Modulo kits out the Honda CR-V
Over a year has passed since the Honda CR-V made its global debut although some have noticed that the popular crossover doesn't have a Modulo pack. Well now, that's been resolved as the CR-V now has the upgraded styling pack, at least in Japan.
As it is a styling pack, there are no upgrades to the engine. Cosmetic enhancements include a full body kit and a new set of wheels. At the front is a deeper chin with more angular corner edges for a bit more sportiness. There's also thicker cladding on the sides with a brushed aluminum effect panel by the edges. For the rear, it gets a special rear bumper with a faux skid plate and a unique spoiler. Black-finished alloy wheels complete the whole pack but one with silver contrasts can be specified.
There are other accessories that can be added to the CR-V. One can add the Modulo step boards for easier ingress and egress from the crossover, and there's also a roof rail kit for the outdoorsy crowd. Extra chrome garnishes can be added to the side mirrors and fenders, with the latter displaying the CR-V badge. A rear bumper protector can also help prevent those nasty carpark dings. Lastly, a remote starter can be fitted to the car, just like the one found in the local-spec Civics.
Inside, it's largely similar to the standard CR-V but it does get illuminated door sill plates and Modulo floor mats. Interestingly, the Modulo CR-V also gets Alcantara seats.
The car seen here has all the accessories fitted but Honda says the parts can be purchased individually. At the moment, there's no word if the Modulo kit will make its way to the Philippines just yet.
