The fifth generation of the Honda CR-V has been on the market since 2017, as a way of keeping it fresh Honda Japan has recently given its popular crossover an update for the 2021 model year. Aside from the refresh, the Japanese automaker has also introduced a new top-of-the-line variant for the crossover in the form of the Black Edition. As the name states, this variant will now come with black accents on the vehicle. While it will take a keen eye to spot the other minor updates the Black Edition CR-V gets most of the updates.
While the overall design of the refresh Honda CR-V remains familiar the Black Edition gets a couple of new updates that help set it apart from the rest of the lineup. For starters, it now comes with sequential signal lights, a dark chrome grille as well as new fog light housings. On top of this, the vehicle comes with special new badging and a fresh set of newly designed blacked-out wheels that complete the blacked-out look.
On the inside the normal variants of the Honda CR-V remain the same, however, the Black Edition comes with genuine leather seats with a black edition logo, genuine leather-wrapped steering wheel, and a new black wood grain panel. All in all the new Black Edition variant of the popular crossover more or less serves as an aesthetic package that swaps out the vehicle’s chrome accents for black chrome instead.
It is important to note that the Philippine version of the Honda CR-V is sourced from Thailand and as such is more geared towards the ASEAN market. While Honda Philippines has not confirmed anything yet with regards to the local variant of the vehicle getting the new minor updates it is still a possibility as the brand moves forward with new models coming soon.
