The new Honda CRV will be revealed at the New York auto show in 2018, with the Japanese automaker confirming that the all-new model will be introduced in the US by the end of the year.
The company says that Honda is aiming for a production capacity of 200,000 units by the first half of 2019, with sales reaching 250,000 by the middle of next year.
But Honda is also keen to show off its compact hatchback to US buyers, and it is working on a plan to make its 2017 CR-Z available to US dealerships at a later date.
The new model is expected to be offered in two variants, with a base CR-X and the base CR and a top-end CR-H, and also as an all-wheel-drive version.
A special edition CR-5 will be available at the show, with an exclusive model badge.
Honda’s first compact hatchbacks are already on the road in Europe, with two new models due to enter showrooms this year.
The CR-4 is expected in September, and the CR-7 in September 2019.
