Appearing in Sydney ahead of its November sale date, the new fourth-generation CR-V will be offered in both two- and all-wheel-drive - the latter marking an Australian first for the model.
Honda will also show off its new Jazz Hybrid at the show, before launching the petrol-electric hatch into the Australian market early next year.
Driving the new CR-V is an updated version of the previous model's 2.4 litre petrol engine, producing 137kW and 221Nm of torque - up from 125kW and 218Nm.
A five-speed auto remains the standard transmission choice, and Honda has yet to confirm if a manual option will be offered (the current model can be had with a six-speed manual).
In front-wheel-drive form, the international CR-V lists fuel consumption figures of 9.0 l/100km, while the all-wheel-drive version is listed at 9.4 l/100km.
2013 Jazz Hybrid
Like the hybrid models already available in the local Honda line-up, the Jazz Hybrid pairs a 1.3 litre petrol engine with an electric motor.
Matched to a continuously variable automatic transmission, the arrangement forms Honda's Integrated Motor Assist system.
The petrol-electric drivetrain gives the Jazz Hybrid a combined fuel consumption figure of 4.5 l/100km, compared to 5.8 l/100km in the 1.3 litre version of the regular petrol Jazz.
Honda says the system will allow motorists to travel around 850 kilometres on one tank of fuel.
