Yea, the upcoming new Honda Accord 2-door is ugly. Don’t bother even mentioning the 4-door cuz it looks just like a Hyundai Sonata with a Honda badge on.
Back to the 2-door coupe. The interior is beautiful and all the features are great but as the saying goes, “the first impression is the last”,
looking at this thing made me wanna gag. I absolutely hate the exterior styling. Even though I tried to get used to it and like it but there’s too many things going on with the different shapes on the car. This picture above is the best I could find. Look below and start throwing up!
I’d like to point out 5 major problems with the exterior styling
1. The stainless steel grill makes this look ugly. Blacken it out! 2. The tail lights don’t appear to match with the theme of the car. Make them narrower! 3. That stupid indent rising line on the side by the door-handles is jus so BMW style. It makes this look like it’s got one too many creases. Get rid of them!
4. The hood. That horrible gap between the hood and the front nose thing is too large.
5. The hood again. It’s too flat! Give it a bit of a curve to it.
HONDA! PLEASE WAKE UP!
EDIT: 09/26/07 It’s not so bad now. Getting used to it thanks to those fabulous ads.
EDIT: 02/25/08 Even the 4-door is looking better now. I actually got to see one in person and it looked like a luxury full-sized sedan compared to the Accords from the past. Very sleek lines but the tail-lights felt somewhat neutered. I guess my biggest problem with the 4-door is that it doesn’t look like a Honda other than the headlights and nose. Yet to see a 2-door in person but I guess beauty is in the eye of the beholder and I like it.
EDIT: 03/16/08 A black 2-door Accord coupe flew by on the other side of the road as I was headed out to Wendys for a bite. That thing oozed class. I deeply regret writing that I thought the 2-door was ugly. It’s exquisite and tasteful. Very upscale which is why I denounced it in the first place but now it’s a must have.
