Honda has introduced a new range-topping trim level for its CR-V SUV in Japan named the Black Edition.
Available from June 19, the CR-V Black Edition brings a sinister appearance courtesy of black painted 18-inch aluminum wheels, smoked headlights and taillights, as well as dark chrome plated exterior trim for the grille, fog light garnish, door lower garnish, and tailgate garnish – plus a Black Edition emblem.
Inside, the Honda CR-V Black Edition features genuine leather seats with Black Edition logo, piano black door ornament panel and door handle, black dashboard panel and black roof lining.
The Black Edition treatment can be had with either the 1.5-liter VTEC turbocharged four-cylinder gasoline engine or the 2.0-liter two-motor hybrid powertrain which has been renamed e:HEV for the new model year.
Other modifications across the CR-V lineup include the introduction of sequential turn signals at the rear and heated steering wheel as standard features. In addition, Honda has also added three new colors to the SUV’s palette, a new fabric / prime leather upholstery for the EX grade, as well as a revised steering wheel and heated rear seats for the Masterpiece grade.
Prices for the Honda CR-V Black Edition start from 3,774,100 yen ($35,300) for the 1.5L model in five-seat, front-wheel drive configuration. The Honda CR-V e:HEV EX Black Edition can be had from 4,338,400 yen ($40,600), while all-wheel-drive is available on all variants at extra cost.
