Hey presto – the first photo of the facelifted Honda CR-V has found its way online! New are the front grille design (two-bar), front bumper (rectangular fog lamps), headlamp internals (with LED surrounds), wing mirrors (slimmer) and shuriken-like alloys.

What about the back? Well, our spyshots reveal a reshaped rear bumper and a new wing-shaped bar that runs across the Honda tailgate badge. There probably will be some minor changes to the interior – maybe all that touch- and HDMI-enabled stuff from the City, Jazz and HR-V/Vezel?

Reports speculate that everything underneath could be earning a repeat performance – North America should carry on with its 2.4 litre DOHC petrol engine, while Europe should get a 1.6 litre turbodiesel, a 2.2 litre turbodiesel and a 2.0 litre SOHC petrol.
