The 2012 Honda CR-V went on sale last month, and in case you weren't sure what to do with yours, two new ads want you to know that the $22,295 crossover is for getting your overdue dreams accomplished before 'settling down.' And that's not just some dreams, that's all of them, from seeing the Northern Lights to making a movie to lugging around a homemade, fighting robot. Presumably you can then put the same, robot-scarred vehicle into service for bride and baby.

You'll find the spots after the jump, and perhaps they'll give you some ideas.

        Give me a "boring" SUV anyday over the way overstyled and "trendy" crap coming from Hyundai.

          Grow up campanale, lots of people don't like Hyundais.

          Yep, any CR-V ever built still looks pretty good...the Tuscon already looks dated.

      It's so nice to see that the Pontiac Aztec still has a place in today's new car market.

      Very nice and clean design. Looks German in fact.

      I am already seeing a bunch on the road, so they are definitely selling. I saw a white one on Sunday and it looked pretty good.

          You have not seen one, so that means you have also not driven one, yet you are 'looking to purchase' one? Sad commentary on how you select a vehicle.

      People, stop hating on this car. No , this is not an enthusiast's car. If you want an enthusiast's car that can fit the family, get a Tiguan or CX5 and be happy with your reduced space, or get a 328i wagon and spend $15 k more. That is not the point of this car. It is supposed to be the quintessential Small SUV, a jack of all trades, and in that regard it does it's job well. It is not extremely good at one thing, but pretty good at almost everything. It balances practicality, space, quality, technology, gets good mileage, has decent power, is fairly comfortable for long trips, and won't cost you a fortune. Yes, it doesn't look all that great and isn't exactly a BMW in terms of driving dynamics, but it gets it's job done well. Best small SUV on the market, at least till the Escape gets here.

      Wow, those are some seriously bad commercials. What is Autoblog posting about Honda commercials? Is their ad agency bribing people AGAIN? Yep, I said "again" alright...

      Looks like a nice car but the RAV 4 has always beaten all the SUVs in this segment and it will be the same for 2012. And when you add the V-6 to the RAV, which you can't do with the CR-V, you have a very fast little SUV that is loads of fun to drive.

        The CR-V outsells the RAV4, not to mention the RAV4 is a piece of garbage.

          It is my opinion that the RAV4 is a POS, based on having had the misfortune of driving them as rental cars. Like all Toyota products, it's flimsily built, rattles like mad, has terrible shift programming, has no steering feel, and is ugly as sin inside an out. You don't have to agree...

        I agree. If I was looking for a car in this segment I would definitly wait for the next Rav-4 before I spent my money. The Rav-4 has won multiple times not to mention the fastest and best handling in its class to boot. The current model in Sport V6 or Limited is a great little SUV... looks good too.

      'Bland and boring' is just the tip of the iceberg for that thing.... And same odd turn-up in bumper cover at headlights as-is on Civic failure.

      Have to now admit this new one looks much better in-person than I was expecting. It will sell better than the last model.
