The fluidic child of a city and an accord?
Its looking overly fussy. I know concepts are supposed to be , well , coceptual, but this looks like its incorporated all the suggestions in the box!

The rear has stretches similar to Amaze and the boot seems to be curvy more like verna types rather than edgy.

The front AUDI like LEDs in head lamps looks it over crowded. Front grill looks really good, IMHO the best among existing Honda models in India.

Default The Honda Crider: New Sedan from Honda at Shanghai Auto Show 2013 *LEAKED*

The Production version of the frequently spied(not in India) Concept C Sedan has leaked ahead of its debut at Shanghai Motor Show.

It slots in between the Civic and the Accord which is a fast growing segment in China.
It is expected to come with 1.8L engine & possibly even a 2.0 L engine later.

The Styling bears strong resemblence to the recently revealed all new Accord. albeit with a bit more height which also makes it look similar to some new Fluidic Hyundais It looks all right from most angles, but the front, especially the Grille looks a bit oddball IMHO. (Note to Honda: Look at your Accord, that is good styling).

The Rear looks great with that angular styling.

In India, it would probably end up where the Kizashi left. Do you think it would work in India? with a Diesel engine perhaps!!

The front grill looks like a mix of Brio/Jazz and the accord in the picture. Other angles look great though. However, without a diesel heart, there is no chance that this car will succeed in India ( i.e if they ever bring it ).

Is it me objecting or has Honda really over-"blinged" the car IMO? Don't why but everytime I look at the pic, I feel like either is a chinese copy of Accord by local company or even poorer, somebody has tried to modify his Accord at some local garage.

The side profile looks good but seems like a mix of fluidic Verna, Cruze and Kizashi.

The car is one step away from being called a Hyundai. That step is the front grill replacement and the rear H changed to H. I don't like over-fluidity (Eon) and this car makes me puke.

+1 to that. This is real bad. If it were not for the H badge, it would easily pass off as a poor garish Chinese imitation of the fluidic Hyundai Elantra.

Front Profile = Typical Chinese crap
Side profile = Fluidic Hyundai Elantra
Rear profile = Merc E Class

Net Result = Some mating which went seriously wrong.

Designs of products for the Chinese market are typically overdone in terms of styling. Same product in India/ elsewhere might have lesser visual clutter, lesser chrome and more subdued styling.
What you are calling a mix, is a trend which motoring companies design for. Certain characteristics signify contemporary characteristics and are implemented in various permutations and combinations by different companies...hence the seemingly similar designs.

This is a car specifically done for Chinese markets, designed locally and hence the loud styling. I will be very surprised if this makes its way into any other Asian markets. Apparently the design is inspired by dragon; wrong image to inspire a car design I say

Totally agree. I see a mix of so many cars in this. Plus there is too much bling.
It seems a "fluidic honda" overall.

If honda does introduce this car in India, wonder where it will be placed? D1 segment? Then what about the new civic? C2 segment, replacing city?

Horrible looking car - so garish with all that chrome and LEDs. The new gen accord looks so much better.

Doesn't seem like a Honda from the design.
Its more of a mix and match of what we have already seen. Where the creativity and innovation ?

Lights similar in shape to the Altis, the bonnet having lines just like a Skoda, a fluidic side profile.
Plus this chrome crap all over. Typically Chinese !

All in all a major disappointment for me as far as the exterior looks are concerned.
