2017 Honda CR-V with 7 seats confirmed for Thailand


Aravind Jayachandran,

It goes without saying that I’m a huge petrolhead and can apparently convert all my driving emotions into words you can read.

Will launch for sale on March 29.

Honda Thailand has dropped the first set of teasers of the 2017 Honda CR-V, one of which confirms a new feature never before offered in the crossover – third-row seating. The next-gen CR-V will launch on March 29 in the country.

Another interesting feature of the Thai-spec feature is the lack of a traditional gear selector for the CVT; instead it gets an Acura NSX-inspired selector with buttons for P, R, N and D. Honda Thailand has also confirmed that the CR-V will, for the first time, offer the option of diesel power from a 1.6L i-DTEC unit paired to a nine-speed automatic transmission, which produces 160 hp at 4,000 rpm and 350 Nm of torque at 2,000 rpm.

Otherwise, the new CR-V will share most of the features available in the U.S-spec model, which includes signature Honda LED headlights (Touring trim) with wing-shaped LED DRLs, Honda-first Active Shutter Grille to lower aerodynamic drag, new aluminum-forged alloy wheels, narrower A-pillars, Hands-Free Access Power Tailgate and plenty of chrome garnish.

The Thai-spec Honda CR-V is manufactured at Honda’s Ayutthaya plant in Thailand, which serves as the production hub for ASEAN markets and India. India is reported to receive the new Honda CR-V later this year, and the company plans to localize the vehicle higher than before.
