In Europe the MPV (multi-purpose vehicle) is becoming increasingly popular. While the new Mazda5 is the coolest looking one we've seen, Honda's FR-V is completely serviceable as well. Built on a stretched Civic platform, the FR-V looks every bit the Honda, dull lines and all. Yet it will have all the practical stuff we all love about Hondas. There will be a 125 horsepower engine from the Civic or a 156 horsepower 2.0L from the Accord. And since it will be sold in Europe, a diesel will be available in the spring.
