LA 2011: 2012 Honda CR-V Cruises into Cali

Honda’s fourth generation CR-V has just made its debut at the 2011 LA Auto Show.

The 2012 Honda CR-V is set to make its way into dealerships on December 15th and the Japanese automaker found the perfect way to debut their popular crossover: at the 2011 Los Angeles Auto Show. The new CR-V will be powered by the company's 2.4-liter i-VTEC 4-cyldiner engine. Outputs of 185hp and 163lb-ft of torque give the 2012 model a tad bit more power than the 2011 crossover. The engine is paired to Honda's five-speed automatic transmission.

The fuel-efficient engine should, in front-wheel-drive configuration, return 31mpg highway and 23mpg in the city. The all-wheel-drive configuration should return slightly less mileage, claimed to be 30mpg highway and 22mpg in the city. The new model, in addition to brand-new sheetmetal, will be equipped with an upgraded interior and many more standard features from previous models. Standard features now include a multi-angle rearview camera for additional safety, SMS-reading capable audio system and Bluetooth HandsFreeLink. A Pandora radio system is also included to mix up the variety of music on your commutes to and from work.
