Still, not so small, unless you move couches for a living, people need to learn to love smaller, more efficient cars.

And now, drum roll please...

This thing is without a doubt CRX GEN3
Look at it, the natural progression of bigger, preservation of the original concept, and a continuation of the flatter hatchback roofline
The more I see it, the more I love it

I hear ya, but the side to side compare I just posted, I don't think the changes hurt it one bit at all.
I love the new feeling of more mass.

Re: Size does matter...

Ok, I'll start here, a properly done, with the numbers, to scale CRZ and CR-Z
I have to find a way to keep myself sane, so for me, when I type CR-Z I mean the 1st Concept, when I type CRZ I mean the 2nd Concept which is the one that just came out at the '09 October Tokyo Motor Show.



Nice!
I'm loving CRZ more than I loved CR-Z!!!

I guess wider & longer because of things like crumple zones, re-inforced frame, curtain air bags and other safety stuff

ALL NEW DATA

CR-Z Concept 1 converts to
4,080 millimeter = 160.6" Length
1,780 millimeter = 70.1" Width
1,280 millimeter = 50.4" Height
2,500 millimeter = 98.4" Wheelbase

CR-Z Concept 2
Length: 4,080 mm = 160.6"
Width: 1,740 mm = 68.5"
Height: 1,350 mm = 53.1"
Wheelbase: 2,435 mm = 95.9"

So the revised concept compared to the original concept
Length: The same
Width: 1.6" narrower
Height: 1,350 mm = 2.7" taller
Wheelbase: 2,435 mm = 2.5" closer

GEN2 CRX
148.5" Length
65.9" Width
50.1" Height
90.6" Wheelbase

So the revised concept compared to the '88-'91 CRX
Length: 12.1" longer
Width: 2.6" wider
Height: 3" taller
Wheelbase: 5.3" farther apart

This does indeed create a car that is a sizable amount bigger than the old CRX
Now if I try to ignore the weight gain due to this size increase, I will say, I do like the extra width, that will mean the track is wider, but, I wish it did not have to get so long, the only good thing is the wheelbase did not go up as much as the length; a big part of what makes the CRX such a blast to drive is that dinky short wheelbase.

Thanks.

And I totally agree, I figured when the next version came out I would like it less, but instead, I like it more.
I will admit though, when I get mine, I will not keep the a-pillars black...

Agreed! Yes, the new look does have Insight similarities. Especially at this angle:
yay! the insight finally is available in two doors. :P
