Likes:
- lovely wheels
- nice headlight treatment (can't we get something like this for production please! If Audi can do it, why can't Honda?!)
- rear lights look waaaaay better than the current Euro Civic (I can see a Honda 'H' in the design)
- greenhouse is nice without cheat panels (visibility may be compromised in the rear though)
- never was a fan of the current Civic Euro wheel arch flares, they look a little forced but I must admit from certain angles, front 3/4 in particular, it works

Dislikes:
- the grill although better than many recent Honda grills, seems neither here nor there...with an ambiguous opening
- my biggest problem may be the pontoon like rear wheel arch flare. From the rear 3/4 view it has a sharp vertical crease on the edge as it wraps around to the back bumper (for aerodynamic reasons?). Not very nicely resolved imho.

Nice observation about the 'H' in the rear lights!

The full frontal shot and angle attracts me the most. I actually like how the grille becomes a seam in the headlight.




This makes the USDM Civic look like a bloated 90s Hyundai.

Thanks, yea the top bar in the grill extending into the lights is nice and a very current trend...might look better if it was chrome. Still don't like the actual opened section of the grill and the lower darkened part of the bumper below the grill - it reminds me of the Insight and Clarity that references VWs from a few years back.

Still don't think Honda will stick with the light tube graphics in the headlights and that would be key to pull off this look...I'm sure they'll cheapen it by using chrome or subtracting it completely.

DISLIKES:

Honda's production vehicles never look anything as nice as their concept vehicles. If they'd have this one even half as good as the concept, it'd sell like hotcakes!
