We don’t know if the teaser for the 2012 Honda CR-V is the JDM version or not because as you can see on the photos, the teaser has Japanese writings on it. We all know that the Japanese automaker has already launching the Civic hatchback for the European market, and they are pretty much gain success from the sedan selling on the US market. So, based on those considerations, we think it is very possible if the 2012 CR-V SUV chooses the JDM as its first market. Now, what does the 2012 Honda CR-V have and what differences if we compare to the early leaked design photos?
The official teaser images for the 2012 Honda CR-V have been shared on the Honda’s website which explains the Japanese writings on the photos. The basic idea of the teaser is presenting the 2012 CR-V SUV in set of sharper wheels, oriented bumpers, and one thing for sure is that the upcoming CR-V is virtually shares the identical design to its concept model.
If you just can’t wait to see the real deal of 2012 Honda CR-V, you can visit Tokyo Auto Show next year. Shows up at the Tokyo auto event means the 2012 CR-V SUV could be ready for US market soon after the event. For the European market, the Japanese automaker has scheduled the SUV to be marketed in one more year.
Since it is series of teaser images, meaning that we don’t get the technical details on the 2012 Honda CR-V. But, just to give you little hint, the US version of CR-V will be using the same-old 2.4L engine and offers new 2.5L engine. As for the European market, there is a big possibility that the next-generation of CR-V SUV will be powered by the 2.2L diesel which is the first engine debut for the CR-V.
