The facelifted Honda CR-V has been spotted testing months out from its official reveal.
Drive photographers spotted the diminutive SUV undergoing hot weather testing in the US.
As the photographs show, the mid-cycle refresh of the fourth-generation model will be headlined by cosmetic updates to the front fascia, including as revised headlights, grille and a different bumper.
The test mule photographed also wore camouflage around the rear taillights, boot door and lower rear bumper area as well. The side profile of the facelifted CR-V is expected to be unchanged from the current model.
The prototype’s interior is covered inside, meaning possible changes from the current CR-V’s plush and ergonomic layout.
The fourth-generation CR-V landed in Australia in late 2012. The refreshed model is likely to hit showrooms in late 2015-early 2016, and will be available with the same choice of carry-over engines plus front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive layouts
They include 2.0-litre and 2.4-litre petrol variants and a 2.2-litre turbo diesel.
