They were created recently by graphics manipulator Remco Meulendijk based on the same spy images we’ve been sharing with you guys. Honda’s popular SUV will receive a number of front bumper with trapezoidal fog lights, LED accents and a new grille design.
Some of these changes serve aerodynamic purposes and will help lower fuel consumption on the updated CR-V. Honda made similar updates to the old Civic hatchback back in 2010. The design is also similar to that of the new HR-V, a small crossover which the company plans to launch soon.
Around the back, the 2015 CR-V will have a Fit/Jazz-like lower bumper and some revised taillight graphics. We also expect the choice of colors and wheels to be enhanced as well.
Despite strong competition, the CR-V remains one of the most popular cars in its segment. Honda will probably work towards improving fuel economy and is expected to introduce the latest Earth Dreams engines, to be shared with the Civic. 2016 Honda CR-V Redesign and Release Date
