I think it looks fine. A bit more upscale than the outgoing model, especially inside. It will do a great job at keeping existing customers. And that's pretty much all they need, the CR-V being so popular already.
Powertain is not really improved,using the familiar 2.4 Liter with 185hp. Which is actually enough for most buyers.
No novelties like a 6 speed auto or glass roof. Five speed and an old fashion sunroof instead.
