Last July, we told you about the minor refresh of the Thai-market Honda CR-V. We also mentioned some of the new features that this popular crossover will get. Now, the refreshed CR-V is finally arriving here on our shores.
The updated Philippine-model CR-V’s exterior will receive a minor nip and tuck just like the Thai-spec vehicle. These changes include redesigned front and rear bumpers, a slightly revised taillamp cluster, and new alloy wheel designs. The face-lifted CR-V can now be had in four exterior colors; Modern Steel Metallic, Cosmic Blue, Ignite Red, and Platinum White Pearl.
Most of the upgrades, though, will be in the form of more standard features. And because the CR-V normally comes with an extensive equipment list, we’ll let the spec sheet below do the talking. However, it is worth highlighting that the Honda Sensing suite of driver aids is available starting from the mid-spec S trim level, and that all variants except for the base diesel one are thankfully equipped with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
These are the prices of the face-lifted Honda CR-V:
- SX Diesel 9AT AWD Honda Sensing (7-seater) – P2,158,000
- S Diesel 9AT Honda Sensing (7-seater) – P1,888,000
- V Diesel 9AT (7-seater) – P1,713,000
- 2.0S CVT (5-seater) – P1,678,000
As it is, this generation of CR-V is a very enticing choice for those looking to get a new compact crossover. Question is, will the cosmetic changes and new features be enough to have shoppers lining up to get the new CR-V? If you are interested, have a look at the detailed specs and features below.
