2019 Honda CR-V gains a cut-priced seven seat variant

By David Bonnici, 08 Jan 2019 Car News

2019 Honda CR-V medium SUV gains a cut-priced seven seat variant

The new Honda CR-V VTi-E sacrifices a few creature comforts for a family-friendly sub-$35K price tag

Buying a Honda CR-V with three rows just got more affordable, with a new lower-spec model added to the range that’s $4500 cheaper than premium-equipped VTi-L, which until now was the only seven-seat option.

Priced at $34,490, the CR-V VTi-E is one of the most affordable seven-seat SUV on the market after the Mitsubishi Outlander and Nissan X-Trail, whose three-row versions are priced from $30,990 and $32,990 respectively.

The Honda CR-V is also one of the few medium SUVs to offer an extra row, along with the Mitsubishi Outlander and Nissan X-Trail.

The front-wheel-drive Honda CR-V VTi-E shares most of the features of the five-seat VTi, but adds leather-appointed seats, and third-row ceiling air-conditioning vents to decent features list that also includes:

  • Two x rear USB Ports
  • Dual zone climate control
  • 7-inch infotainment screen
  • Apple Carplay/Android Auto
  • 18-inch alloy wheels
  • Three-mode reversing camera
  • 8-way powered driver’s seat
  • Driver attention monitor system
  • Smart keyless entry
  • Push-button start
  • Full size spare alloy wheel
  • Front fog lights
  • Tyre pressure monitoring system

The VTi-E brings the 2019 Honda CR-V range to seven, which all share the same 1.5-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine with CVT automatic.
