Trust Honda. They'll invariably price this beyond Rs. 6 Lacs. History repeats! I hoping against hope they don't!

It looks like a 5 door car. How do you open the rear doors from outside? I can't see any door handle, not even the Chevy Beat kinda handle!!

Seriously disappointing, IMO Chevy spark is a better spaced and reasonable good looking car than that one.

Its very obvious its gonna be cramped inside the car, even for 4 passengers.

The back side of this car looks crazy .. ( Mean something is not right )

The front looks are good ...

Hope this will go through all right changes ..

Looks like they used the taillight cluster from the USDM Accord Coupe.

A pillar looks good. F styling is unimaginative.

if its a two seater this is ok. else its a repeat of claustrophobic history. i dont understand the fanaticism in car makers to make cars looking like aeroplanes. design is important but we dont want designs of 2050 in 2010. we first need a capable car that can eat into others business and take up market share. next we need stable and good service. and the perhaps futuristic stuff.

here it looks like both honda and toyota in their eagerness for this year are showing stuff which could be perceived differently than their expectations. time will tell.

i feel sad when i say this but even A-star looks better! there i said it out loud. etios front is whacked but this bumper in the back is plane wierd! and what's up with flaring wheel arches. they flare it up so much. it flares up my temper

if i were the designer in honda. i would have taken the CRV shape combined it with jazz hatch platform spaceframe and shrinked it to the size below the jazz! for it become a small car! but at the same time keeping in mind space required form 4 people to sit comfortably and put in a smaller boot! lo- and behold you have a small car concept! . i know doing it and saying it are two different things.

Seriously unimpressive.

How does one open the rear door? Does it like automatically swat you if you come too close or something?

Thumbs down

One word - YUCK !!!! What was Honda thinking ?? The best yet is the ANHC & the Jazz is about passable..what were they thinking when they designed this concept ? Star Trek ??

Me thinks this will remain more a concept than a production car. The rear looks too claustrophobic to me, similar to the Beat.

There are some more pics on the other thread.

It is not a "Small Car". It is a "Small box". The rear is totally damaged!

The Front looks quite good, but what has happened in the rear? Claustrophobic taken to a new level at the rear.
