Honda’s simpler days…
They even said it on their ads: “We make it simple”.
They also looked simple. In a good way. I mean look at all of these!
Honda used to be special, in that simple way. Which helped them acquire a huge following in the US.
Now they are just another popular brand. They designs are overly complicated.
Too many lines everywhere, chrome bits, fake grilles and vents. It borderlines on the vulgar.
Look at the cars above. The first Accord was great! And only a hatchback for a while.
Even the early Civics. And the tiny “coupe” was a complete original.
There is a little bit of hope in these recent concepts. They “say” Honda.
The small Urban EV above will see production in a coupe of years.
Let’s hope the Sports EV follows suit.
And especially, let’s hope they inspire there designs of the next generation Civic and Accord.
