Accessories are a profitable business for carmakers, and Honda’s Modulo range of add-ons enjoy a good take up rate. The on-form carmaker will not launch a new product without Modulo accessories, and the new 2017 CR-V is no exception. Here’s the fifth-generation SUV on the Bangkok Motor Show floor, fully decked out.

The canvas here is the base 2.4 litre i-VTEC E 2WD petrol variant, originally identical to the white entry-level car in our earlier main post. That car didn’t look exactly plain, with LED headlamps and plenty of chrome trim, but Modulo parts give it a “sportier” appearance.

You won’t miss it, thanks to the oversized honeycomb pattern of the front grille, which is eggcrate in standard form. The “wings” of the Honda logo is in black instead of chrome. A front bumper garnish with two fake vents in the centre silver section and LED fog lamps complete the Modulo face.

On the sides, the kitted-up CR-V wears wing mirror garnish, door visors, Modulo 18-inch wheels and side steps. A rear bumper garnish, highly conspicuous exhaust muffler and chrome trim on the edge of the tailgate and bumper sill complete the makeover. Metal door sill finishers too, of course.

Once again, the 2017 Honda CR-V makes its Thai debut as a seven-seater, and is available in both diesel and petrol engines in the Land of Smiles. The 1.6 litre i-DTEC turbodiesel makes 160 hp/350 Nm, and is mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission. The carryover 2.4 litre petrol is good for 175 hp/225 Nm, and is paired to a CVT.

Plenty of differences between diesel and petrol, and the Thai E and EL trim levels, all detailed in our earlier post. Coming soon to Malaysia.
