2012 Honda CR-V breaks cover at Tokyo Motor Show

The new 2012 Honda CR-V has just launched over in Japan in both 2L and 2.4L versions and as can be seen from the image below, that is not all that’s changed. The most obvious design change will no doubt be its new “hunchback” design that had us believing Honda would be extending the height of the cargo area to make room for a 3rd row. Unfortunately once inside, there is certainly more cubic feet of space but it will still seat five passengers only.

However there is a neat little trick that engineers have added to the 2012 Honda CR-V that will no doubt impress passengers. We’re not going to spoil it for you so just watch the video below to see what we mean.

On a side note,the new Honda CR-V will be upgraded from its 5-speed automatic to a CVT gearbox and both horsepower and torque remain unchanged. Well enough chatter, check out the new 2012 Honda CR-V below.
