I see a ton of Subaru CrossTrek’s in my area and they seem to sell well overall. Do you think Honda could make something like this out of the hatchback?

The CRV is closer than the HR-V.

I guess the CR-V and Crosstrek are both based off of compact cars (Civic, Impreza) while the HR-V is based off of a subcompact (Fit) but in terms of what realistically competes with what the HR-V is more of a direct Crosstrek competitor. The CR-V is a size class above.

If you look at Jeff's "model release matrix" there's a 2 door CUV, "Passport", penciled in.

Perhaps this is along the line's you're thinking about?

Me, I would love a "tall" Civic based small CUV wagon. Something the size of the CRV but not so tall and SUV looking.

The Passport (TGS), when it comes out in 2019, will be slotted between the CR-V and the Pilot.

All the Crosstrek needs is a manual, WRX turbo and a moonroof with the manual option and Subaru would have a killer platform. I really like the Crosstrek....and it is selling exceptionally well. Unfortunately the HRV was supposed to compete with this vehicle.....the only similarities are the weak power trains. Another vehicle that would be splendid with a turbo is the CX3.....

Manufacturers seem to think consumers want economy over power with small vehicles. Honestly I want power and engaging performance......anything but, a CVT.
