    Honda displayed the CR-V Mugen concept on its stand at the Kuala Lumpur International Motor Show (KLIMS) last week. The SUV on display was finished in red and had silver accents on the new front splitter and rear diffuser. The car also comes with a new grille with the Mugen badge and body coloured inserts as well as new side skirts, which are also finished in red, along with Mugen badging on the tailgate. The SUV on display sported 18-inch alloy wheels.

    The CR-V Mugen concept car has not been mechanically enhanced and only boasts visual enhancements. Under the hood, the CR-V Mugen concept car uses the same 1.5-litre, four-cylinder VTEC turbo-petrol engine available in that market. The motor, which produces 193hp and 243Nm of torque, is not offered in India.

    The CR-V Mugen is already available in Japan and as there are no performance upgrades made to the car, the body kit can be purchased directly from Mugen and fitted to the 2018 CR-V. The Mugen kit includes the front splitter, rear diffuser and side skirts, as well as even larger 19-inch wheels MDR alloy wheels.

    Honda launched the new CR-V in India last month at Rs 28.15 lakh for the petrol, Rs 30.65 lakh for the diesel and Rs 32.75 lakh for the diesel with all-wheel-drive (ex-showroom, India). However, there is no word on whether the Japanese brand will bring the Mugen version to India.
