To each their own - I think the Camry is not as aggressively designed as say the New Altima:

Not that it matters but that is a newspaper: "USA Today". You can see the banner on the top right corner.

Sometimes I Wonder if Hyundai have a SPY in almost every Auto Co. design dept.
Maybe the design gets leaked and Hyundai are faster to bring the car out in the market than its original owner..

a yank sitting in a honda is probably gorging his eyes into a 'daily babe' pic in a tabloid!
have to say the new car does look strong and chunky.
whats with the ground clearance on sedans today?
on indian roads most of these are going to scrape their undercarriage raw...esp when fully laden.

Difficult to believe that Honda will go for a box type design like that. Looks more closer to Hyundai or a Nissan. However not that ugly looking for me... I hope those grills are chrome. New Camry looks much better though..

I would think 2 factors would detemine the new vent designs:

1. AirFlow - Think Wind Tunnel - Better dispertion of air through round vents versus square/rectangle etc. (I do not have an IIT degree to back this up! )

2. Design Language - I think Round and smooth shapes convey a more modern design language - less breaks in design and there is a nice flow - If the whole dash is round and then you have a bunch of rectangles thrown in - it looks wierd.

YUCK!!! Gimme the current Accord anyday! Why would you take a thing of beauty and replace it with an ugly monster? I do hope for Honda's sake they reconsider bringing that car into India. And this from the company that gave us the OHC, the Civic and the gorgeous Accord.

First look at the snap and i was thinking whats an Embera doing here. Then i recheck to make sure i was on the right thread. Really bad looking, especially when you consider how good the Civic from the same stable looked.
