What it Looks Like
Now, we're not saying that this is the next CRX. In fact we sort of hope it isn't, because the styling is, well, weird. The profile is pretty cool, and the back end's glass inset is cleverly done (and, again, reminds us of the CRX), but the rest of it…eh, not quite. The nose is bizarre, and the wheel design is simply absurd, despite Honda's claims that the tires mounted to them will combine good handling with low rolling resistance. Still, we'll admit that with rolling stock not stolen off a pimped-out Escalade and a front end with, y'know, headlights, a production version could shape up to be pretty compelling.
What We Think
Predicting what a concept will wind up being is nearly impossible; our crystal ball on that subject crapped out years ago. That said, we'd love to see the CRX return to its former glory. Enthusiasts took it in the shorts when the CRX was replaced with the Del Sol ... blech. Honda owes us another CRX. A good one this time. Should it be a hybrid? We don't really care one way or the other as long as it's fun to drive, but if it helps sell it to the Environmentology-driven Honda of today, then hybrid it up and throw it our way.
