Next CR-X


Honda claims officially the CR-Z concept will indeed become the next CR-X.
And there will be a hybrid version as well as a “regular” one.

We’ll have to wait untill 2009 to see what the watered down production version will look like…

  1. IF this thing looks 1/2 as good as this….I’ll look.
    And,IF the stories of 17K MSRP(for the hybrid version, supposedly this is a slightly strecthed…Fit platfromed car)…..starting price is true… I’ll check it out.
    IF the gas engined version is on par of the tC…and MSRP…. (or less, since it’s going to be about 14 inches shorter than a tC), I’ll check it out.

    Just wonering if a gas engine version, if it is so light, even if it’s sort of fast, if it won’t get around 35-40MPG, at least?
    I know the tC, at 910000 miles…and automatic, is getting 31-32 MPG…. and that is 65% hwy(60 MPH avg)….and City…45-and under-MPH.
    Have hit 34 a few time, mostly hwy, cruise control.
    If this is something 20K+ MSRP.. No. Since it is supposed to be less costly of a hybird, versus the Civic hybrid, it should be under 20K.

    I hope the “09” is CY 08!
    Heard it will be, and we MIGHT see it in Chicago, this car… a (closer to production, or a production, according to the dealership) version.
    We’ll see.
    I think this thing is closer to production-ready than we might think, especially since 2005, we have heard reports of work being done on this vehicle.

  2. The new Accord Coupe has to lead the way in advancement and technology, while something like the
    forthcoming CR-X might share some of the initial gadgetry.

  3. This is great news, I just test drove a new Civic Si, but this would be more suitable for what I am looking for, a true lightweight sports car. The Civic weighs about as much as my Prelude. Plus, this will likely prompt competitors from Toyota and Nissan. It’s gonna be like the mid-80’s all over again. The muscle car is going through its retro era, and now so is the sport compact.

  4. Expect it to have the same awkward styling of the Accord, right down to the clunky pedestrian-friendly shnoz.

  5. Good looking coupe. It will be a hit. Of course Honda introduces one more grill among hundreds it has in the past 5 years. Will they ever settle on one or two for at least a year? If nothing else, just to create some brand identity….

  6. Don’t like it. Hurry!!!…run out and get the better looking 2007 edition. Sometime car makers don’t know that what they have now is much better then what they are planning to build. the current civic is not that old.

  7. Why do they always make the concept look so great but the production car is never that good looking? It seems to me that they should follow what GM is doing and producing the Camaro concept which I am sure will be a huge seller. Oh, and the new Honda Accord looks so lame, why didn’t they just make the headlights flush with the hood instead of sticking them out like bug eyes, I hate that style. The Camry has the same thing.

    Umm, this grill is the same general shape of the New Accord and Odessey….it’s just in a different place and a bit bigger….
