Honda has been selling cars across a variety of segments in the Indian market. The Brio and Amaze are aimed at mass-market segments while the City serves the C-segment. Moving slightly up, we have the Mobilio and BR-V that are slotted in the UV segment. Move further up and you have the CR-V which is a premium SUV brought down to India via the CBU route.

The Honda CR-V competes in the higher-end of the SUV segment and while the earlier generation of the vehicle was quite popular in our market, the new one has failed to make a mark owing to its high price which is due to the fact that the car is levied with a lot of duties and taxes.

The next generation Honda CR-V is going to be due in India in the next couple of years and this time around, the Japanese automaker will be doing a significant amount of localisation on the vehicle. It has been learnt that localisation level will be as high as 60-65 per cent. Thanks to this, duties on the car will be reduced too.

All of this will result in the prices of the Honda CR-V being more attractive and if slotted in the market well, it will help Honda rake in a lot of numbers. The current generation CR-V competes with the Hyundai Santa Fewhile the Toyota Fortuner and Ford Endeavour also fall in the same price bracket.
