European CR-V Prototype
Honda will also present the European CR-V Prototype, a preview model highlighting the exterior styling direction of the all-new fourth generation European Honda CR-V, which is set to go on sale in Autumn 2012. Compared to the previous generation, the model takes on a more aggressive stance with deeper sculpting of the body lines and a bolder front fascia. The lower front bumper wraps smartly upward to convey SUV capability, while the lower front bumper design now integrates more smoothly into the fascia for improved aerodynamics.
Earth Dreams Technology - new 1.6 litre diesel engine
Honda's Earth Dreams Technology, a new generation engine series, will deliver excellent performance and environmental values and is due to be introduced throughout the Honda product range.

The lightest engine in its class, delivering sub 100g/km CO2 levels, the engine will offer a class-leading balance of fuel economy and performance. A cut engine display of the new 1.6 litre diesel engine will be shown on the Honda stand.
