The Honda CR-V has been one of the most, if not the most, popular small SUVs on the road. With each new version, it has only gotten better and, so, my interest was piqued when I saw this article with a ‘study’ of the new CR-V.
And I liked what I saw (photo is from Carscoop.com).
From Carscoop.com: “Honda’s official tuning arm created a new styling package for the latest generation CR-V comprising a front grille with a protruding chrome bar, a newly designed front bumper, chrome fender trims, side skirts, a new rear bumper with stacked exhaust outlets and a roof spoiler.”
I love the look of the new Honda CR-V that will officially debut in Japan in January. It looks…less soccer mom (not that there’s anything wrong with that) and more…”move over, I’ve got places to be.” I think that’s a subtle but bold distinction.
From this one photo, it does seem to have more of a minivan shape, but the front grill and shaping do not scream “I’ve got 3 kids in here spilling their milkshakes and throwing their fries! Would you please move over because I’m late to piano lessons!” I think it says, “I’m fierce and I’ll tailgate you until you move over to the right lane where you belong, you passive aggressive Prius!” Ok, maybe that got a little too personal (but really, are drivers of Priuses the most passive aggressive left-lane drivers ever or is it me?).
What does the new Honda CR-V look say to you?
