Honda has unveiled the all-new CR-V and the car is expected to be launched in the coming months. The car boasts new styling, new interiors, and a first-ever turbocharged engine for a CR-V along with a host of new features and technologies.
The first thing that you’ll notice about the new CR-V is the refreshed styling that the car gets. After all, Honda raised the bar really high with the styling of the new tenth generation Civic hatchback and the Civic Type-R unveiled last month.

The CR-V LX trims will be powered by a 2.4-liter DOHC, direct-injected i-VTEC engine, and both engines will be mated to a continuously variable transmission (CVT) with Honda G-Shift control logic.
