Hello there, are you the new Honda CR-V?

Spy shots have been popping up all over the internet in the past few months of Honda’s CR-V replacement and while the picture you see above was considered a concept model that most probably wouldn’t make it to production, Honda has confirmed that what you see in the picture is indeed the real deal.

Spotting a similar front fascia to the Honda Accord and a slightly larger rump at the back, the CR-V is easily distinguishable from the model it’s going to be replace.

And while it might look like a slightly jazzed-up with its showy jumbo wheels, smoked headlamps, tinted windows and high-gloss lower body cladding, expect most of them to be removed when it comes down to the final product rolling off the lines in Japan.

Mechanically, the new crossover is expected to pick up where the outgoing model leaves off, but with a few important changes.

Though the 2.4-liter engine – driving either the front wheels or optionally all four – could get a slight adjustment in output and efficiency, it is tipped to ditch its five-speeder for a new six-speed automatic gearbox.

The new model looks slightly longer as well which could mean extra seats at the back to make for seven-person capacity seating.

Somehow the exterior isn’t really much to write home about – looking almost identical to the current model. I’m just hoping for Honda’s sake they’ve got an impressive interior or features to wow both their old and new customers with since they’ve decided to go safe on the looks.
