Honda today had the world premiere of its all-new SUV model, the CR-V Hybrid, at Auto Shanghai 2017. Equipped with the Honda Sport Hybrid i-MMD two-motor hybrid system, the CR-V Hybrid is claimed to offer both dynamic driving performance and excellent environmental performance at the same time. The Honda CR-V Hybrid is based on the fifth-generation CR-V that was unveiled a few months ago.
The CR-V Hybrid also comes loaded with a full complement of features, including the Honda Sensing suite of advanced safety and driver-assistive technologies. The CR-V Hybrid is scheduled to go on sale in China in the second half of 2017 from Dongfeng Honda Automobile Co.
In India, the CR-V is sold as a petrol-only model and lack of a diesel engine for a vehicle this size means sales are low. Honda is yet to bring in a mid-cycle refresh for the fourth-gen car that went on sale internationally more than a year ago. The top-spec CR-V currently is priced around Rs 32.4 lakh (on-road, Mumbai). At this price, there are rugged options available such as the Toyota Fortuner and Ford Endeavour, which come with a seven-seat layout and torquey diesel engines.
