The 2015 CR-V gets a mid-life refresh which includes mild tweaks in terms of styling and a new diesel engine.

The fuel-economy of the engine in both the power-tunes has not been confirmed.
In terms of style, the new CR-V gets a new headlamp cluster, new front grille, fog lights, skid-plate and bumper. At the rear, additions include new LED tail-lamps, new tailgate design and rear-bumper.

The Honda CR-V has been in the market for not so long, the present model was launched in India in 2013 and Honda has decided to give it facelift already. The news has been confirmed by the spy shots clicked by the automobile enthusiasts. The photos were clicked somewhere in south Europe and have stirred a huge amount of interest in the fans. The car has been a favourite for many and the new facelift can be a treat for the group.
The 2016 Honda CR-V Facelift’s under testing model had a camouflage in the front and at the back hiding some of the details about the design but some information can be sought from them, mainly the slimmer profile.
The facelift will have mild tweaks in the looks departments with revised headlights, modified front and rear bumpers, a different shape of the fog lamps, repositioned reflectors etc. The changes at the rear of the SUV are more subtle, the biggest change seems to the new bumper. The front grille earlier had three horizontal strips which are replaced by two unsymmetrical bars in the new version. The side profile seems untouched while the circular fog lamps have been replaced by the rectangle shaped ones. It will be powered by 4-cylinder petrol and diesel engines. A rise in price is also not expected but the car will not be seen in the markets before the middle of 2015. So the new car will be presented as the 2016 model.
An even smaller SUV, the HR-V is also set to be launched by the Japanese car maker for international markets; it will be launched at the Paris Motor Show in October 2014.
Stay tuned for more information on the 2016 Honda CR-V.
