Leaked patent photos of 2012 Honda CR-V

A days after the European Honda CR-V was caught testing with camouflaged, the studio styling surface has passed through official patent filing, according to Carscoop. The patent photos shows the detail styling clearly with hiding no more. As expected, the Concept CR-V unveiled last July previewed the mass-production CR-V saved for the massive alloys and fancy body cladding.

The new styling marks a clear departure from current car awkward front styling, which couldn't be saved even by the midlife facelift. The new SUV sports a cleaner front end, with more cohesive and solid looking. The glasshouse is sharper towards the rear, and featured a chromed belt-line moulding. The rear end now is free from hexagonal motif protrusion of current car. 

The car is scheduled to debut in US before the year end, and will arrived in Europe in fall 2012. World debut is planned to at Los Angeles Motorshow.
