2017 Honda CR-V Launched In Thailand

Honda Thailand has officially launched the all-new 2017 Honda CR-V. For Thailand, a total of four models are available at launch. Thailand is the first market globally to receive the three-row, seven seats set up.

For the first time ever, Honda Thailand is offering a turbodiesel engine for the CR-V. The new engine is a 1.6-litre i-DTEC turbodiesel that delivers 160 hp and 350 Nm that is mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission. Honda says that the new i-DTEC mill can deliver up to 18.9 km/L. Apart from the turbodiesel, Honda is also offering a naturally-aspirated 2.4-litre petrol i-VTEC engine with 173 hp and 224 Nm. The petrol mill is also E85-compatible. Similar to the Civic, Honda has dropped its five-speed automatic in favour of their CVT for the petrol variant.

According to our Thai sister site Autospinn, four variants are available at launch, namely diesel-powered CR-V DT EL 4WD and DT E, whilst petrol-powered variants include the CR-V 2.4 EL 4WD and 2.4 E.

Towards the rear, the new model features a rear end design that is a departure from its predecessors, with its tail lights now integrated into the tailgate itself. 

Earlier, we mentioned that the all-new Thai-spec 2017 Honda CR-V is the first to receive the three row, seven seats set up. To accomodate everyone with comfort, Honda has engineered the air-conditioning system to extend to the second and third row seats. A number of premium features are also available on the 2017 CR-V, including an 8-way power adjustable driver seat with 4-way lumbar support, i-dual-zone automatic air conditioning, seven-inch Advanced Touch Audio Display and a TFT display that replaces the traditional gauges. Exclusive for the diesel-powered models is the button-type gear selector.

Safety is also class-leading, with the 2017 Honda CR-V boasting a Driver Attention Monitor, Agile Handling Assist, Honda LaneWatch, Electric Parking Brake, and Automatic Brake Hold. Airbag count is six for all variants of the new CR-V. 

Buyers in Thailand can choose these colours for their new CR-V: White Orchid Pearl, Crystal Black Pearl, Modern Steel Metallic, Lunar Silver Metallic, and a new color, Dark Olive Metallic.
