While prices are up, slightly, Honda points to the fact that every variant gets an added $2600-$4350 worth of kit when compared with their equivalent fourth-generation variant. And, for the first time, the CR-V will offer a seven-seat variant.

“Twenty years ago the first generation Honda CR-V redefined the segment by delivering space, efficiency and versatility in a compact package. One that Australian families had never seen before,” said Honda Australia Director, Mr Stephen Collins. 

“Our customers consistently tell us what a joy their CR-Vs are to live with and the fifth generation builds on this reputation with new levels of style, versatility, technology and value.

“The all-new CR-V is bolder and more stylish than ever, and in true Honda fashion it nails the brief for versatility with more interior space plus a new seven seat option,” said Collins.

The all-new Honda CR-V range will be available in both front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive configurations, with seating for five or seven passengers across line-up of five grades.
