The Honda CR-V has been one of the most loved SUVs in India and when the company brought the 5th generation of the CR-V to India at the Auto Expo 2018, the expectations of the customers soared. Honda has been itching to bring the CR-V back to India and considering that the segment the CR-V enters has seen a lot of competition recently with new-gen models of the Toyota Fortuner, Ford Endeavour and of course new cars like the Skoda Kodiaq and even the Volkswagen Tiguan. The new generation of the CR-V therefore has to up the ante and yes Honda will probably be able to pull it off. The company had already mentioned that it's bringing 3 cars to India this year and the CR-V is part of that plan.
