The front bumper sucks.... I like the stroke of lining from front to rear.. At rear it looks like a porshe.. Honda sucked their own creation.... The current CRV front rocks (At least compared to this) !!!

*** is wrong with Honda ,i think they are going overboard with their new creative designs.the car actually looks better with the camouflage...maybe thats the new look
but since it has tht small little [H] badge on the front and the rear,it will still sell

We just got our CRV 2 weeks ago. Pretty happy with it... and its a darned popular car in the united states and australian (more amongst the asian migrants). In australia they are offering fantastic deals on the current CRV which is obviously to do with the fact that they are gearing up to the launch of the new model.

I cant decide as of now if its a love hate thing. But one things for sure the current CRV does look a tad dated... not that im complaining

From the rear the CRV seems to hug the road better, probably an anti-roll feature from Honda. It seems to be better spaced out and the weird design is accomodate such a feature. It look narrow towards the top and broad towards the wheel !

Honda reveals new CR-V

Predicting the future is no easy business, but one that car manufacturers must attempt every day.

It looks like Honda has access to a highly polished crystal ball because its new CR-V is an SUV with the touchy-feely qualities to keep the green brigade from throwing a fit.

The CR-V's centre of gravity has been lowered by 35mm to improve on-road driving manners, while a 30mm wider stance also helps here.

Honda says the CR-V's off-road ability has been improved with a revised Real Time 4WD system to detect front-wheel slip and send power to the rear wheels, but even it admits that the CR-V is only good for 'light off-road driving'.

The new 2.0-litre petrol engine is based on the Civic's 1.8-litre design, but the CR-V's 2.0-litre unit comes with 148bhp and 140lb ft of torque.

Diesel fans will appreciate the 2.2-litre turbodiesel unit with 138bhp that's carried over from the previous CR-V but with much improved economy and emissions.

Along with its greener credentials, the CR-V also lessens its SUV appearance's impact with a coupe-like curve to the rear window line.

Despite the more rounded rear end, luggage space is generous, and the boot space can be divided with the 'Double Deck' shelf that splits the cargo bay into upper and lower sections.

The rest of the interior continues to offer plenty of passenger space, with the gear lever now located on the dash to free up floor space.

Six airbags, active head restraints and electronic stability control are all standard, along with Trailer Stability Assist for towing.

Honda is confident the new CR-V will attain a five-star Euro NCAP crash test rating, four-stars for child protection, and thee-stars for pedestrian safety.

The CR-V goes on sale in the UK in January 2007, with prices announced closer to the on-sale date.







Personally I dont think its that bad.

i think we still need to wait and watch what we finally get cause all the CRVs in the various pics seem diff in some aspect or the other ..

specifically the part of the roof close to the C pillar .. it's sloping down towards the rear in some pics and continues straight on in others ..
