Now for the first time, spy shots of a camouflaged test mule of 6th generation Honda CR-V doing test rounds on European roads have appeared on the internet. As evident from the pictures despite some heavy camouflage wrap, the new CR-V will be much biggest than the current 5th gen model with sharper & clean lines, a flat bonnet, sleek headlamps and fascia that seems to have ditched Honda’s current signature solid wing design identity.
The rear end will get an integrated roof spoiler, glass-embedded rear wiper, shark fin antenna and slim horizontally oriented tail lamps. As per information the CR-V will come standard with 3-rows 7-seats configuration which is also available with the current generation model as an option in certain markets. But it will have a much generous space for passengers as well as luggage thanks to increased dimensions. Plus, the images also reveal a large vertically stacked touchscreen in the middle of the dashboard.
