Car will be sold in South Africa with both petrol and diesel engine options.There would be three models of the car out of which two would be petrol and one diesel.
Two petrol engines would be the 2.0 litre and 2.4 litre i-VTEC petrol engines. The 2.0 litre petrol engine would be coming with the in-line fuel supply which would produce a maximum power of 153 bhp at a torque of 192 Nm, with four cylinder and 6 speed manual transmission gearbox and a front wheel drive.

The new Honda CR-V launched in South Africa is more like Indian Honda CR-V because specification of this car is more according to the European CR-V instead of American CR-V. As per the Honda CR V pictures there is a perfect balance between the car and an SUV in each and every aspect including the exterior design. This car can be used for both casual and formal occasion.
