Honda Announces 2012 CR-V Concept

Tuesday, July 26, 2011

An online leak resulted to a photo of Honda's 2012 CR-V Concept appearing on the internet earlier today, but now the Japanese carmaker has given in and released a high-resolution image as well as initial information on the crossover model.

Honda said that the concept will make its first public outing at the Orange County International Auto Show in Anaheim, California, in September 2011, and go on sale in North America by the end of the year, and in Europe in Autumn 2012. This means we will probably see the final production model at the Los Angeles Auto Show in November.
It's pretty much clear that the 2012 CR-V Concept is more of a pre-production model with some fancy trim like the smoked out headlamps and glossy black moldings than a pure study.
"The 2012 CR-V Concept introduces the exterior styling for the more sophisticated and dynamic design of the upcoming production model," said John Mendel, executive vice president of sales for American Honda.
"Long considered the benchmark for packaging and user-friendly design in the small SUV segment, the all-new CR-V will offer an added dimension of style, amazing interior versatility and Honda's latest technologies for convenience and refinement," he added.
Though we only get a glimpse of the rear end, Honda said that the current model's signature vertical rear taillights remain for 2012 with "a more three-dimensional style that wraps further into the design of the vehicle".
The Japanese automaker added that the latest CR-V will also feature an "all-new interior with a more accommodating and spacious design with a lower cargo floor", "a more fuel-efficient engine" and "reduced body weight" without getting into any further details.
Aside from a gasoline engine with a smaller displacement than its North American counterpart, the European version will also be available with a more frugal turbo diesel unit.
