The North American-spec 2012 Honda CR-V won't officially debut until the Los Angeles Auto Show in just a couple of weeks, but thanks to the automaker's own Japanese website, we're now getting our first glimpse at the production version of the new crossover – at least the JDM version, which isn't expected to differ much. Honda previously teased us with a shot of a CR-V Concept, which, flashy as it may have been, gave us a good idea of exactly what the final design would look like.

In addition to the CUV's decidedly predictable exterior, Honda's Japanese site gives us a sneak peak inside the CR-V, where things don't appear to change all that much from the current model. Under the hood, Honda will continue to employ its 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine, though a new six-speed automatic transmission is expected to be on tap for 2012, which should aid fuel economy and performance.

We'll have the full details on the new CR-V in the not-too-distant future, but in the meantime, see it for yourself over on Honda's Japanese site to get a glimpse at what's to come.

        You know that your comments are largely just the same things for different companies. There is a terrible culture of badge focus going on here - which you are largely an active and enthusiastic participant in, might I add - that frequently ignores everything but what's glued to the hood. If you like the badge, the company can do no wrong. If you dislike it, they can do no right. It's really annoying, nobody even bothers being objective.

      I wonder who makes the decision at Honda? For the last 10 years, Honda has been a disappointment. First came the Element followed by the Ridgeline, Hybrid Civic, Hybrid Accord, Insight, CR-Z, 2012 Civic and now this CRV. It seems that whoever is in charge wants to run Honda to the ground.

      Hideous! The designers were under the influence of something weird.
