New Spy Shots! 2012 Honda CR-V!

Close-up: 2012 Honda CR-V!!

Honda has been doing a good job of hiding the next-generation CR-V, but today, we've finally gotten close up to a lightly disguised prototype!

The biggest changes appear to be at the rear, where Honda almost looks to be taking a page from the Volvo design handbook. It's possible that the extra space in the back is making room for a 3rd row. There seems to be some significant changes up front as well.

The 2.4L four-cylinder VTEC motor should continue to be the only choice. Though we expect it to get a modest bump over the current 180hp, as well as a modest gains in fuel economy.

While the earthquake in Japan has delayed the start of production by about a month, expect the new CR-V to start rolling down the assembly line in Ohio, as well as Alliston, Ontario, in late Fall of this year.

These photos are pretty timely, as just this past week John Mendel sent out a memo to Honda's sales arm stating that production for the 2012 CR-V will commence in November. This came along with an announcement that most of Honda's factories will resume normal production in August. And finally, check back here on July 25th, as Mendel's memo also mentioned that Honda will be releasing an image of the 2012 CR-V Concept on that date.
