The fourth generation Honda CR-V has been introduced in production form at the 2011 Los Angeles Auto Show.
This new generation which sports little differences when compared to the concept upon which it is based, go on sale in the United States on December 15th, while the rest of the world’s markets will receive it in 2012.
The new 2012 Honda CR-V measures 178.5 inches in length, 71.6 inches in width and 65.1 inches in height, rides on a wheelbase that is 103.1 inches long and insides its cabin there’s room for 5 adults, who will be able to sit more comfortably and who will also be able to load more luggage due to the increase in headroom and thanks to the bigger bot.
In terms of styling we could say the new CR-V looks slightly more aggressive than its predecessor, while under the bonnet the 2.4-litre i-VTEC four-cylinder engine has been revised and it not produces 185 HP ans 163 lb-ft of torque via a 5-speed gearbox which comes as standard.
Apart from the tiny increase in performance (+5 HP and +2lb-ft of torque), the 2012 Honda CR-V is also a bit more efficient as it returns 23 mpg city/ 31 mpg highway in the FWD configuration and 22 city and 25 highway in the AWD version.
This newly added AWD option is paired with an Intelligent Control system. 
Pricing details regarding the 2012 Honda CR-V should be announced in the upcoming weeks.
