Could this be the all-new Honda CR-V?

It is not a secret that a next-generation version of the Honda CR-V is bound to arrive soon. This is backed by the new leaked images of what appears to be the 2023 CR-V. The images were published by the Chinese government’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) on its official website.

With that being said, the model shown in the images will likely be sold in China. Meanwhile, the official global model of the compact crossover could still differ depending on the market. This is the same case as the MIIT’s leaked images of the 11th-gen Honda Civic posted before the sedan’s official launch.

The all-new Honda CR-V is 4,703mm long, 1,866mm wide, and 1,680mm tall, with a wheelbase rated at 2,701mm. Compared to the current model, the upcoming crossover SUV has been extended in length which could provide a roomier cabin, confirming our previous report that it will be slightly larger moving forward.

Design-wise, the front fascia gets the most significant change. It now looks similar to the ones found in the new Honda models such as the HR-V and BR-V. The roofline is designed with a straighter orientation, creating a more SUV-like appearance. And as for the rear end, it comes with a twin-exhaust finish and redesigned L-shaped taillights.

Powering the Chinese-spec CR-V is a 1.5-liter turbo gasoline engine produced by Dongfeng Honda Automobile Co., Ltd., capable of delivering 192 horsepower. It is connected to a continuously variable transmission (CVT) which sends power to either the front wheels or all wheels via an all-wheel-drive (AWD) system.

As of this writing, Honda hasn’t put out an official announcement regarding the specs and details of the 2023 CR-V. But following the timeline of the posting of MIIT’s 11th-gen Civic leaked images, the launch of the next-gen Honda crossover should be around the corner.
