    WARNING! Honda propagandists at large...

    I too will wait for the 2007 to be released before I believe two different posts that appear to have been written by the same person, in the same clumsy style.

    Pricing is up a bit over last year's model. Expect around a $1,200.00 increase on average for each version LX, EX, EX-L=(Leather) and EX-L Navigation!!!!

    I noticed that you forgot to put exclamation marks behind "model" Tsk! Tsk!

    At first I too thought the posts were written by the same person. Then, I thought it looks like yysyys was quoting ccacp verbatim by copy and paste.

    But regardless, you're probably bang on with the Honda propogandists thing! ;)

    I copied and pasted that post from another website. yysyys seems to be very well informed on the CR-V since he has shared info on other hondas which was later confirmed to be true.
  • What other website?
  • varmintvarmint Posts: 6,326
    There are a number of Honda SUV and CR-V websites out there. A google search will find the good ones.
  • yysyysyysyys Posts: 51
    According to my source CR-V will have Bi-Level Digital Readout Instrument Panel.
  • Yep. Know that.I was specifically asking where ccacp was getting his "inside information" from. But no matter - I found it.

    Although Edmunds has become less strict about the policy, the member agreement for these forums states that participants should not promote other forums. For a long time that meant not even naming them.

    Which makes your's a question we cannot answer. Though, most hosts will allow us to drop big hints.

    Just a clarification - as long as your purpose in posting does not appear to be to drive traffic away from these Forums (i.e., purely solicitation for another forum), then it's fine.

    GOOD: I heard this information from some other folks in the allgoodautostuff.com forums. here's the info...blah blah blah.

    BAD: Hey, I found a great CR-V forum at allgoodautostuff.com. See you there!

    Hmm. Interesting. Sounds like a poster could possibly do a bit of steering if they're subtle about it. (Of course, subtlety isn't a characteristic of marketeers.)

    It's probably as good a solution as any, because it's nearly impossible to follow the Never, Never, Never rule when many posters are simply swapping info or responding to specific questions.

    So it makes sense to try to cull out the conspicuously trollish marketeers.

    Just a "been there" observation ...
  • Purported "official pics" of the European 2007 CR-V are up elsewhere today. A bit different than the Vancouver spyshots. Interior looks good.
  • varmintvarmint Posts: 6,326
    In the past, we've just written things like, "Google for Honda and SUV and dot com. You might find what you want."

    Which is sorta what I was doing. But since I've already caused enough grief this past week, I was being extra careful in not making our hosts work any harder. :shades:
  • varmintvarmint Posts: 6,326
    I saw those pics and agree with you on the interior. It looks great.

    Many will be fooled by the romantic lighting and professional photography, but the nose still looks bad.

    What is the brand name of tires, tire size and service description for all new 2007 Honda CR-V and what if Honda dealers in US Version to pick OEM brand name?

    European Version: Dunlop Grandtrek
    US (North American) Version: ?
    Japanese (Asian) Version: ?

    1997-2001 Honda CR-V P205/R70 15
    2002-2006 Honda CR-V P215/R65 16
    2007-present Honda CR-V P2??/R?? 1?

    I would love to see either Yokohama AVID TRZ or Michelin tires instead of Bridgestone/Firestones.

    In the US the 2G began it's life with 15" tires. Switched to 16" mid cycle.

    As per the spy photo, it appears the engine in the Euro CRV looks like a 1.8 litre Civic based engine. I hope North America gets the Accord based 2.4 litre engine. I do not think the 1.8 has enough torque to adequately move the CRV to American tastes.
  • drive62drive62 Posts: 637
    The current model has different engines for different markets. I imagine that will continue.

    Considering that the current US engine is 2.4L I don't think they will take a step backward.
  • shado4shado4 Posts: 287
    :surprise:

    That, folks, is a face only a mother could love (or a Honda fanboi).

    Ugly doesn't begin to describe how awful the nose of the new CR-V truly is.

    Where's the :puking: icon?
  • robertsmxrobertsmx Posts: 5,525
    CR-V has been offered with 2.0 liter engine in Europe, so the picture may be showing the same, except that the new 2.0 may be an R-series engine (like the new Civic) instead of the K-series. And 2.2-liter diesel.

    USA and Japan got 2.4 liter versions and that is likely to continue, perhaps with 165-170 HP.
  • robertsmxrobertsmx Posts: 5,525
    The new CR-V looks fantastic, inside and out. Except for the eye-sore that the grill is (especially from the side).
  • blackexv6blackexv6 Posts: 490
    Did someone kick the grille in? That is one ugly design. If they align the grille flush with the fascia it would probably look good. Otherwise, the new CRV looks pretty good to me.
  • ateixeiraateixeira Posts: 72,587
    Nice new pics...

    Hood still looks like it's not closed all the way. Tragic.

    I like most of the front end so a very simple face-lift could easily fix this. Without the underbite I'd even call it handsome.

    Bigger wheels fill out the wheel well better, too.

    Interior looks good, big step up IMO. Half new Civic, half Pilot, sort of. Seats look great.

    And I love that rear tail light, straight out of the Volvo school of design.

    The D-pillar really creates a blind spot if you look at those interior pics. You can't see diagonally behind you. But this is also the case with the RAV4, Infiniti FX, Nissan Murano, and Subaru Tribeca. Form over function.

    The spare on my '98 Forester L matches the regular wheels, all 5 are styled steelies. The alloys on the S model did not match, however. Cost cutting, plain and simple.

    Still better than today's donuts. :sick:

    That is a good description - it looks like you're riding down the road with hood open - horrible looking front. I am now looking at several other cars - I had already decided to trade my 2004 CRV for the new model until I saw the three piece front end. I am now looking at several other models. I will wait to see a 2007 in person - I can take bland but not a car that many people (including myself)will look at and think that's an ugly car. Many here say it's not so bad or I'll get used to it - that's not something I want to spend $25,000 on. I think varmint was right about the loss of sales since I had already decided to buy one sight unseen. Only something crazy looking like this design could make me look at other models. Sales may be saved by gas prices if it gets 28-30 MPG.

    "Sales may be saved by gas prices if it gets 28-30 MPG."

    Well, seeing as the current model gets 29 MPG highway, I suppose there is hope yet.
  • stevedebistevedebi LAPosts: 3,784
    Unless someone reversed some photos, that is a EU spec vehicle, with stuff that won't be on the US model (based on previous Generation introductions).
  • saabgirlsaabgirl Posts: 184
    This batch of pics show the more sculpted look of the body panels, suggesting that the vehicle might look better in person than the previous disguised shots.

    Still, I don't care for high-design SUVs. (Take the Murano. Please!) The more you try to make 'em pretty, the more you interfere with visibility to the side and rear and compromise utility, it seems to me.

    But that snout! I keep wondering what management process got that front-end design through the approval chain.

    It looks to me like a distant ancestor of the grille and hood line was the late-'40s Kaiser-Frazer.

    I can't decide which nose is more hideous, the "clown smile with a massive underbite" snout on the 2007 Honda CR-V or the "pucker up and suck on a lemon" face on the Subaru B9 Tribeca.

    :sick:
