The Honda CR-V may not have set sales charts ablaze in India but has always found favour with more sophisticated, upmarket SUV buyers in the country. And Honda is launching the all-new, fifth generation CR-V in India, today. What makes the new CR-V all the more interesting is the fact that this time, Honda has also equipped it with a diesel engine, an AWD system and a third row of seats. This helps the CR-V tick a lot more boxes on premium SUV buyers' lists than it ever did, thereby making it a lot more competitive as well. The diesel engine under its hood is a new, 1.6-litre four-cylinder engine, while the petrol engine is a refreshed and more powerful version of the 2.0-litre, four-cylinder engine seen on the CR-V previously. We are bringing you live updates from the launch event right here.
