The new CR-V is 122 kgs lighter than the outgoing model. Based on the same platform as its previous generation CR-V, which was launched in Japan in 2005, the new Honda CR-V is being offered in a multi link rear suspension design.
2013 Honda CR-V is a five seater and is modestly sized when viewing it from its exterior while internal space is at a premium. Where pricing is concerned, Honda Cars India is expected to price the new CR-V at a lower price, compared to the outgoing variant. Even with the launch of the new CR-V, India wont get the diesel option as only petrol variant will be on offer.
Honda India wants to position the upcoming 2013 CR-V so as to see marked improvement in sales as compared to the current generation model. The CR-V available in India is being imported from Japan.
