So, the designers went back to school to see if they could make a ugly car uglier. Now instead of actually sculpting a car out of clay, they just throw the clay on the floor and presto, new design.

Yuck.

Love the front. Not sure about the rest. No way I'd buy it over a Fit, I mean, unless it weighs 1400 lbs, makes 150hp and gets 45mpg, but I'd sure as E36 M3 buy it over a smart car.

I like it. Better looking than anything else Honda is selling in North America.

Looks like an up dated version of the Honda Today.

quote from the accompanying article:

Everything that young, discerning urban buyers would want in a car," according to Dave Marek, Design Director at Honda R&D Americas.

what about us discerning rural buyers ? ( notice I didn't include young ? )

Yeah, that's not better looking than a Fit. And I don't think the Fit is a particularly good looking car.

@wbjones: There are not that many rural buyers of tiny cars.

They should call it a Honda TURD cause thats it's shape. Zero points on style.

until the F150, little cars are all ( at least lately,[ last 25 - 30 yrs ]) that I've bought ... and as the price of gas continues it's rise, the small car should become even more of a rural necessity ... the need to drive farther ... that said, if nothing better (my definition ) comes along I'll probably buy a Fit next yr to replace the Integra

Y'all can hate, I think a CVCC and the GTI had a love child and got that thing. Which is awesome! The Fit looks like a Lumina MPV distant cousin that happens to be a dwarf.
