The two versions of diesel CRV will share the same package. The diesel trims could edge out the lower-priced petrol with its added third row. The sliding second row enables effortless access to the third row. The best part is that the third row also gets its own AC vent with separate controls. The third row will extend the seating capacity of the CR-V to seven-seater. It also means that a big family could find it an appealing offer.

4. Verdict:

The highlight feature that the diesel version gets over petrol is the seven-seater layout. Basically, the consideration will come down to five-seater vs seven-seater. So if you have a large family or interested in hosting a group hang-out, the diesel version might be the right option for you.
