That's certainly one of the best designs of recent Honda, and to me at least it looks "production ready", in the sense that there is nothing really extravagant on its overall shape.

Remove the fancy doors, put some production interior with a less dramatic sky-roof and you've got Honda's best achievement to date on their new design language.

Hope they introduce something like that in the very near future.

I agree. I love that modern-minimalist thing and perfect expression to propel the family.

So pure and gestural...

count me in too.
I miss the euro civic, then fr-v but I don't think this will come to us shores in this form :( and wasn't it fuel cell concept?
If honda is removing 2 seats out of crz, skydeck will be actually more piratical choice for me anyway - looks like a grown up crz/insight hybrid:) - design wise.
as I said before that modern-minimalistic design just reminds of IKEA (maybe the wood panels more than anything but I'm digging it)

...oh well nevermind I saw the pictures on the second page and the eco guide and IMA logs so it's hybrid:)
I'll love the glass roof but I can live without it.

Exactly, as the Skydeck is HAWT! It looks as if Honda may be FINALLY getting a good design bug as this looks to be the new corporate face for future Honda's which isn't a bad thing.

skydeck looks like it ws just slapped together to make it to the show. ateast put seats in there that would look like something honda would put in a vehicle, not something that belongs in a lawn.

hey honda, 1988 crx called and wanted that steering wheel back.

I'm actually not a fan of the Skydeck - I don't think the CRZ face grilll works well here, and the overall shape is too van like for a wagon-sized car. I LOVE the interior though, particularly the seats. I'd love to see a hybrid 7-seat wagon, though, but probably with a shape that conforms more towards the Stream or JDM Odyssey.
