Leaked: New Honda Crossroad

Many images of vehicles that haven’t been introduced yet have been leaked over the web, which is not common after these past few days of leaky pipes, including the Jaguar C-XF concept and the Lincoln MKR concept dispute. Well, now, CarNewsSite brings you the first exclusive images of the new Honda Crossroad, which is expected to be released in mid February of 2007.

Numerous spy pictures were posted all over the web concerning this mystery vehicle which was caught on camera cruising down the streets of Los Angeles in somewhat heavy camouflage. The Crossroad name only applies to the Japanese market, and it may be the next Element as we know due to the fact that it integrates the design and numerous seating arrangements found in the Element.

Size of the Crossroad will be at around 65 inches tall, with a width of 70 inches and a total span of 168 inches, this crossover seats up to seven passengers, opposed to the current Element, which only seats a disappointing four, yet it is more compact than the current generation of the CR-V, yet longer in wheelbase. It will be available with two engines, which is a 140-hp 1.8-L or a 150-hp 2.0 and comes in either front wheel drive or all wheel drive.

When we receive additional information, we’ll post them here, so stay tuned. And check out the small gallery if you continue reading.

Enjoy these (ugly) pics! Looks like Honda’s are becoming to look more like Ford’s and Ford’s are becoming to look more like Honda’s.
