All-New 2024 Honda CR-V Makes ASEAN Debut

The all-new sixth-generation Honda CR-V has made its ASEAN debut in Thailand and true to previous reports, it drops its current engine line-up for an entirely new one.

Both the 1.6-liter i-DTEC diesel engine and the normally aspirated gasoline engine (whether 2.0-liter or 2.4-liter) are gone in favor of a turbocharged 1.5-liter and an electrified 2.0-liter 4-cylinder.

The base engine is a turbocharged 1.5-liter 4-cylinder making 190 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and 240 Nm of torque from 1,700 to 5,000 rpm. This is paired to a CVT gearbox driving either the front or all four wheels via Honda’s Real Time All-Wheel Drive.

Meanwhile, the CR-V RS variant is available solely with the Real Time All-Wheel Drive system and e:HEV strong hybrid system. The e:HEV pairs a lean-burning Atkinson Cycle 2.0-liter 4-cylinder with 148 horsepower and 183 Nm of torque with electric motors for a combined output of 184 horsepower from 5,000 to 8,000 rpm and 335 Nm of torque from 0 to 2,000 rpm. This, per Honda Thailand, doesn’t use a direct drive transmission. Instead, it also uses an E-CVT system.

In terms of handling, the 2024 CR-V’s dual pinion EPS gives the compact SUV a heightened sense of agility, backed up by Agile Handling Assist (AHA).

The all-new CR-V is larger in every dimension than the model it replaces (4,691 mm x 1,866 mm x 1,681 or 1,691 mm in length, width, and height)—84 mm longer, 9 mm wider, and 3 mm higher compared to its predecessor, with a wheelbase stretched by 38 mm to 2,700 mm. It is available in 5- or 7-seater configurations which offer a 60/40 split-fold for the second row and a 50/50 split-fold for the third row.

Features found in the all-new CR-V include a powered front driver seat with memory, a fully digital gauge cluster measuring 10.2 inches, dual zone climate control with rear vents and a Plasmacluster ionizer, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, wireless phone charging, heads-up display, and a 12-speaker Bose sound system.

In terms of safety, the 2024 CR-V benefits not just from a full suite or airbags, ABS with EBD, and vehicle stability assist, but it also gains proximity sensors at all four corners, a 360-degree camera, adaptive driving beams with active cornering functionality, and Honda’s Lane Watch blind spot camera.

Also, for the first-time ever, the all-new CR-V gets the RS treatment with a sportified exterior complete with more body-colored components, a high-gloss black grille with RS badging, sequential LED turn signal indicators, and 19-inch alloy wheels. Ignite Red Metallic is exclusive to the CR-V RS, while Canyon River Blue Metallic is available on the e:HEV models only. Other colors are Platinum White Pearl, Meteoroid Gray Metallic, Lunar Silver Metallic, and Crystal Black Pearl.

In terms of prices, in Thailand, the all-new CR-V range starts at 1,419,000 Baht (P 2.276 million) for the base E and goes all the way to 1,729,000 Baht (P 2.77 million) for the e:HEV RS 4WD.


  1. So does it have pano roof as stated in the previous article? Comments got me curious.

    1. Yup. The photo in the story clearly shows the panoramic sunroof.

    2. Yuh, I commented early when there still were no photos.

  3. This 2.3 to 2.8M is pricey if this goes on sale near the Thai SRP. So either we get it at this rate or a lot of tech goods chopped off for the PH version.
