Honda Press Release
With the Beijing International Automotive Exhibition (Auto China 2014) coming up in a few weeks (April 20, 2014 is the media day), Honda has released a sketch depicting a sharp looking new 4-door coupe concept. Unfortunately, it is billed as being exclusive to the Chinese market. Also announced for the show is a new Spirior Concept (which we expect to be the Chinese version of the TLX), a new "mid-SUV" which is likely a Chinese-market Vezel/HR-V, and the new 3rd generation Fit.
Press Release follows.
