Honda has released a single photo of its upcoming 2012 CR-V compact crossover, and judging from the pic it's a lot less compact than before.

While the photo is of a concept, in true Honda fashion that means it's just a slightly embellished version of the production model that will debut later this year. The major style elements will remain, although expect toned-down amounts of chrome and smaller wheels. Of note is the three-bar grille, a design cue borrowed from the Accord CrossTour, but which looks significantly more fitting on this softroader.

Little is expected in the way of powertrain changes, with the 2.4-liter being carried over from the current generation with around 180-hp. A new 6-speed automatic could be part of the package, helping the CR-V achieve a slight improvement in fuel economy.

Also expect to find a version of Honda's new i-MID system, featuring an in-dash LCD screen and steering wheel controls, which first debuted on the new 2012 Civic.

The grille is similar to the Crosstour. I'll bet when it reaches market, it will look different, with non smoked out headlights, 17 inch wheels with 60-65 series tires, and the front windows will not be tinted (state law forbids it)
