Very modern and clean 21st century design. Like the FIT, this could only come from the Japan studio.
Hybrid or no I'd consider trading the SI sedan for this hatchback shape.
Honda, please don't ruin the wheel size and tire gap...

Look for this as the October wallpaper.

Since it's supposed to be an econo-mobile... those rims and tires are not going to last. Both in design and size =/

Ugh, I hope you're not holding your breath on that...

That's the biggest issue I have with this concept. I would bet that Honda has all the details of the final product worked out. But then they go and "reverse-engineer" it to a concept car, adding over-styled body details, fancy lighting, and large wheels. And all it does is set us up for disappointment with the production car, with its normal lights and small wheels with fat-sidewall tires. They should have just waited and shown us only the final product.

Seconded. I've expressed similar reservations in the past for other concepts. It only serves to make us disappointed with a product we would've liked otherwise.

Why not have a "Sport" trim model available; suspension tweaks and tire and wheel package that would allow them to release a car that would create the excitement of this concept, for those who wish to sacrifce a few extra bucks, some ride quality, and an mpg or two, along with the standard staid trim(s) for those who want to go the other way?

Be interesting to see what percentage of people spring for the package.

I wondering the same. It's hidden in the spypics either, but in this one, you can sorta see the muffler.

Agreed. This is one beautiful car, inside and out. Certain things obviously won't make it to production, but I believe it'll still look amazing.
