All-new Honda CR-V in the works

Several media outlets have already started hinting at a sixth-generation Honda CR-V that could arrive later this year or next year. These reports have been strongly motivated by the several spy shots of the supposed new model which have been circulating online. 

While we can’t publish the unconfirmed spy photos, it is worth noting that the renowned compact crossover might have grown in terms of size, allowing it to accommodate third-row seats. It also seems that Honda is targeting competition against the all-new Mitsubishi Outlander, which is currently hailed as the longest compact crossover today. With that said, the upcoming CR-V should remain as one of the most spacious in its class. 

The sixth-generation Honda CR-V may also incorporate several design cues from its stablemates, including the all-new HR-VCivic prototype, and the midsize Accord

What’s a bit unknown though is if the compact crossover will continue to sport its vertical taillights, a design element that pays homage to its predecessors.

Some of the spy shots even provide a slight exposure of the interior. It’s even got a floating-type infotainment that comes with a physical volume knob, if our observations are right. This is a familiar design element, as seen applied on the all-new HR-V. Presumably, the all-new Honda CR-V could possibly have an HR-V-inspired dashboard.

Powertrain options of the upcoming model are likewise still unknown as of now. Honda could possibly retain the same set of engine options per market. Currently, a 1.5-liter turbocharged gasoline and a Hybrid option are made available in select countries. The Philippine market, on the other hand, gets a 1.6-liter turbo diesel option and the entry-level 2.0-liter gasoline motor. Perhaps, the Japanese automaker will uncover further information with specific details  on the powertrain in the months to come.  

Again, the sixth-generation Honda CR-V could possibly debut within 2021 or perhaps next year. Hopefully, we’ll be able to obtain additional information on  the upcoming model in the succeeding months. So keep your eyes peeled for more updates.
