The all-new, the fourth-generation 2012 Honda CR-V moves in an upscale styling direction, with greater fuel efficiency, plus added features and functionality.

The 2012 CR-V is compact on the outside and roomy inside, and is the ideal balance of size and capability in the entry SUV segment. The five-passenger Honda CR-V offers improved car-like interior comfort, a smoother and quieter ride, and even more innovative features than the previous model.

Leading the changes are a more efficient engine design with improved horsepower and torque, along with an all-new Real Time All-Wheel-Drive with Intelligent Control System. All CR-Vs are powered by a 2.4-liter i-VTEC 4-cylinder engine with 185 horsepower and 163 lb-ft. of torque paired with a standard 5-speed automatic transmission.

Eco Assist, a new feature on the CR-V for 2012, indicates to the driver when the vehicle is being operated in an efficient style via "green" visual cues surrounding the speedometer, and a selectable ECON Mode alters operating characteristics of the vehicle to support an efficient driving style.

New for 2012 standard features include an Easy Fold-Down 60/40 Split Rear Seat and a range of standard technology features. New high-tech features on all models include a Bluetooth HandsFreeLink phone interface, a full-color intelligent Multi-Information Display and a multi-angle rearview camera with guidelines.

The 2012 CR-V body adopts a more dynamic and sophisticated appearance compared to the previous generation. The spacious interior layout is more accommodating with a roomy new center console and an overall lower cargo floor height for easy loading and unloading. Each side of the rear seat can fold nearly flat into the front of the cargo area.
