Honda has released pricing information on the 2012 Honda CR-V, and while some models saw an average price increase of $181, navigation-equipped ones actually dropped down in price.

Pricing for the base LX with front-wheel drive starts at $23,105 (includes $810 destination fee) while the top EX-L model with all-wheel drive and leather seats starts to $29,805. But perhaps the best news is that the price for the EX-L with Navigation dropped down $300, with the front-wheel drive trim level starting at $30,605.

Honda says it added as much as $1000 worth of standard features to the crossover, including an easier fold-down 60/40 split rear seat and an SMS text messaging dictation function. Power has also increased to 185 hp and 163 lf-ft or torque, while fuel economy also improves, picking up another 3 mpg highway on 2WD and AWD models and 1-2 mpg city, respectively. Complete pricing on all trim levels are as follows:

LX FWD $23,105
