Honda rolls out the CR-V concept as production launch nearsThu, 22 Sep 2011 00:00:00 -0700
Honda on Thursday rolled out the CR-V concept, which previews the redesign for the small crossover. Honda plans to unveil the redesigned 2012 CR-V at the Los Angeles auto show in November and says the car will go on sale by the end of this year.
Honda says the new CR-V will weigh less than the current model and get a more fuel-efficient engine. The interior was redesigned to create more space for passengers and cargo.
Given Honda's history of concept cars, the CR-V concept looks much like the production car that will show up in Los Angeles. The oversized wheels and tires and the dark-colored headlamp lenses likely will go away, but virtually all of what you see here is what Honda dealers will get.
