Seating capacity increased to seven people

Honda Cars Philippines Incorporated (HCPI), Honda’s automobile assembly and sales subsidiary in the Philippines, introduces the detachable third row seat accessory for select variants of its CR-V model.

As an introductory promo, customers who purchase the 2.0 LX and 2.4 LX CR-V variants from April 1, 2013 will have the detachable third row seat accessory at no additional costs.

The detachable third row seat accessory will be able to add up to two more passengers to the CR-V's seating capacity, however, apart from having no head rest, the accessory also doesn't have any provision for safety belts.

“The good thing about this (Detachable Third Row Seat accessory) is it is lightweight; making it trouble-free to attach when needed and detach when not”, said Roberto Ong, HCPI General Manager for Marketing and Sales. Heeding the call to more seating capacity, “we do hope that with this accessory our customers will enjoy the additional space for two more people, making the CR-V seat seven. Now, bigger families or groups can also enjoy the urban refinement the CR-V offers”, he added.
