I love the looks that it had and I must say that the color gives more sophisticated looks on this concept. Even the figure performance is great and quite remarkable.

Agreed. The styling was great and the figure performance as well. This car definitely offers fuel efficiency. Small cars are the best solution for fuel crisis!

Well, small cars has been a very good option for a better fuel economy vehicle! And I guess that’s the main goal of this car! BTW, the styling of the car is great as well.

Wow! The platform of this car is kind of unique. I wonder if this car was already debuted? BTW, I think the LED effects on the headlights make it more aggressive.

The good thing about compact cars is that they offer better fuel economy and I think these cars are the best solution for fuel crisis!

I would think that if the Matrix can pass, this would. I use to own a CRX and loved it. I traded it for a 5th Gen Prelude and still have it with 350km and still going strong.

Ugly, but it should stay in concept.

Now This is a match for me. Honda is getting sensitive now on producing cars that fits the small one’s. Hahahaha!

@bobby_cruz: yes, I think in Honda’s small HB cars, because they have their unique concept that others are trying to copy.

@memphisroyce : I think it’s a great concept, a small car that can be used comfortably by a number of passengers

I think the concept of this car was copied to Honda Jazz, the style of the body was the same in Jazz.

I think small but terrible cars will be a hit this year. Because, most of the new cars launched by top car distributors are smaller in size but with a lot of use in the inside.

They should stick to the concept, don’t change anything and give it to the world. I know it will have more roda presence then the jazz.
