Default Honda at the Auto Expo 2010

Note from Support: Our Official Honda Brio review is here: https://www.team-bhp.com/forum/offic...ve-review.html (Honda Brio : Test Drive & Review) Please continue discussion on this car in the new thread. Thanks

Along with Toyota, Honda had a pretty ordinary showcasing effort. The stall was placed bang across Toyota.

As if to take away some of Toyota's small car limelight, Honda showcased a small car concept themselves:

Notice the lack of conventionally placed door handles at the rear. Inspired by the Chevy Beat?

The stunning CRZ concept! Power comes from a 1.5 petrol Vtec + electric motor (hybrid) that's high on torque. Resemblance to the iconic Honda CRX (from the early nineties) is obvious. Some insist that the production model will be close to the concept we see here:

the jazz sport and Jazz Trends had some really nice skirting done. I like the back skirts of the Jazz sport and the front skirts of the jazz trends.

CRZ Concept looks fabulous. As said above, if the production unit is similar the concept looks it going to be another bit hit fot Honda's.

Honda Civic hatch has this sort of door handle placement, so as it turns out its Chevy who copied from Honda.

The CRZ looks awesome,the Jazz with the body kit looks mean but the choice of colour spoils the look.

Thanks again for the great pics GTO. Did the Jazz look impressive, it looks tad over done in pics, me thinks.

Default Feedback of New Small Car Concept

You can give feedback on what you think of new small car concept by honda at this link.

Honda - Auto Expo 2010

Its a flash page and once you enter the page then you have to click on "Honda New Small Car Concept" and after that on "Feedback" button.

Only limited number of questions are asked and I think members of team-bhp can certainly contribute to the decision making at Honda !
