Honda has already teased us with a concept version of its new 2012 CR-V crossover, but now several images have hit the net of what appears to be the production model. Shots of the partially uncovered exterior don’t real much, although several interior images do give a much clearer idea of what to expect when the net generation CR-V goes on sale.
Noticeably absent in these photos is Honda’s new i-MID telematics system, which debuted on the new 2012 Civic. This is, however, a Chinese-market model and we expect the i-MID setup (or something similar) to be offered here.
While the CR-V is expected to grow in size, like the Civic, huge changes for the powertrain aren’t likely, although do expect a bump of a few miles per gallon in fuel economy. Honda has yet to announce any details of the 2012 CR-V’s release date, but look for an LA Auto Show debut.
