Honda’s updated 2015 CR-V, previewed late in September, has been revealed this week ahead of its Paris Motor Show debut.

The tweaked SUV will make its Australian debut in the coming months, bringing lightly refreshed styling and a number of key updates.

On the styling front, the 2015 CR-V’s face wears a revised grille design, flanked by updated headlights with integrated LED lamps and a new bumper design.

The rear end has also come in for an update, picking up a bold new chrome trim below the rear window and subtly refreshed tail lights.

Shown here in its North American trim, the CR-V also gets an update to the US market's 2.4 litre four-cylinder petrol engine.

In Australia, that mill currently offers 140kW and 220Nm. This latest update sees power remain unchanged, but torque has been boosted to 245Nm.

The SUV’s CVT automatic transmission also now features Honda’s ‘G Design Shift’ logic - featured locally with the new Odyssey and City models - promising smoother and “more natural” shifting.

For the US market, that upgrade also sees fuel consumption improved to 8.1 l/100km for FWD models and 8.4 l/100km for AWD models.

Honda says it has also made enhancements to the CR-V’s suspension, Vehicle Stability Assist and Electric Power Steering systems.

(We’ll have to wait until we’ve tested the 2015 model later this year, to verify those improvements.)

In the cabin, there’s a new centre console design and an arm rest, along with sliding sun visors and new heating/air-con vents for the second row.

Other updates include a new infotainment screen with Honda’s Display Audio system, along with 10-way power adjustable driver’s seat and a powered tailgate.

There’s also the Honda Sense safety suite, which includes Forward Collision Warning and LaneWatch.

In top-spec models, safety is boosted further with Collision Mitigation Braking, Lane Keeping Assist, and Adaptive Cruise Control.

The 2015 CR-V hits the US market this week, and will be in Australia by the end of the year.
