The fourth-generation Honda CR-V makes its belated debut - albeit in "concept" form.

Honda’s cute ute is finally taking its bows, the 2012 CR-V delayed by about three months due to the March disaster in Japan that set all that country’s makers on their ears.

The CR-V has been one of Honda’s strongest sellers over the years – besting the likes of the Toyota RAV-4 and Ford Escape to top the compact SUV charts for the last four years in a row — and the maker is betting it will remain a solid contender going forward.  It will need a hit.  Honda has taken some unexpected lumps, in recent months, the new 2012 Civic slammed by critics that included the influential Consumer Reports magazine.
