MIAS 2013: Honda Turns CR-V into 7-Seater (Once Again)
Beginning April 1, 2013, the 2.0 LX (2WD with automatic transmission) and 2.4 LX (4WD with automatic transmission) variants will have the Detachable Third Row Seat accessory.
“The good thing about this (Detachable Third Row Seat accessory) is it is lightweight; making it trouble-free to attach when needed and detach when not”, said Roberto Ong, HCPI General Manager for Marketing and Sales. Heeding the call to more seating capacity, “we do hope that with this accessory our customers will enjoy the additional space for two more people, making the CR-V seat seven. Now, bigger families or groups can also enjoy the urban refinement the CR-V offers”, he added.
Since its introduction in the Philippines, the CR-V has continued to provide a comfortable ride, excellent maneuverability and a spacious and versatile interior. The 4th generation CR-V builds on these unrivaled qualities by being equipped with the Eco Assist System that improves fuel efficiency. The Eco Assist System is composed of the ECON mode and the Eco-coaching ambient light. By engaging the ECON mode, the performance of the engine, drive-by-wire, transmission, and air-con is optimized to improve fuel efficiency. At the same time, the Eco-coaching ambient light in the instrument panel promotes a more fuel efficient driving habit by glowing green when throttle input is light and glowing white when throttle input is heavy.
With the addition of the Detachable Third Row Seat accessory in the 2.0 LX and 2.4 EX variants, the CR-V gives further reason to make you rethink what you know about the usual SUV.
