Fresh Off the Boat: Fifth-Gen Honda CR-V Diesel Lands on Philippine Soil

September 23, 2017

When Honda Cars Philippines launched the fifth-generation CR-V last August, it set the stage for a bolder, more versatile Comfortable Runabout Vehicle.  Honda has not been shy about saying that the all-new CR-V will have a number of firsts for the vehicle, specifically, the diesel-powered variants that are set to arrive this September.

Well, September has come around and so has the all-new CR-V. Honda Cars Philippines is pleased to announce the arrival of the first batch of diesel-powered CR-Vs in the country.

Buyers will now be able to experience the power and economy of the 1.6-liter i-DTEC four-cylinder motor that puts out 120hp and 300Nm. These horses are sent to either the front- or all four wheels via class-leading 9-speed automatic gearbox with Electronic Gear Selector.

Moreover, the all-new CR-V makes a return to the practical 7-seat configuration. This allows owners to bring along family and friends, thanks to more seats and cargo-carrying capabilities.

The al-new fifth-gen Honda CR-V in is now being offered in the following variants:

-       2.0S CVT (5-Seater): P1,539,000 (Gasoline variant)
