    Looks a bit Lexus-ie to me (from the outside)

    @SpeedyGee - I can kinda see what you mean, probably down to the photoshopped images.

    One quality I really like is the symmetry of the interior - some of the newer Honda interiors lack symmetry for whatever reason which I never really got because (for me at least) symmetry = beauty .

    One flaw I can see though is the middle seat, looks uncomfortable.

    Looks good, but I guess very unlikely to see it in the UK.

    May be just me, but there is something of the latest BMW 7-Series to the back and rear quarter view.

    @Chunkylover53 - totally agree about the interior too.

    I'm not keen on the brown leather, but the Ivory and black look good.

    That looks fantastic but I do agree that its rear looks like its been taken from a Lexus. Love that interior - black for me.

    I could only wish for one of those....

    :Laughing: - I didnt notice that. Looks like the designer sneezed on the drawing and then just labelled the wet patches with button locations

    That looks amazing.

    Honda of old could sell that in UK.

    Kick the German vendors into touch, eliminate the German derived reliability risks, get it over here, bash the German rubbish into place show people what they are really wasting money on with the Germans and it will sell.

    The modern Honda can't sell cars in Europe has only come in since the volume obsessed waifs and strays from elsewhere (GM?) must have joined Honda. Honda was never about volume. This, along with a new Accord, as niche products will still be nice little earners and that will help with the hardcode Honda fans who will buy this - we like our individuality.

    Even call it Acura if they're that uncertain about the sales. Lexus broke Europe with the biggest model why not Acura?

    I'd buy it even badged as a Honda to wave the Vs at the Germans.

    I wonder if the Legend will eventually evolve to fill the gap of the Accord? At least it's Japanese built so there's something the same! lol I'm surprised there's no diesel, that could make it a real threat against the 5 series etc unless they heavily promote that their 3.5 V6 can return 47.4mpg.

    I do wonder why the Germans named their fastest cars after our motorways? :blush:
