2010 Honda CR-V Facelift: First Official Photos, Unveiling on Sep. 17

Turns out that the scoop photo of the refreshed 2010 Honda CR-V that we showed you back in May was the real-deal as this official shot of the facelift model that was published on Honda's Japanese website confirms. According to Honda, the updated CR-V will be revealed on September 17, which also happens to be the first day of the Frankfurt Motor Show - though, we don't know if Honda will actually unveil the SUV in Germany.

It will take a trained eye to notice the extremely subtle cosmetic changes on the 2010 CR-V - at least in what concerns the front end as we don't have any other photos of the model. These include the larger upper grille that now features less chrome trim, the modified lower grille and the reshaped bumper with the new lower part and smaller fog light housings.

We're not aware of any other styling changes or mechanical upgrades, but we gather that Honda will release full details of the European and North American 2010 CR-V along with the JDM model.

How about an attractive vehicle for once?

The new Hyundai Tuscon (it appears) and Chevrolet Equinox have stepped it up... it's time for Honda & Toyota to do the same in their small SUV offerings.

What about the addition of the mirror lights/turn signals??? Or did you not notice this little upgrade??

Yes we did, but the turning signals are already offered on the JDM '09 CR-V (see the pic)

You guys do realize it's the best selling SUV in America, right?
As the saying goes, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it"!

Besides the Mercedes S models looking headlights, I think it a little better looking. Still boring but has a nice face.. I'll still go with something more exciting. This would be perfect for my little sister though.

I hope that they beef up the roof since it did marginal on the roof strength test conducted by the IIHS. From reading the article from the IIHS website if a vehicle does not maintain a good rating on all four tests the vehicle will not receive a top pick rating.

I own an 2008 CR-V and basically I find it a crap car all round, Maybe a diesel model with some decent looks... they might be back in the game..ALso the CR v and other honda models dont have a nice feel to them when on the road. Would never buy Honda brand again!!!
