Honda gave a lot of thought to the design of the Honda CR-V and it looks like they decided to get into bed with the Honda Civic. As the Honda Pilot had enjoyed a lot of success, reports were that the CR-V would take on the design of the Pilot. However we have seen spy shots and this hasn’t been the case.
Instead of designing the Honda CR-V after the Honda Pilot it has been designed around the Honda Civic. We saw a test version of the vehicle and it offers up the Civic tail lights, headlights and grille.
It is thought that the Honda CR-V is going to arrive offering the same platform as the Honda Civic too. Should this turn out to be the case then it is possible for it to offer the 1.5 litre VTEC turbocharged engine or perhaps the 1 litre VTEC turbocharged engine.
Of course as the Honda CR-V offers the same design as seen on the Honda Civic it means that the vehicle is given a newer and fresher look and this is something that may attract the younger generation.
