I thought i've read in a previous post here these as being region specific as well:
- rear seat warmers
- HUD - is this really true or only for accords
- larger LCD for infotainment
- paddle shifters - possibly with certain engines only
- faux wood trim extended to the center console - around the cup holders - ordering mine soon
- soft (leather?) material around the shifter console - vs. our (US) hard plastic - can't find the part number from overseas.
- and I could swear seeing a picture of a CR-V with the pilot/clarity style shifter buttons vs. the stick/handle

of all the non-US features the ones that I really wanted and will hate those getting them in '19:
- rear seat warmers - wife keeps reminding me when she's sitting with the baby
- panoramic moonroof
- the HUD if that's true - I really liked seeing it on the CX-5 and think about it every time I get into our CR-V and start her up.
- shifter buttons - I hated the idea at first but if I can't do manual auto shifts then I'd rather have them out of the way.

How do the prices of the cars compare between the different countries?
Here in Canada the Touring is $40,412 CDN according to the Honda site. That comes to $31,347 USD at today's conversion.

I went to the Honda Australia website and it seems the loaded CRV there is $47,675 AUD which comes to $37,037 USD at today's conversion.

I wonder why the panoramic roof isn't available in U.S. My Kia had it. I know some manufacturers have been investigated due to shattering glass...maybe they didn't want to deal with it.

I also don't fully understand why a lot of these features are missing other than maybe price... I had a bunch of these on my Ford Explorer

Mine is made in Thailand like the Australian models but they of course left out all the heating features and LKAS which would get you killed over here.

As the Honda manager explained to me each region sends a group of reps to Honda HQ and they pick the options that they want for their market. The Touring has a lot of great features and you guys get some extra software features that the others don’t get.

The Russian version does have a HUD but it’s the only version I have seen with one.

Capless gas tank seems to be mainly in the USA and Canada. It would not be allowed in certain countries. We do get full LED lighting also.

I'm jealous of the people who get active cornering lights. My last car, a 05 Acura RL, had the swivel lights and they are sweet. I'd really like these given I now live in a rural area with winding roads and few street lights along with my fairly long driveway where the swivelling lights would be helpful in a couple spots. That's assuming they work the same way as they did on my RL.

I don't know if you are just using my post to springboard into showing people what lucky Australians get with the CRV or if you are trying to say I am wrong about it being available there. If the latter, it clearly shows the panoramic sunroof so I am hoping/guessing it is the former.
Not sure why you would call them lucky. They built them with the steering wheel on the wrong side! :)

1.6 DOHC Turbo Diesel - 9 Speed A/T (Push Button Gear Selector) - 7 Seater
1.5 DOHC Turbo Petrol- CVT - 5 seater / 7 Seater - Rear Privacy Glass
2.0 SOHC Petrol - CVT
2.4 DOHC Petrol - CVT

7 Speed Paddle Shift CVT is a standard feature in certain countries.
S mode - 7 speed sequential manual shifting but automatically shift down when speed is low. The paddle shift is functional both in D and S.

Warranty also differs depending from what country the vehicle is purchased. Other countries don't have law similar to Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act.
5 years unlimited mileage
3 years or 100,000 km without additional warranty for the Powertrain

OK I went in and made a bunch of edits/updates to the first post

I probably won't add the engines unless something is unique to a market (like the diesel and hybrid) because there are a lot of variations between the trim levels and would be harder to show in this table

Wow, great job with this list and I really appreciate the time and effort you've put into it. Thanks!

I hope this thread gets the sticky treatment.

Nice update to the list. Here are some other thing I thought of.

Caribbean and SA also have:
1) Leather Knee Pad on Center console.
2) Chrome Garnish on Fog lamps.

If what you mean by phone mirroring is using the HDMI cable, you can do that with any model that has HDMI.

One of the models I think it's India has a separate infotainment system in the rear middle arm rest,

You also forgot the foot Tail gate options from your original list.
