Following the very first official picture that surfaced just a while ago, Autocar has published the first official photo gallery of the new Honda CR-V. The next generation of the Japanese SUV is very similar to the CR-V Concept we had seen back in September, and will be unveiled in its definitive form at the upcoming Los Angeles Auto Show.
The car has been developed on a brand new platform and actually looks quite different from its predecessor. As in the case the new Civic, the new CR-V as well uses different stylistic solutions designed to improve its aerodynamics, in an effort to provide the car with the best possible drag coefficient. The new model retains the typical vertical tail light design of the current model, and should represent a big step forward in terms of habitability, versatility and load capacity.
The engine lineup for the new Honda CR-V remains a mystery at this point. It is reported that the Japanese carmaker really focused on cutting down fuel consumption and CO2 emission levels of the current model, but to know what will pulse under the bonnet of the 2012 CR-V we will have to wait for the LA event.
