It's Official: The US-Bound Honda CRV

Late last week, the auto-journalism overlords at AutoWeek busted out with a feature on the US-bound 2007 Honda CRV, again obliterating the corporate embargo on publication of the press photos. Maybe we'd have cared even slightly had the UK shots not leaked weeks ago. Anyhow, AW says the new CR-V, which has the comport of an angry, appendage-less dung beetle, will start at $21,400, or nearly $28,000 in a higher-spec version that includes AWD. A higher-powered 2.4-liter inline four will provide power, along with a five-speed autobox (no manual) and a real hatch in the rear.
