From a tech perspective, very nice and the interior is beautiful. However I have never liked Acuras due to their long front overhangs. Hopefully Acura can get this right. An interesting conceptWell IMO you have to look squarely at Government Regulators for "Safety", particularly in and FOR the USA as it is the largest car market, so what the US wants it gets and so does the rest of the world!.. I guess you know that from the start MY2003 (for memory) all new cars not already in production had to have the following, a 3 inch "AIR" gap between Hood and engine, then a huge gap between the passengers head and top roof or windscreen rail (so they won't hit their precious head IF THE HAVE NO SEAT BELT ON!!), I am serious this is now a design rule, the next is MY2011 and rear end crash requirements, bigger and thicker looking rear ends, look at the 2010 Mazda 3 sedan and new KIA's to get an idea. SO, given that as a designer you have to have this tall Hood, A pillar and now C pillar area, the smaller the car the more UGLY they look, extra large cars don't look as bad. SO, there you have it, you try and design a car with just some of these 'Design" requirements by law...it is a bloody nightmare. The model is definitely meant to expand the range of the Accord nameplate, Honda's best selling vehicle in the United States. The Crosstour design features a higher seating position for the passengers but also keeps the crossover sitting low on its suspension. The new front grille and the beefy rear end give the car a more toughened look - a feature Honda likely hopes will attract buyers looking for something more sturdy than a regular sedan.
