Honda has introduced the CR-V Black Edition in Thailand, giving the SUV a sporty touch.
Priced at 1.47 million Thai Baht (RM188,875), the CR-V Black Edition, as the name suggests, is completely blacked out both on the exterior as well as the interior.
Sporting Crystal Black Pearl paint, the CR-V Black Edition also comes with a black roof rail, which is a first for the CR-V.
Other highlights on the exterior include the black chrome front grille, a sporty black front bumper with black chrome trim, a sporty black rear bumper, a “Black Edition” emblem, as well as a panoramic sunroof.
Similar to the exterior, the cabin is also blacked-out. Highlights include a large console decorated with black wood grain material and Piano Black trim. Also worth mentioning are the seats that come with “Black Edition” logo embroidery.
Under the hood, we have Honda’s 2.4 litre DOHC i-VTEC petrol engine with CVT automatic transmission with two wheel drive (2WD), producing 173 PS and 224 Nm of torque.
Safety wise, the CR-V Black Edition comes with Honda LaneWatch, Electric Parking Brake, Auto Brake Hold Assist, Driver Attention Monitor, and Walk Away Wuto Lock among others.
