I think the designer of the 2007 CR-V must be a pretty boy who stands in front of a mirror all day long saying to himself how pretty he looks. I also think that Honda took a back ward step, by not coming out this year with a CR-V Hybrid that can be used as a toad and recharge it bat tries while being towed. I have a 1998 EX and think it is one of the best and most reliable CR-V's built. The thing I like most about it, is that it is very utilitarian and can be towed and gets very good gas mileage, but a towable Hybrid would have been even better and a utilitarian design would have played up to it's role as a great all around outdoor vehicle. Just my thoughts on the subject.

"Do you routinely sit and stare at the front of your vehicle and ponder it's beauty? Do you think other people will find it "ugly" as they see you drive by? You've driven Hondas before that wouldn't be characterized as beautiful. Overreaction to the styling is running rampant."
Tell it to Pontiac and the two people who bought the Aztec SUV. 'Nuf said. California is a big market for the CR-V, and Californians are pretty picky on being at least non-offensive, and preferrably trendy, in their vehicles. To a large extent, you ARE what you drive out here. I owned a 2003 CR-V; I would hesitate to buy the 2007.
Yes, exterior matters to the buyer. And come to think of it, the Aztec had a split front end look as well.

The 2007 CR-V on the 3rd generation will have the following features which were not available on the 2nd generation: Telescopic Steering Wheel, Bi-Level Digital Readout Instrument Panel, Center Console with: Floor Shifter, Extra Large Storage Compartment and Cupholders, Variable Intermitent Windshield Wipers, Automatic Climate Control System on EX and EX-L and Daytime Running Lights!!! This info comes from a Dealership Pre-Order Fact Sheet!!! Enjoy!!!
I have both of those in my 2005 CR-V EX 5M.

The CR-V looks like it going the way of the latest trend these days, a crossover vehicle. Slowly the car makers are working their way back to the station wagon.
I think people are making too much of the front end of this vehicle. The civic and accord easily have much less appealing front ends than the 07 CR-V in my opinion.
The vehicle does look more refined and the new instrument cluster will be "civic" like. After seeing a few of the blue tint instrument clusters I think that style is beginning to grow on me.
I'm fighting my natural inclination to resist change.

Does anyone know if new CR-V will be bigger then a current one? Is it going to be as big as RAV-4?

Center Console with: Floor Shifter,
I have...(that)...in my 2005 CR-V EX 5M.
Were they not referring to an Automatic transmission I presume?

Actually, the Rav4s new size put it within an inch of the outgoing CR-V. Before it was over a foot shorter, 167 inches in length, I believe. I wouldn't think Honda would shrink the length much if at all.
The 2002-2006 CR-V length is 181 inches. The new RAV4s length is 181.1 inches.

Anyone know if the 2007 will have XM Radio?

Purely speculation here, but since the latest Honda models with leather are equipped with XM radio, I would expect the EX-L CR-V (top-level trim) to have XM radio, but wouldn't expect it on lesser models.

The 2007 CR-V has a 104.3 in. wheelbase, up 1 inch from 2006. The cargo hold, with the back seats folded flat, is down to 61 cubic feet vs. 72 cubic feet in the 2006! Minimum Ground Clearance is also down to 5.12 inches vs. 8.1 inches in the 2006! The roof line is also lower 1.5 inches less at it's highest point up front and 3.4 inches lower in the rear compared to the 2006! The Interior will be upgraded, though, compared to the 2006! Overall the lower chasis will translate to a better handling vehilcle with a sportier feel and smoother ride! A DVD and Navigation setup will be offered in upscale models! I hope this info will help you until the official release date comes along, just a little over 2 months"
The Plastic Grill just below the Hood Overhang that resembles a smile may incorporate 3 horizontal fins 'BLACKENED OUT' on lower models or on all final production models, depending on final management decisions"
THE NEW CRV IS BEIN BUILT IN LIBERTY, OH.
