The new CR-V will be available in 2.0-litre and the 2.4-litre petrol variants. Due to the high sulphur content in the Indian diesel, the 2.2-litre i-DTEC is not used in country.

The three-bar horizontal front grille is also much more dominant than the current CR-V’s, with slimmed-down headlights flanking it on either side. The lower front bumper is designed to get SUV capability. The new CR-V will never comprise on the quality, refinement and functionality.
In order to reduce the cost, the companies are following the trend of assembling it locally. To withstand in the current competition, the new CR-V will also be assembled locally. Even though the price of the car is not announced officially, we expecting the price at a range of Rs.20 lakhs to Rs.24 lakhs. Moreover new CR-V will be a good competitor of Outlander and BMW X1 Petrol.
