Even with the hyper/overdesigned Camry, it's still stodgy - and the grill now makes it looks like it has an annoyed, pursed mouth. The Lexus is just a costlier extension of that.

Looks like Houston will be getting its first automobile company based from here and built here.  

 

Electric car maker Lumen Motors coming in 2018.

2018 Honda Accord

Don't like the lower portion of the grille but the front end is growing on me.

Some traces of Chevy Impala on its side.

Chevy Impala look more pronounced in the rear, with Subaru tailights.

Nice interior but they could've gone further, I think it will become outdated rather quickly.

Honda did great with the new Civic, but didn't carry that greatness over to its larger sibling. For the first time I prefer the looks of the (upcoming) Camry over the Accord.

Everybody is going for the fastback look these days with the kinda-sorta opera window in the c-pillar. This also marks the end of the non-luxury/non-muscle/midsize coupe as Honda's discontinued the Accord coupe for 2018.

They have also discontinued the V6 engines for the Accord for 2018 in favor of turbo fours. Similarly, after many years of US enthusiasts slobbering over multiple generations of the Civic Type R that were never made available in the US domestic market, they finally decide to sell the new-generation Type R here, but in place of the hyper-tuned, high-revving naturally aspirated engine that was the model's hallmark, the new one has a turbo four (although at 300hp a lot of people probably won't miss the old NA engines too much). The fact that some of these changes were likely driven by the need to meet ever-tightening mileage and emissions standards don't make them any easier to swallow. 

 

I miss the days when Honda set benchmarks for engineering. Their current Formula 1 engine program is an unmitigated disaster, and the current product line just isn't that interesting or exciting.

honestly, the Integra Type R was the last Honda of any note that was worthy of... note. I guess the NSX soldiered on until 2005.

 

now they (Honda and Acura) are just mediocre pretty good at everything type of car.

 

Well, I take that back, if I had to get a minivan, the Odyssey is where it's at.

 

All that said, a well tuned turbo 4 is much better than a v6. more efficient, more power, smaller packaging, lighter weight. just overall better.
