The CR V will have a seven seater option where all the three rows will be reclining. A single-action ‘dive down’ 60:40 split-fold seatbacks will ensure more freedom of activity for the passengers. The load space of the automobile has increased by 250 mm, making up enough space for a mountain bike to fit it. There are also extra large capacity door pockets, which will be good enough to accomodate a full size tablet. A new display audio system with Apple CarPlay and AndroidAuto connectivity is also one of the new introductions in the 2018 model. A volume button has also been introduced finally.
