Honda Planning Smaller CR-V

Honda Planning Smaller CR-V

Honda is rumored to be planning another crossover model to join its lineup in the near future. Slotting in between the CR-V and Civic, it would be the brand’s smallest utility vehicle.

Word of the new model comes out of Europe where Honda sells a Civic hatchback that rides on a different platform than the Civic sedan and coupe sold in North America. The new crossover will reportedly be based on that architecture, raising doubts that it might not be available in North America.

Designed to compete against the European Nissan Qashqai, Honda is looking to regain much of the ground lost to smaller compact crossovers in Europe.

The yet unnamed car is scheduled to go on sale as early as next year.
