These spy shots
from WorldCarFans give us the best idea yet of what the next Honda CR-V
will look like when it launches next year. Sister ute to the Acura RDX
, the next CR-V
will not get the new Acura's
turbocharged engine, but rather a more meager naturally aspirated 2.4L four-cylinder rated at 170 hp. That also means the CR-V won't be hunting any Toyota
RAV-4s with their (much) larger V6 engines and third row of seats. Some good news is that this new Honda
ditches the outside mounted spare and thus gets a vertical lift gate instead the traditional horizontal one.
