Honda is believed to be working on a new so-called Honda ZR-V that could be specifically aimed at some Asian markets and replace the current version of the CR-V.
Supposed to be a compact SUV, the new ZR-V is also expected to make its way to European markets, albeit for the time being, no timing specifics are available.

And while a successor to the CR-V launching in the coming years is something that everybody can see coming, nobody knows exactly what the ZR-V will end up looking, especially because right now, all the information comes through unofficial channels.

But a pair of renderings published by automotive artist Kleber Silva on Behance imagines this new Honda ZR-V, and by the looks of things, there are both parts that pretty much make sense and also details that you really didn’t expect.

The renderings, which suggest the Honda ZR-V could land for model year 2022, point to a typical Honda front fascia but with a surprising “secret”: the car is based on the Chinese Changan Uni-T, and the back is the most obvious indication in this regard.

A Honda model based on a Chinese car might not be the best news for everybody, but on the other hand, it’s also not a secret that the Changan Uni-T actually looks pretty good. If anything, it’s one of the most handsome Chinese cars right now, so a potential Honda ZR-V that would adopt its styling wouldn’t necessarily be the end of the world.

Needless to say, it’s important to remind everything this is just a rendering and there’s still no confirmation that it is the way the Honda ZR-V is supposed to look. To be completely honest, we don’t think too many people would hate the ZR-V if this is the design that Honda is planning for the CR-V successor.
