Fresh from the launch of the updated CR-V in Thailand, Honda has now released the sportier-looking Modulo trim. Unlike the previous CR-V Modulo, Honda Thailand now offers this facelifted model in two variants: Sports Package and Smart Package. The differences between the two packages, however, are quite negligible.
The most obvious upgrades over the standard CR-V facelift are the new wraparound bodykit. Upfront, there is a new body-color bumper garnish paired with a faux skid plate. Along the side, there’s a new side skirt available as well. At the back, the Modulo kit adds a rear bumper garnish to match the front. Completing the exterior makeover are new 18-inch wheels and a tailgate spoiler.
All the added Modulo bits give the crossover a sportier look as opposed to a more traditional crossover design with black body cladding. Optional extras include a window visor with chrome trim, chrome door handle protector, chrome side mirror garnish, tailgate garnish, chrome exhaust tip, and roof rail/crossbar.
As mentioned earlier, Honda Thailand will offer the CR-V Modulo in two packages. The biggest difference between the Smart and Sport package are the contents included. The Smart package comprises only four pieces including the front and rear bumper garnish, skid plate, and tailgate spoiler. Meanwhile, the Sport package ditches the spoiler but gets the side skirt, door mirror garnish, and tailgate garnish. Neither package comes with the more stylish 18-inch wheels.
Inside, the CR-V Modulo gets some upgrades too. Sidestep garnishes available in chrome or with LED, footwell lights, and a rear panel lining cover are just some of the Modulo goodies available. Customer can also spec their CR-V with a tonneau cover and rubber matting as an extra.
With the debut of the new CR-V Modulo in Thailand, we can't wait until Honda Cars Philippines Inc officially debut the updated CR-V locally.
