Honda Ridgeline

  Volkswagen CrossPassat
   
   
When It Hits: The slightly freshened Honda Ridgeline is due to launch in November.

What Priddy Says: The pictures reveal a new three-bar grille and new taillight lenses. The team has two expectations for the Ridgeline: A small boost in fuel economy and production for the Ridgeline to continue after 2012, contrary to recent rumors.

 
When It Hits: With the expectation of some additional cladding on the U.S. version, Priddy would not be surprised to see the CrossPassat in dealerships by 2013.

What Priddy Says: At first look, this vehicle was thought to be the U.S. version of the VW Passat but, on closer examination, these are shots of VW’s new CrossPassat prototype. The front air dam and headlamps appear to be similar to the U.S.-spec Passat sedan, and the shooters peeked inside and noticed U.S.-style gauges with mph markings.
