    I hope Honda Europe takes note of this and stop making assertions the Accord is not viable for Europe due to the strong yen.

    The new IS will be made in Japan or Toyota has funds from the yakuza which make them immune to the fluctuations :Rolf:

    That point aside .. from the side of it looks a BMW.

    From the front it looks like its got cleft pallate syndrome.

    And the interior likes its straight from a Jaguar XF :lol:

    Sorry but no, that looks nothing like a BMW. At all.

    Lots of reference points to the outgoing IS family, but not BMW.

    LOL, fair enough.

    Beauty is in eye of the beholder though and it's not tickling any taste buds for me.

    Saying that, I saw a new Mazda 6 today. That was an eyesore. Looked hideous.

    I'd have had my kneecaps shot with a sawn-off shot gun and made to walk than be seen in that.

    Have to agree the last new model from Lexus has German design cues all over it. Lexus is leaning towards the German design as they may be running out of ideas.

    IIRC I had started a thread on the last released Lexus forget what it was !! they don't have anything Japanese about it.

    Yup the new Mazda front looks like a Piranha all it needs a few fangs and paint job to complete the transformation.

    However they have achieved a few technologies which are commendable and the 9th Generation Honda has to deliver more than the Mazda six which is way cheaper than the Accord.
