Handing aside, I'd say the combo of hideous nose and bizarre ergonomics point to a fail.

Why Honda didn't simply tweak the previous model's paper-dart looks and delete crazies like the rear wing and split dash is beyond me.

I have one on order, after many years of driving mundane mass produced vanilla I'm quitely impressed by this car Smile .  I made a huge leap of faith when I bought my better half a Honda Euro a couple years ago and was impressed, Smile my own trust in this experience has pointed me in  this direction for a smaller vehicle which suits my requiments, I hope my confidence in  this maker follow through.
