The exterior design has received a few updates that include a new bumper at the front end with more extensive openings for the fog lamps. To enhance the styling, it now gets wide-width chrome treatment that appears to be the “moustache” of the car. The grille that is placed between the headlamps has also been updated, which looks much more pronounced. The rear end features all-new graphics and the tail lamps receive tint treatment. In addition to that, the chrome garnish has also been darkened.

The facelifted non-hybrid CR-V variants are powered by a 1.5-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine, which puts out 190 hp of maximum power and 243 Nm of peak torque. The mill is mated to a continuously variable transmission (CVT), and the user gets the option to choose between front-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive. The CR-V Hybrid model will get an Atkinson-cycle 2.0 litre four-cylinder motor along with two electric motors to churn out some extra miles.
