Honda set to debut 2012 CR-V fourth generation

Honda recently debuted a “concept” of its popular CR-V SUV, the fourth edition of which will be officially unveiled Sept. 22 at the Orange Country (California) International Auto Show and available at U.S. dealers by the end of the year.

The 2012 Honda CR-V will feature a more aggressive design, sculptured body lines and a bolder front with thick three-bar grill and deeply-set headlamps.

The vertical rear taillights of previous CR-V models have also been embedded deeper into the design of the vehicle, with a more three-dimensional style – although this is a concept vehicle, previous models have proved almost identical to their production counterparts upon release.

Along with improved aerodynamics, the new model features a more fuel-efficient engine and is lighter than its predecessors, although exact figures haven’t yet been released.

Sold globally, the Honda CR-V was the best-selling SUV in the United States between 2007-2010.
