Those rev-hungry Hondaheads over at the Temple of VTEC have persuaded spyshooter Brenda Priddy to part with a couple of images of the 2007 Honda CR-V, giving readers the best look yet at the popular crossover's pending replacement.

The glimpses show a vehicle remarkably similar to that of a rendering we showed you a few days ago. Even more car-like in execution than the outgoing CR-V, the mule in the photos does away with the rear-mounted spare, which will likely improve repair costs in rear-enders, but goes some way toward making the new model look exceedingly hatchback-esque.

      Okay, Lithous, do you know where some of the FOUR CYLINDER engines (the same one as the gas component of the FOUR CYLINDER HYBRID) used in the Vue (2.2L) and other GM vehicles are made? Germany.

      The V6 engine (SIX CYLINDER), you ask? That would be a Honda unit, made in OHIO.

      WOW! Soooo very similar to the new Acura RDX. That front end is nearly identical.

      FUGLY! Try again Honda. There are many other good looking small SUVs out there,

      C ertainly R epulsive V ehicle ?

      Wow, some passionate views. LOL. To add my two cents:

      I like what I see so far. I know it will be similiar to the RD-X, which I saw at the NY Auto Show. The smaller size fits me, seeing that gas prices are so high and I drive often. I am not crazy about the Rav-4 because it's bigger than before (bigger isn't always better). I just hope the inside isn't the same old cookie cutter design I have seen in other Hondas in the past. But I think they have been working on that.

      Final word: Just be nice to each other on the message boards.

      Honda is stuffing as much ugliness into one car as any company in recent memory. That front end looks like a design committee couldn't figure out what grill to throw on the vehicle so it used at least three different ones on it.

      The new CRV is a station wagon! LOL! Maybe Honda wants to become this century's Rambler! Bwhahahahahah

      I think it looks a bit like a minivan. It doesn't necessarily look bad, but nothing extraordinary. Then again, I hate SUVs/Crossovers, anyway.

      So those previous China spyshot releases of upcoming Honda products are true! This new Honda has that same snout shown in those spyshots, and I thought only China car designers would have come up with such an ugly beast. Looks like the Honda CRV just got hit with the ugly stick.

      To bad GM stifled the VUE with a 4 SPEED AUTOMATIC. Even the Element (last in honda's pecking order) will get the 5 speed auto for m.y. 2007, the CR-V has had it since m.y. 2005.

      Well at least I now know what NOT to get! I have a black 2003 CR-V EX, and it gets the job done. I hate how it handles though, and while the AWD system can be nice at times, it tends to make torque steer seem small. When the AWD system activates in a corner, be ready to fight the wheel! In all seriousness, when the income picks up I'll be looking at the RDX, RAV-4 V-6, or one of Subies XT models.

      Yes, now I am truly satisfied that I made the right choice in buying this year instead of waiting for next year... The 2007 is so ugly that I know the 2006 models will fly off the lots once the '07 is released.
