2012 Honda CR-V: First Official Photos

Industry News

These photos are hot off the press, giving us a sneak peak of the CR-V before its debuts at next month’s LA and Tokyo Motor Shows.

We've seen the concept and spied it being tested in southern Europe, but now we have the first official images of the 2012 Honda CR-V in all its final production glory. Aside from these snaps that were posted on the automaker's Japanese website, which show certain styling changes from the concept CR-V, most notably its smaller, sharper wheels, production-orientated bumpers, and clear graphics on the head & tail lamps, we don't have much to share in terms of the technical upgrades.

However, we do know that the U.S. versions will have a 2.4- and 2.5-liter engine on offer, and the European market will have the economical 2.2-liter diesel. Following its debut at the LA Auto Show in mid-November, it shouldn't be long before the JDM version reaches U.S. showrooms, which is set to debut at the Tokyo Motor Show at the end of November. Unfortunately, Europeans will have to wait another year before they can get behind the wheel of the new generation CR-V.
