    Yes that is Good news I and already liking this new chief!!and guess what the 5th Generation CR-V is coming from the motherland "For Canada, the original plan was to have Canada produce and export CR-V to Europe. However, in order to accommodate high demand for light truck models in North America, the plan was changed to have Canada focus on supplying CR-V for North America and have Japan export CR-V to Europe."

    And Europe get more Japanese made cars superb news even the HR-V

    For Europe, in addition to the Jazz, which we have already been supplying from Japan, the HR-V and CR-V will be supplied from Japan, so that Japan will complement production in Europe, which will focus on production of the next Civic Hatchback.

    In that case, that does make the CR-V even more attractive.

    They should even consider bringing the Prelude back!

    Hopefully the organisation has now changed, or is undergoing change, to get rid of the mentality that killed the Accord originally. It was all a bit British Leyland infighting style the anti Japan stance.
