Model SUV the fourth generation 2012 Honda CR-V goes on sale in the United States on December 15 after launched at 2011 Los Angeles Auto Show. Like its predecessors the 2012 Honda CR-V
will continues with five-seater, but Honda says the debutant introduces an upscale styling direction, improved interior comfort, a smoother and quieter ride, greater fuel efficiency and added features and functionality over the outgoing model.
In the usual tradition, the 2012 Honda CR-V is powered by a 2.4 liter i-VTEC four-cylinder engine with 185 hp (138 kW / 188 PS) and 163 lb-ft (221 Nm) of torque (up 5HP and 2 lb-ft over the previous engine). The CR-V comes standard with a five-speed automatic transmission. Leading the changes are a more efficient engine design with improved horsepower and torque, along with an all-new Real Time All-Wheel-Drive (AWD) with Intelligent Control System.
Inside, the interior features a roomy new centre console and an overall lower cargo floor height for easy loading and unloading, among others. The 2012 Honda CR-V also comes standard with Honda’s Bluetooth HandsFreeLink interface, which was previously an option on the outgoing model. Additionally, a full-color infotainment display with multi-angle rearview cameras also comes standard. New technologies include a Pandora internet radio interface, an SMS text reading and response function through the new intelligent Multi-Information Display (i-MID) on models equipped with Honda’s navigation system.
Honda claims it will be between $21,000 and $30,000, but we will wait showrooms later this year in December.
