The petrol engine, however, is only available with a two-wheel driveline and the four-wheel-drive system has also been dropped along with the diesel engine.

On the inside, the Honda CR-V features a layered dashboard with contemporary styling accented with wooden embellishments on the dashboard, the central tunnel and the door pads, raised transmission tunnel with a chunky gear selector, satin silver accents around the cabin, full-colour TFT digital instruments cluster with driver attention monitor, steering mounted controls for the infotainment, telephony & cruise control, centrally mounted 17.8-cm touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto & Apple CarPlay integration, leather upholstery etc. 

In the engine department, the current Honda CR-V for sale is powered by a BS6 emissions-compliant 2.0-litre i-VTEC four-cylinder 4-valve/cylinder SOHC petrol engine that makes 154 PS of power and 189 Nm of torque matched to a CVT automatic gearbox and two-wheel driveline.
