In June, Honda had announced that it would present a new generation of its popular compact crossover model; however, the Japanese company had not disclosed any specific details on the vehicle other than it would sport a "new design inside and out, new features and new possibilities".
As with the recent Civic concepts, the CR-V show car seen here is very close to the actual production model. Just don't expect to see the concept's more dramatic elements such as the dark headlamp crystals, small exterior mirrors, large alloy wheels and the contrasting lower trim in a black finish.
The inner works of the fourth-generation CR-V remain a mystery for now though it's a pretty safe bet to assume that it will be offered with both front- and four-wheel drive configurations, as well as four-cylinder gasoline engine (in North America) linked to a six-speed automatic transmission.
We’ll have more comprehensive details on the 2012 Honda CR-V in the next few days.
