For the 2010 model year, the CR-V's looks have been slightly refreshed with newly designed front and rear bumpers, a more conventionally styled front grille without the chrome bars and new 17- and 18-inch alloy wheels plus color coded bumper on higher grade models.
There are no pictures of the interior as of yet but Honda says that the 2010 CR-V receives upgraded fabrics and plastics inside along with a new audio console design. Furthermore, the company claims to have improved sound deadening around the engine and cabin.
Under the bonnet, the revised SUV gets a updated version of the company's 2.2-liter turbo diesel engine that now produces 150 horsepower and 350Nm (258 lb-ft) of torque at 2,000 rpm, an increase of 10 hp and 10Nm over the previous unit.
This diesel unit can be paired with either a manual transmission or Honda's new 5-speed automatic gearbox that has been developed in-house.
Honda said that full specs and pricing on the 2010 CR-V will be announced later in the year, but it is possible that we might learn more about the facelifted model at next week's Frankfurt Show.
