Feeding our hatch need like Sigfried & Roy feed tigers, a magazine scan from Temple of VTEC points to a production version of the Honda CR-Z Concept for U.S. consumption. Will the CRX return?

We've already reported on the CR-Z Hybrid getting a green light, but then we worried the rumors were about the Honda Insight. If this scan from Japanese automag Mag-X and a TOV-posters translation are to be believed, the new CR-Z will be a small, non-hybrid hatch equipped with a small fourbanger and a CVT and six-speed manual transmission.

With monthly sales targets of 1,500 for North America and an introduction early in 2010, this could be the CRessureXion we were all waiting for. We want to believe.
