2012 Honda CR-V Concept: First Look

Our early take? The next CR-V looks much more aggressive than the outgoing one, and the changes are definitely more significant than the recently redesigned Civic sedan and coupe.

The grille looks like a smaller version of the Accord Crosstour’s, but the rising headlights offer unique styling that’s not quite as off-putting as the Crosstour’s look.

Honda says vertical taillights will remain part of the rear design and that the interior will be more spacious with a lower cargo floor. 

The company also said the 2012 will be lighter and have a more efficient engine.

While it may look larger in this picture, the next CR-V will likely remain a two-row vehicle leaving the Pilot and Odyssey minivan as the company’s only three options.

What do you think of the new CR-V? Tell us in the comment section below.
