2012 Honda CR-V production model with first official photos

2012 Honda CR-V crossover

The 2012 Honda CR-V concept has made numerous appearances at the auto shows, and like many Honda concepts that we’ve seen through the years, it is not surprising that the new crossover production model will stay true to its concept design.

Honda hasn’t kept much secret about the 2012 Honda CR-V model, and today, we got the first batch of official photos on the production model. And from the looks of these photos, nothing much has changed from the concept design either. The only differences that we can tell are the matte finish on the plastic cladding, smaller wheels, and clear headlamps and tail lamps instead of the smoke lights on the concept model.

Honda still maintains the more powerful 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine on the 2012 Honda CR-V crossover for U.S. customers when it arrives at U.S. showrooms in early December, while European customers will get a choice of smaller four-cylinder gasoline and diesel engines when it arrives in the fall of 2012.

With the new 2012 Honda CR-V crossover, Honda has promised that it will be more sophisticated and dynamic than the current model while making it more versatile and modern with a slew of new technologies.

The 2012 Honda CR-V production model will make its debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show in November, and we’ll have more concrete details to you. So stay tuned if you are interested in this model.
