Concept is a concept, which remains on the drawing board! The final release cannot be expected to look much different from a "small Jazz" at the most with some i10 type touches. And those low profile tyres, will not be even available on pictures when the car is out.

Hi Dudes,

It is good night shot. Without looking at the interior it is too early to comment on it. The rear look will be OK after the mind set. When Swift came the same people talked that it was like a frog. Ritz got the complaint of the rear look. Now Ritz is also occuppying the road day after day. So let us wait till it appear physically as well as let the pricing too come out.

They are talking about 5 lakhs at the concept stage? No Honda won't fool me again like they did with the Jazz. We have lot more options now in 2010- VFM beat, Etios for reliability (assuming they don't make Honda's mistake while pricing nor skimp on their reliability!), Polo for a Euro hatch!

Nothing inspiring as far the design goes. Even Beat is a better looking car than this one.
Concept cars are meant to be appealing not to put off.
The back is truly horrinle. It resembles a toad getting ready for a big leap.

It looks like Honda didnt have anything good to display so they just made up a car overnight and put it on display

+1 to that.
So far the only concept which did not shatter my dreams after seeing it in production version is Chevrolet Beat!!

Coming back to Honda Small Car Concept, if at all this is the genuine small car concept for India then IMO to max it will be as good or as bad as Maruti A-Star in real. Cramped rear seats and virtually no boot space.

Incase it comes out with overall Space/Size = Hyundai i10, the first thing its going to do is kill Jazz!! as going by Honda standard whatever petrol engine they will put in this small car, will be refined and peppy.

BINGO. I thought concept cars are suposed to begin off looking good. What's happening with Honda and Toyota? Full credit to GM with the Beat.
