Ot: so much yumminess in this one concept

Honda is on to something here....again.



I can do without the infotainment broadscreen, but the interior is concept spectacular.



I'm sure there are 40 dozen ways they'll ruin this by production time, but man have they got a winner here......imo

Beauty is truly in the eye of the beholder. I'll take an early 80's 3 door civic before I even bother reading about this thing...

Get used to this. This is the future with self driving cars. Sofa for front seat. Infotainment. etc.

Blech...now that I've seen that, my day can only get better. I like cool, new stuff, but man, that interior looks perfectly designed for our future selves; blobby, skill-less children incapable of anything other than digesting digital entertainment. That movie Wall-E was prescient, I fear.

totally agree, some are there already. but at least soccer mom can yell at her kids without having to veer into me on the road...? maybe a bonus there somewhere.

cars just can't excite me at all.

I agree in principle but I'd add that where you drive matters almost even more. No use for that Porsche in crowded MA or NJ turnpike. I just got back from the south of France and rented a rather pedestrian 6 speed stick shift Ford Focus. Man, was that fun driving through all those mountain passes...wife had to remind me a few times that the kids were in the car

Especially the "etc"? They just took the back seat of my childhood and moved it up front.
