Could have Ultimate Warrior marker lights like the new Daihatsu Copen.

Cultural Clash: Japan vs. United States!


I like the Honda. I'd buy it if I needed a city car. But I use public transport mostly now, so don't even need a normal car that often.

My God that is horrible looking. I'm completely sick of this current trend where EVERY car made by said brand has to have the same design language up front. It's incredibly boring, unoriginal and in this case, ugly.

Agreed. Honda/Acura's current headlight/grill style has got to go. It's horrendous.

It's strange because Honda used to make some of the best looking cars on the road. I miss the old Honda.

I don't know how but honda really should fire most of their designers....... & just keep those one that started before 2000 & hire younger ones........all those hired in between need to be GONE.

The pictures show a 6MT. CVT is reportedly an option.

Agree, I could live with the looks, but 60 hp + CVT = not for me.

Manual + 100 hp 1.0t? Now we're talking!

What is wrong with CVT?


That is the best economic automatic transmission.
