Honda CR-V gets sleek new look for 2012

The Honda CR-V has been one of the most popular SUVs over the last several years, but the manufacturer is set to unveil a new design. The fourth-generation CR-V is set to go on sale in the United States later this year and will feature a bold look.

Known as the CR-V Concept, the new model will focus more on deeper sculpting of the body lines, along with a bolder approach in the front fascia. Additionally, its front bumper will be complemented by a three-bar grille and deeply-set headlights.

"Long considered the benchmark for packaging and user-friendly design in the small SUV segment, the all-new CR-V will offer an added dimension of style, amazing interior versatility and Honda's latest technologies for convenience and refinement," said John Mendel, executive vice president of sales for American Honda.

Of course it's not just all about aesthetic, either. The company announced that the 2012 model will also include a more fuel-efficient engine.

Drivers who are looking to get behind the wheel of a used Honda may want to look into New Jersey Auto Auction, which offers a variety of models at affordable prices.
