Extra seats for CR-V

Honda’s next-generation CR-V mid-size SUV, due in 2017, looks set to get seven seats. Honda Australia is desperate for some sort of seven-seat SUV to give larger families an option above the popular CR-V.

And with no larger SUV in the wings to replace the MDX – at least one with the steering wheel on the right – the Australian office in Tullamarine has pushed for more seats in a CR-V. “That’s another option that’s under consideration,” Honda Australia director Stephen Collins said.
