It is what is inside that was supposed to provide the cost reduction. If you compare the two, the CR has a lot of room inside and is a lot less "busy." I guess Commodore was hoping for a very large cost reduction, but the CR did not manage to deliver enough of a savings to make it worth producing so they scrapped the program.
