2013 CR-V India

Honda will launch the next generation CR-V in India on the 12th of February 2013. The company is hoping to increase sales of the soft-roader and has gone the CKD route with the vehicle, which will be assembled for the very first time in India. The 2013 Honda CR-V has major updates over its predecessor, making it a much better car than the outgoing model. Honda is still not offering any diesel version of the CR-V in India and the company’s focus will continue to be on the Brio and its future derivatives (Amaze, Brio-based MPV, etc).

Honda is offering two petrol engines on the new CR-V. A 2.0-litre petrol engine which produces 156 PS of power at 6500 RPM and 190 Nm of torque at 4300 RPM. Honda claims a mileage of 13.7 km/l on this engine. The second engine offered on the new CR-V is the 2.4-litre petrol engine which produces 190 PS of power at 7000 RPM and 226 Nm of torque at 4400 RPM. This engine returns a claimed mileage of 12 km/l. There will be 4 variants of the 2013 Honda CR-V in India and only the base 2.0-litre variant will be offered with a 6-speed manual transmission. Rest all variants are mated to a 5-speed automatic gearbox.

    a diesel engine in the cr-v would have made people go crazy for this car, looks so good.

    Dock, without a diesel mill and that too going the CKD assembly route, Honda must be on a suicide mission!!

    • Javeid Khan

      Somehow i cant comprehend why they are not gettibg diesel. Maybe they just want to keep it in the portfolio, but no denying that the SUV segment is a completely diesel market.

    • No One

      May be they know something that we dont know with Petrol price point.

      Secondly, in India, hardly people actually go off road with their SUV, petrol in a premium soft roader is not that of a bad idea either.

      Consider if really diesel goes without subsidy, it will touch 67 mark compare to 74 here in Kolkata.

      Everyday soft roading based SUV for city, petrol engine, doesnt sound that bad to me, specially with CRV tradition to be one of the best soft roader

    • Lonely Traveler

      Even at the same price per litre for Diesel and Petrol, Diesel turns out to be cheaper as km / l is more for diesel.

    • Ganesh babu

      True, especially when it comes to vehicles that weigh more than a ton. At 1.5 tons, diesel ought to be an obvious choice for the new CRV. Like the editor suggests, Lets just hope that Honda will follow up with a diesel CRV later.

  • Crazywheels

    please put a diesel heart to the most comfortable SUV within 30 L. people want it badly.

  • Akash

    Why no diesel . . . . .

  • viper

    went from 14 lakh to whatever!!!! what a scam by honda! rising input costs!

  • Nikhil

    Gas guzzler

    • Crazywheels

      Cant say as a gas guzzler. Competitors are offering mileage figures less than 10 KMPL ARAI.

  • Swift

    “Why no diesel?”
    May be coz honda knows that, by end of this year, petrol and diesel price difference in india will be <~INR 10. Oil companies are planning to increase diesel price by INR 10.5 by this year.
