If you live in Europe and are in the market for a decent, no-trilles crossover for the whole family in the €20-25,000 price range, you should definitely hold on to your hard-earned money, because the new CR-V is coming and it’s a looker.
The bad news is that’s it’s not completely ready yet. The car we’re showing you is the pre-production prototype. We can pretty much guarantee that the body will stay unchanged, but Honda still needs to put the final touches on the interior and figure out what equipment levels to build in order to make it competitive.

Honda says the new CR-V will go on sale in Europe in the Autumn of 2012, which means a full reveal, with the engine range and everything is just months away.

The new CR-V has been redesigned to be more economical and offer more space inside. It’s already available in Japan and the US market, but this European version has a different bumper.

The engine range will include the usual 2.0-liter petrol and a revised 2.2-liter diesel that’s much more efficient than before. Honda also has a new 1.6-liter diesel with 120, built for economy and to compete with Nissan.
