What's ugly about it..? Looks a lot like the TL design which has been a hot
seller and widely-respected car for several years.

The heavy grill is ugly. Honda has had such tasteful designs in the
past, but these heavy grills that have been appearing on the SUVs are
really ugly. Now, to see one on a TSX is a real disappointment.

I don't think it looks as bad as it does on the RL. That's going to be
one ugly car when it's released.

Now if Honda/Acura could put leather/leatherette which is the same
quality as in the Lexus/BMW lines I would be first to get it even with
a downgrade to 200hp in the 2009.

Agree with your comment about the grille, reminds me of Cadillac for
some reason. I can see why they did it, though. Without it the look
would be very monotone and the car would just blend in with all it's
competitors.

Looks OK to me.

I'm not totally in love with this stealth design theme, but it's
competently done.

With a slightly different grill, it looks just like my '05 Accord.

Sure does. Wonder if it is bigger as well -- with a V6.
