Put some leather seats in that, slap an Acura badge on it and you've just revived the brand. That could be an Acura any day.

You know I hate to say it, but I like the interior looks of this better than the new TL for simplicity and what appears to me to be better 'flow'.

Honda would just be accused of copying Toyota again: http://www.autoblog.com/2008/10/02/toyota-confirms-prius-based-lexus-hybrid-for-europe/.

Doesn't matter much if they copy something successful. With the low cost they're suggesting for the Insight, they'd make a huge profit on a rebadged Acura version, even if they only sold a few. It would be like the Acura EL in Canada, but for everyone in NA.
