Honda Pulls Wrap Off 5th-Generation CR-V

New CUV could replace Accord, Civic as brand’s best-seller.

by on Oct.13, 2016

The 2017 Honda CR-V is just slightly longer outside but a lot roomier inside.

It’s bigger, roomier, more powerful, though we’ll have to wait to see just how much more fuel-efficient the 2017 Honda CR-V will be than the outgoing crossover-utility vehicle.

Honda offered a sneak peek at the new crossover during a media briefing at Detroit’s Eastern Market and while there were plenty of things to focus on, one of the most significant was the return of the volume knob to the instrument panel, a concession that not all buyers are enamored of the new touchscreen technologies sweeping through the auto industry.


That small detail is likely to enhance the appeal of what has already become one of Honda’s most popular products, the new 2017 CR-V set to roll out of three separate plants in the U.S. and Canada. It is, in fact, very likely set to become the best-selling model in the entire Honda U.S. line-up.


First Look: 2012 Honda CR-V

Updated cute-ute delayed by Japanese shortages.

A new look for the 2012 Honda CR-V.

Honda’s “cute-ute” is getting a new look.  The ever-popular CR-V will take a distinctly different design direction when it makes its debut in the U.S. market by the end of the year, the company has revealed with the first formal shot of the fourth-generation crossover-utility vehicle.

Routinely a best-seller in the compact crossover market, the 2012 Honda CR-V will feature a more buff and sculpted appearance, with less visual emphasis on the cute and more on the ute.  Overall, the image suggests a slightly larger vehicle with headlights more smoothly integrated into the fenders and a new take on the three-bar grille.

The higher bumper and built-in skid plate would suggest Honda has integrated some SUV-like off-road capabilities.

Officially declared a “concept,” the photo is expected to be quite close to the look of the actual 2012 Honda CR-V, the third best-selling product line for American Honda, so a critical addition to the line-up.  And a much-delayed one, the launch pushed back due to the problems created by the March 11 Japanese earthquake and tsunami.  The 2012 CR-V was originally expected closer to the launch of the upcoming model-year.
