By CARSIFU | 28 March 2017

BANGKOK: The fifth-generation CR-V was the highlight at Honda's display area at the 2017 Bangkok Motor Show.

It is powered by a 1.6L i-DTEC Diesel Turbo engine for the first time with a Shift-by-Wire nine-speed automatic transmission, or a 2.4L DOHC i-VTEC engine with a CVT transmission.

The spacious cabin offers third-row seating with seven adjustable seats that offer various configuration options, and a Hands-free Power Tailgate.

The tailgate can be opened via a movement of your foot underneath the rear, when you stand behind the car.

Also, unlike the CR-V with the i-VTEC petrol engine which has a centrally mounted gear stick, the diesel-powered CR-V does not have a gear lever.

Instead, the diesel-powered CR-V has push buttons for P, N, R, D and S (sport mode) found on the centre console.

The new CR-V features LED headlights and tail lights, LED Daytime Running Lights, and new sporty-designed aluminum alloy wheels.

It has an air-conditioning system for both the 2nd and 3rd-row of seating, and piano black and wood center console trim.

Among the premium-grade features are an 8-way power-adjustable driver's seat with 4-way lumbar support and an i-dual-zone automatic air conditioner.
