I know its just a concept but I havent seen Honda execute a concept this well in years. Its upscale, clean, unique yet has more than a few classic Honda design characteristics. I wish they could sell this car as is, minus the touch pad interior as Id buy it today even though Im not in the market for a hybrid. Yes, I think its that cool. Finally a hydrid with some personality.

Few questions:
- Do you think the wheels will stay?
- Do you think Honda should make LED or HID lighting an option?
- How much of the concept will actually reach production?

Speaking of upscale, the design of the Insight concept looks more high-end, expensive, luxurious, and dare I say more "advanced" than the TL.

I agree.

This is design is a clear winner. I've always driven an Accord, but this car seems to have more "Accord-ness" than the current Accord.

Definitely a design that originated in Japan, NOT the US.

The spypics showed a bluish hue in the headlights. I assume that means it'll have HIDs. LEDs are out of the question for a sub-20k car (though Honda, I DARE you to prove me wrong).
