It was first reported that the new Honda Pilot design was also going to be the base design for the Honda CR-V but that was before the Honda Civic model was release. Spies have already spotted the Honda CR-V test mule and it is now clear that the Civic design will be making its way to the Honda CR-V.
The spy shots revealed some of the Civic features that will be making it over to the Honda CR-V including the headlights, taillights as well as the grille. It has also been reported that the Honda CR-V will be riding on the same Honda Civic platform.
If that is the case, the Honda CR-V will most likely be coming in with the same Civic engine which will include the 1.5 liter VTEC Turbo engine as well as the 2.0 liter VTEC Turbo engine. The Civic like design on the CR-V should give the CR-V a younger vibe.
