20 images: A closer look at the all-new Honda CR-V

There looks to be no stopping Honda this year. The Japanese carmaker has launched car after car in quick succession over the past few months, with the Philippine arrival of a trio of refreshed models and the Civic Type R. Now, the all-new CR-V follows suit.

The popular compact SUV boasts a new drivetrain and the availability of a diesel engine, as well as an extra row in the rear. The added practicality of two additional seats should play well with the Philippine motoring public, and having a choice between a gasoline or diesel engine is something any prospective car buyer can appreciate.

But what about the vehicle's looks? Did Honda's effort to squeeze in more passengers affect the CR-V's proportions? Not in a bad way, we think. In fact, we'd say the rear looks sleeker than ever thanks to redesigned taillights and stronger character lines.

Inside, the company's done away with traditional shifters in favor of electronic gear selectors in the form of buttons and switches. There's a dark vibe and plenty of nicely done faux wood trim on the door panels and dashboard, too. It's a refined cabin for sure.
