Yusak acknowledged the negativity surrounding the price of the all-new CR-V in Indonesia but knew customers would accept this as Honda consistently provides value for them. “I have also read the comments and price hikes are normal for an all-new model but I believe our customers would understand the true value,” he said.

Still, prices for the all-new CR-V in the archipelago are expected to increase again in October as the current prices are valid until 30-September.
