In the spring, Honda brought a prototype of the new generation CR-V crossover to road tests. The car is expected to debut no earlier than 2022. Despite the presence of dense camouflage, the published images allow us to discern some of the features of the Japanese crossover.
The current version of the crossover
First of all, the general silhouette of the front end of the body shows that visually the new generation Honda CR-V will be similar to the recently debuted HR-V. In particular, some similarities between the models are emphasized by a large radiator grille with small lamellas (photo: motor1.com). But for the CR-V it is painted black, while for the HR-V it is silver. The similarities between the models are underlined by the rounded front end, on which Honda has placed narrow LED lights divided into 2 segments.

The bumper below contains a long air intake. Side vents probably won't appear on the new Honda CR-V. The exterior mirrors on the Japanese model have been moved lower to give the vehicle a more mature look. The feed of the presented Honda CR-V turned out to be larger than that of the current version of the crossover. This design solution gives the car a more angular look.
No information has been received from the manufacturer about the technical part of the novelty. But in the pictures you can see the presence of exhaust pipes built into the rear bumper. They indicate that the new-generation Honda CR-V will retain its internal combustion engine, although the Japanese company previously announced a swift transition from its European lineup to electric motors. Perhaps the future crossover will be equipped with a hybrid power plant. The elongated stern also indirectly indicates that the new generation Honda CR-V may come in a 7-seater version.
