    Honda could be joining Volkswagen and Ford with sharing platforms for a number of vehicles to reduce costs and increase sales.

    According to The Nikkei, Honda is looking at using a common platform for the Accord, Civic, and CR-V. The three models would share 40 to 50% parts when the next generation models would arrive from 2015 to 2017. Currently, the Civic and CR-V share around 20% of parts and neither model shares with the Accord.

    Honda is also planning to increase global sales, setting a goal of 6 million vehicles by 2016.

    isnt this quite similar to what they did in the 80s? The CRX, Prelude and Civic for example could really have just been one car platform could they not? Even the Accords were quite similar, in more than just style..

    I recall, for a couple of years anyway the doors from Prelude/Civic and CRX must have been interchangeable.
