Honda Motors India Ltd has confirmed that it would be launching their International Model Honda CR-V SUV later next month.
CRV – (Compact Recreational Vehicle) the crossover SUV which was showcased in Los Angeles Auto show initially in 2011 and was put on sale in the International market late in 2012, so come 2013 February the all new CR-V will be finally launched here which this will be the third generation Car to be available in the Indian market.
The 2013 CR-V will have 2 Liter, 4 cylinder i-VTEC petrol engine that produces 153Bhp-190Nm of torque, though there is nothing much to cheer about it as right from the word go Honda will have to faces some stiff competition from Toyota Fortuner, Mitsubishi Pajero Sport, Mahindra XUV 5oo who all have Turbo Diesel Engines to play with and are also in the same 20 lakh rupees market.
The USP of the CR-V will only be its monocoque design which is better know for its car like ride handling and the “H” badging which we are sure that it will have a few takers in the market who are looking for the good looking urban SUV which can seat 5 comfortably and that can go anywhere.
The pricing of this is expected to be around 28 lakh.
