2022 Honda CR-V Revealed
The sixth-generation Honda CR-V has been unveiled. The brand-new model has a new style on the outside and inside, additional technology, and an improved hybrid drivetrain. The fifth-generation model, which made its debut in 2016 and underwent a mid-life update in 2019, is replaced by the new CR-V.
The new CR-design V’s completely differs from that of the outgoing model. It is 69mm longer and 10mm broader than the fifth-generation model and has a more upright profile. The wheelbase also has a 10mm moderate boost.
The 2022 Honda CR-V and new BR-V both share the same style. The SUV’s front has a huge, vertical grille, wide headlamps, and a noticeable chrome strip connecting them. The 2022 Honda CR-V has a longer bonnet than its predecessor, and its side profile is distinguished by a prominent shoulder line and black cladding on the wheel arches. The CR-V has thinner L-shaped taillights on the back than it did before.
The interior of the cabin resembles the 11th-generation Honda Civic, which was unveiled last year, quite a little. The new CR-V comes with a 7.0-inch full-digital instrument cluster as standard equipment and offers a 7.0-inch or a 9.0-inch infotainment screen as an option. The infotainment screen is mounted above a simple dashboard with honeycomb-style vents. The air conditioning is still managed by physical knobs and buttons on Honda vehicles.
Updated versions of the 1.5-liter turbo-petrol and 2.0-liter hybrid engines are available for the CR-V. Honda will offer the 1.5-liter engine in lower variants in international markets while the hybrid will be offered in higher configurations. Honda anticipates that the hybrid model will account for half of the new CR-sales.

The second version of the CR-V was released in India in 2004. The SUV was marketed by the manufacturer as a full import for two generations before the fourth-generation vehicle was introduced in 2013 using the CKD process. In contrast to earlier generations, which only offered a petrol engine, the business debuted the fifth-generation model in 2018 with both petrol and diesel engine options. However, the diesel engine was no longer produced with the switch to BS6 emissions in 2020. In December 2020, the CR-V and Civic were completely discontinued.
It is unknown if Honda would introduce the 2022 Honda CR-V in India. If true, it will compete in India with the Volkswagen Tiguan and the future Hyundai Tucson. For the Indian market, the automaker is currently developing a new compact SUV and a midsize SUV.
