Japanese car manufacturer Honda has been testing the 2016 CR-V SUV facelift which is scheduled to go on sale next year. The vehicle has been spotted again conducting hot weather testing in the Death Valley in California.
The spotted Honda CR-V wears the similar amount of camouflage found in the previous test mule. The 2016 model will get a newly designed headlights and grille, while the front bumper is also likely to feature some update. At the back, the bumper, taillight and trunk door are covered; indicating a mild makeover is waiting for them as well.
The interiors of the vehicle are likely to remain unchanged compared to the current generation model. However, the updated Honda CR-V might get some changes to keep it refreshing in the market. We believe, Honda might add some additional gizmos to play with.
Mechanically, the 2016 Honda CR-V facelift will probably remain unchanged. The US spec model will get the 2.4L i-VTEC engine producing 185bhp and 221Nm. The European spec will continue with a 1.6L i-DTEC and a more powerful 2.2L i-DTEC engine. A smaller 2.0-litre i-VTEC engine outputting 148bhp and 192Nm will also on offer. Based on the mechanics, the customers will have an option to choose between front wheel drive layout or an AWD system.
