Honda is planning to launch a special edition model of the CR-V in India. It is likely to get updated aesthetics along with additional features. Although Honda has not yet officially confirmed anything about the limited run CR-V, it is expected to go on sale in the coming few weeks.
The CR-V Limited Edition is likely to be based on facelifted CR-V, which is already on sale globally. As a result, it may get a new front grille with less chrome, redesigned front and rear bumpers and updated headlamps. Additional features on offer might include powered co-passenger seat, front parking sensors, auto-folding ORVMs and a powered tailgate.
Other features on the limited-run CR-V are likely to remain similar to the standard SUV. The current CR-V gets auto LED headlamps, rain-sensing wipers, panoramic sunroof, auto-dimming IRVM, dual-zone auto AC, a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, digital instrument cluster, tilt and telescopic steering, parking camera, Honda LaneWatch camera and ambient lighting.
For safety, it gets 6 airbags, ABS with EBD, rear parking sensors, ISOFIX child seat anchors, vehicle stability assist, agile handling assist, hill launch assist, electronic parking brake with auto hold and walk away auto-lock.
Under the hood, the CR-V Special Edition will remain identical to the standard CR-V. So it will be powered by a 2.0-litre petrol engine making 154PS and 189Nm mated to CVT. The CR-V petrol is not offered with a 4WD system.
As mentioned above, the CR-V Special Edition is expected to launch in the coming few weeks, around Diwali. It is expected to be offered in limited numbers only. Honda is expected to price the limited-run model at a premium of around Rs 1 lakh over the standard CR-V, which is priced at Rs 28.27 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). It will take on likes of the Hyundai Tucson and the upcoming Skoda Kodiaq petrol.
