Honda at the Paris Motor Show

Funny story. We had a tech snafu in the Paris auto show press room this afternoon. Apparently, Gawker ended up on some kind of banned-site list, which turned our online posting page into the Web 2.0 equivalent of the Great Wall of China, and we a trio of ersatz Mongols.

Spy Photos: Nekkid 2007 Honda CR-V

On a number of occasions, we've pronounced the Honda CR-V the best vehicle to shag in we've ever...erm, shagged in. But let's face it, it's always been somewhat homely. And well, if these spy photos are correct, they're hewing to the "butterface" theme with this latest model. We're sure it'll feel great once you're… » 6/29/06 3:57am 6/29/06 3:57am

Spy Photos: 2007 Honda CR-V

The 2007 Honda CR-V may be the sister ship to the Acura RDX — introduced at the New York show this past March — but it won't be getting the same hotshot turbocharged burner as its corporate cousin.

Sources Say: No Honda CR-V Hybrid; Fit Version a Go

The folks at Edmunds Inside Line appear to have heard from their Deep Throat at Honda, who says the hybrid CR-V that's been the subject of wide speculation is a non starter.
