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.

- Two x rear USB Ports
