Honda CR-V 2012 revealed at Los Angeles Auto Show
The fully-redesigned 2012 Honda CR-V has finally been unveiled at the 2011 Los Angeles Auto Show. While it looks very different inside and out, the mechanicals underneath are only mildly updated.
The 2012 CR-V is powered by an updated 2.4-litre “i-VTEC” 4-cylinder engine, now making 185 hp and 221 Nm of torque, mated to a carryover 5-speed automatic and a choice of front-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive.
The interior has apparently been improved, with a different layout, quick-stow rear seats and slightly-less hard plastics. The American version also gets standard Bluetooth, a multi-angle rearview camera, optional navigation and a full-colour information display, as well as the ability to receive SMS text messaging capability, which reads incoming text messages over the audio system. Honda also expects 5-star crash test ratings.
Expect the all-new CR-V to reach Saudi Arabia, UAE, Qatar and other GCC countries by next summer.
