The horsepower bump is nice.

But the sedan is butt-ugly-- looks like it was designed by some 20-something
California surfer boy with body-piercings and flames painted on the side of
his computer case....

As they say, there's "no accounting for taste." I like how it looks, and
like it better than any of the '03's through '07's. This is why there are so
many different brands and models.

I'm in the same boat as you. I kind of like it. I'll have to reserve
judgment until I see it in person though. I didn't care for the new MDX in
pictures, but loved it when I saw it in person.

Look at that rear quarter panel and bumper-- they look like they were
fabricated with a dull axe then shaped with a sledge hammer and a piece of
2x4. The lower lip on the front bumper looks like the lower lip on Bubba
from Forest Gump-- and groove above it was shaped by hitting it with a 2
inch steel pipe. Finally, the tilted beltline looks like the designer was
half snorked when he drew it.....and it cuts right through the fuel door.
Sheez!!

Damn. That concept version was a hell of a lot better. I just knew it
would be no where near that, but I did not expect this. At least my 2005
won't look corny next to this one like I thought it would for the concept.

I would guess that 177 hp I4 will allow regular and get about the same
mileage as the current I4. The question is whether the 190 hp I4 will
perform at the same level of efficiency as the current I and on regular.
Doubt it. My old 01 Prelude with the 2.2 I4 at 195/200 hp required premium.

I would need to see the actual car. As was already mentioned by another
poster, there's no accounting for taste. I won't bore you with a list
of cars that I've seen(and in some cases bought) that looked quite
different when seen in person--some better, some worse. Not a good idea
to be guided by a picture. I do agree that the increased hp (and
displacement) is a plus but even there, the new numbers on paper may not
produce the expected performance improvement--got to see it in person.

The sedan looks like......a SATURN.

I wish they would reduce front-end overhang a little. That 190 hp 4-
cyl for the EX will be nice.
