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.

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.

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?

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.

The new CR-V looks fantastic, inside and out. Except for the eye-sore that the grill is (especially from the side).

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.

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.
