Honda Cars India (HCIL) has begun assembling the fourth generation CR-V at its Greater Noida plant in the state of Uttar Pradesh. Due to the lack of import duties, the new model is now some 10% cheaper.

"With the launch of the fourth generation CR-V, we once again affirm our commitment to bring the latest from the global Honda portfolio to our customers in India. It is a matter of great pride for us at HCIL to assemble the CR-V in India for the first time," Hironori Kanayama, president and CEO, Honda Cars India said, according to a release from HCIL.

The new CR-V will be available with the choice of two four-cylinder petrol engines.

Prices (ex-showroom Delhi) are as follows:

  • 2.4 automatic with audio video navigation: INR2.39m (US$44,225)
  • 2.4 automatic: INR2.24m
  • 2.0 automatic: INR2.09m
