Honda reapplies to trademark the name CDX in the US, but still no word on if or when we'll get an Acura CDX.

Small CUVs Are Hot, So Let's See What All The Fuss Is About

Small crossovers are booming right now, and the Honda HR-V is at the top of the pack. To see why these little guys are being gobbled up by consumers, we've added a 2016 HR-V to our long-term test fleet.

Honda has a huge array of custom vehicles at SEMA this year, including a tuned HR-V with eye-searing pink paint and a Pilot support truck for Baja.

Small CUV Looks To Make A Big Splash In The Mainstream

The compact CUV party is getting hot, and Honda's 2016 HR-V wants in on the fun. We give the Fit-based crossover a full test in Miami.

The idea of an Acura-badged Honda HR-V is picking up steam, as the Japanese company's premium brand registered a trademark for "CDX," with the US Patent and Trademark Office.

Report

Acura is at least looking at an entry in the increasingly important compact CUV market, with a vehicle based on Honda's upcoming HR-V.

In its most economical form, the new Honda HR-V ranks as the most fuel-efficient, conventionally-powered crossover on the market, with an EPA rating of 28 miles per gallon in the city, 35 on the highway and 31 on the combined cycle.

Honda's extended tease for the 2016 HR-V compact crossover is finally over. The CUV debuted in Japan late, last year, and the company has trotted various versions to shows around the world since then. The time has finally come for all of the details about the US version to be revealed at this year's Los Angeles Auto Show.

If the Honda HR-V feels awfully familiar to you by now, you're not alone. We've seen it debut in Japanese form (dubbed "Vezel"), caught a prototype in Paris, and Honda first showed us the US-spec version in press-photo form all the way back at the New York Auto Show in April. We're finally going to get all the details on Honda's new subcompact crossover this week as part of the Los Angeles Auto Show, but first, we're getting an early look at the CUV today.

Generally, the best policy in life is to admit when you're wrong and just accept the consequences. However, that attitude generally seems to be a bit less common in the world of business – at least without some government or legal prodding. So, it's especially surprising to learn that top Honda executives in Japan are taking a pay cut for the next three months following the fifth recall of the Fit Hybrid (pictured above) in the last 12 months.

Honda has already showcased its new Fit-based crossover around the world. We've seen it in Tokyo wearing the Vezel name and we've seen it in Paris in 'prototype' form. We've even seen photos of the US-spec version. We just haven't seen that North American model in the flesh, but that'll all be fixed next month at the Los Angeles Auto Show.

Paris

Is there anything quite so exciting as seeing a brand-new vehicle for the very first time? Part of the allure of auto shows is the chance to see new ideas, just before they're fully baked and ready for public consumption. "Prototypes" you might say, of production models that are just around the corner. Or, in the case of the Honda HR-V, already down the block a ways.

Report

If you are looking forward to the launch of the 2015 Honda Fit and can't wait to buy one, we have some bad news. Honda is holding off on sales a little longer to make sure everything is just right. The brand's latest subcompact was originally scheduled to start arriving at dealers this spring, but the introduction was delayed due to issues at Honda's new factory in Celaya, Mexico.
