Now I know this is a concept for China, so it won't quite match with conventional sensibilities, but I think Honda very well may have thrown everything on that front end including the kitchen sink...ghastly.

And if the US Accord gets that many undulations, body line hiccups, and over-styled flourishes I see Honda going the way of the Titanic, no matter how unsinkable their new tech is...

Too bad really because the overall silhouette is not bad...

But I'm guessing the greenhouse would get all cluttered when the production car rear side windows get another thin pillar so the windows could roll down - messy like Honda's latest sedan/hatch/coupe designs.

C for "creases"...I think there is too many.

Otherwise the overall shape looks nice.

It's no more vile or overstyled than any new Mercedes.

Dragon.... more like 'Predator' all it needs is a side view mirror mounted lazer weapon, and replace the grill with some venom dripping fangs.

From what I have read on ToV, most like this car on condition the front and maybe some of the rear changes.

I'm a bit surprised that most find the surfacing on the side of the vehicle acceptable and even beautiful...but, hey that's just me...

If the front and rear DO clean up, and if the greenhouse isn't full of cheap cheat panels front and rear, and if the lower light catcher on the side isn't so garish, I guess I would only have to live with the scalloped bone line and ILX/ZDX rear wheel arch hump...sigh...lots of 'ifs'
