It is just me or you also find that tail lights are ugly af? Looks like something is missing there. Like they designed it then cut part of the tail lights but saved it for MMC...

The taillights are not ugly themselves, just unfinished.

With the Ford, the lights cut a bit into the tailgate thereby making the whole more coherent. The Honda solution is alienating the tailgate from its surroundings, giving this unfinished looks. To me, the design looks like the taillights were originally drawn in a different way (cutting well into the tailgate), but in a later stage, they decided against it, and we got plain sheetmetal instead of lights.

I think that's exactly what they did. They took the Pilot taillights and just took away the part on the tailgate.

i think they look ok. but only look worse to us because we know the original look and how it was on the pilot. so we right away see unfinished.

but to someone whos never seen a pilot it will look tight and sharp. i dunno

Just wait till MMC. I'm curious if they will add/modify tail lights to refresh sales. Yes, Ford's tail lights look more complete though I'm not a fan of either cars.

That black stripe across the tailgate goes into the clear portion of the lights. The stripe needs to be chrome.

Here's hoping all the other trims are chrome, and not all that black on the Elite trim shown.
