2012 Honda CRV styling will need to abandon the impassive look of the third-generation CR-V and become more expressive if Honda wants it to appear fashionable next to flamboyant newcomers like the recently redesigned 2011 Hyundai Tucson and 2011 Kia Sportage and also the all-new 2012 Ford Escape. Most CR-Vs sold in the U.S. are assembled at Hondas plant in Ohio, but this crossover is marketed in certain 160 countries and also the fourth-generations styling is likely to take inspiration from the animated shapes of Hondas bought from Asia and europe.
2012 Honda CRV would be knowing not sacrifice interior roominess in the name of swoopy styling, however. It shouldnt abandon the packaging acumen it demonstrated with the 2007-2011 CR-V, which had mid-pack exterior dimensions but an airy cabin along with a cargo area that were among the most spacious in the class. By sharing Civics platform, the 2012 Honda CRV continues to qualify as a crossover. Crossovers combine an elevated, SUV-like body having a car-type understructure. This one piece unibody construction is within contrast to pickups and older-style SUVs that employ truck-type engineering in which the body is mounted on another frame. Unibody design isnt as suitable for heavy duty hauling, but its lighter in weight benefits ride, handling, and fuel consumption rate. Observe that the Acura RDX compact crossover from Hondas premium division also shares 2012 Honda CRVs basic unibody structure, though it has different styling along with a stronger engine.
EPA fuel-economy ratings for 2012 Honda CRV models had not been released in time with this review, but Honda will make an effort to improve upon already laudable ratings for that next-generation CR-V. To again be one of the best-in-class, the 2012 Honda CRV would want ratings of around 23 31 mpg city highway.
Whether or not they reach or exceed those numbers, expect the 2012 Honda CRV fuel-economy ratings to top the ones from the outgoing model, which was rated at 21/28 mpg city/highway with front-wheel drive, 21/27 with AWD.
Prices for that 2012 Honda CR-V won’t be announced until shortly before the model continues sale. But the CR-V traditionally continues to be priced at top of the end of their category, an aggressive set which includes the likes of the Ford Escape and Toyota RAV-4 but is a tier below premium compact crossovers like the Audi Q5 and Mercedes-Benz GLK.
