Honda first teased the redesigned 2012 CR-V in July. Now the automaker has pulled back the curtain on the redesigned Honda CR-V, which will go on sale nationwide December 15. Honda says the new CR-V will come with standard features that include Bluetooth, a backup camera and a function that can read texts over the stereo system when paired with a compatible cell phone. A 2.4-liter, 185-horsepower four-cylinder engine and five-speed automatic transmission come standard on all models.
