Honda CR-V lineup has been expanded in select markets across the world with the introduction of the new CR-V Hybrid Sport-L Trim. The new variant is priced around $1,090 or approximately 90,000 over the pricing structure of the existing Honda CR-V in the US market. But for this bump up in pricing, there is quite a lot of updates to look forward to.

Honda CR-V is a popular SUV model from the Japanese brand in many countries although it failed to rake up respectable sales numbers here in India. The CR-V was taken off India shelves a few years back with the company now focused on bringing in the Honda Elevate, a mid-size SUV that is tailor-made for the Indian car market. The CR-V, however, remains a formidable and premium offering elsewhere.
