Honda previews new 2012 CR-VMon, 25 Jul 2011
Honda is injecting a fresh attitude--and buffer body--into the 2012 CR-V set to go on sale later this year.
The company released a photo of a concept that features bolder headlights, a three-bar grille and more pronounced flowing lines. There are also five-spoke alloy wheels and bolder fender flares.
Honda didn't reveal specifics, but the next iteration of the CR-V will get a new interior with more room, a more fuel-efficient engine and a reduced curb weight.
“The 2012 CR-V concept introduces the exterior styling for the more sophisticated and dynamic design of the upcoming production model,” John Mendel, executive vice president of sales for American Honda, said in a statement.
The CR-V remains a strong seller for Honda, and sales are up 28 percent this year through June, tallying 110,916 units.
