Honda CR-V Hybrid previewed ahead of Frankfurt debut

The fifth-generation Honda CR-V has been a huge success for the Japanese automaker. It's arguably the class leader, improving on its slightly disappointing predecessor in nearly every aspect.
It's unclear what may have changed since Shanghai. Both concept cars are powered by a hybrid powertrain featuring a 2.0-liter naturally aspirated inline-four running on an Atkinson cycle and two electric motors. The system uses a single-ratio direct drive transmission. The CR-V Hybrid will have three drive modes that vary the amount of assistance from the electric motors.
