what's happening with Honda?

What is it with Honda Accord these days… with the exception of the coupe, everything is so BUSY.

TSX = Euro Accord
Euro Accord Inspire = Acura TL = Honda Accord

It seems as though Honda and Toyota bought into BMW’s appearance concept without understanding how to do it. Both companies have cars with surfaces that imitate the side surface of the Z4 (think Toyota iQ) or the use of shut lines and panel gaps (Accord, Camry are good examples).

It’s not a bad starting point, but when you screw it up…you screw it up bad!
