The 2016 Honda CR-V will be released sometime next year, though the exact date is still unknown. The changes on the future model are big and delightful, even though they do not represent a full-scale redesign. It is as if the manufacturer decided to refresh each element of the car and during it, got carried away. The new model will be excellent, even better than the current one, if possible. It will have a new refreshed exterior which will be bold and very modern. The interior will be redesigned too, and even though there are no reports on how it will look like, rumors say that it will be more cozy and comfortable than before. In addition, the 2016 CR-V will have an extended engine lineup which will offer different choices depending on the market. Either way, both European model and U.S. model will have an excellent array of units to choose from. To top all that up, the new model will have improved handling, agility and performance, so there is really nothing we can complain about. The only thing we do not understand is why did Honda go through some much work to improve this model to such extent if they announced the next generation of the CR-V for 2017 model year? The 2017 Honda CR-V will be released in mid 2017, and it will represent a full-scale redesign and, hence, a new generation.
2016 Honda CR-V Appearance
As for the appearance, the new 2016 Honda CR-V will look amazing, as always. The new model will be refreshed, with a new front fascia, redesigned bumpers and new fog lights. It will resemble Honda Fit a bit, but it will keep its dominant and calm exterior. The new model will also feature a new grille and a dashing pair of headlights, which will contribute to a bold and compact front look. Looking at it from aside, the model won’t look much different, and it will probably keep its dimensions the same. However, the 2016 CR-V is said to offer more space and comfort than the current model. It will also have a restyled cabin which will be fully equipped using only the latest technology gadgets. In the end, the new model will receive a new upgraded suspension, which will improve its handling, stability, precision and agility. To sum all this up, the new 2016 Honda CR-V will be an amazing-looking vehicle which will be both comfortable and fun to drive.

The rumors say they will be a three-cylinder and a four-cylinder turbocharged engines which will have excellent performance. The base engine for the new model will most likely be a 1.5-liter VTEC turbo unit capable of producing 200 horsepower. In addition, the 2016 CR-V might get a brand new twin-clutch transmission which will improve its fuel economy and performance.
