How about that?

Honda feels a need to sell some more 6-cylinder cars?

Nice engineering, but just as ugly as the new Accord and other recent
models from the big H, sadly. All those meaningless swoopy lines and
blind-spot producing C pillars. Since they gave the Accord the big butt
and cat-eye headlights in 02, all their corporate style has been going
downhill with each new release. (not that the other brands are any
better, mind you. they all look alike, and they all are ugly. what idiot
decided that high beltlines, and rear doors that catch all the road crap
from the rear wheels, were a good idea? They all look like giant
HotWheels cars.)

What's wrong with six cylinder powered cars? My '01 works just fine.

Spoken like the bed-wetting liberal you are. Corporations and
conservatives "think", they don't "feel" when it comes to strategic
marketing decisions...

Because they owe nothing to the world as a whole, only to the wealthy
investors.

In fact most stockholders are folks of modest means-- people like me and
you who own mutual funds, have a pension funded by some institutional
investors like CalPers who owns a bunch of the stock, etc. And what kind
of idiocy drives thinking-- no, make that feeling-- that anyone or
anything "owes" anything to the "world as a whwole" --- whatever that
the heck that means.

A company should obey the laws of whatever country it's in, strive to
maximize the long term investments of its owners, provide a good place
to work for the employees, be a good corporate citizen and think
strategically about the future.

Beyond that, they should leave the tree-hugging and whale-saving to wet
noodles like you...

Well then, what's the thinking here?

Honda makes a lot of hay out of having the best company mileage. The
six is already available in the Accord. This is just another body
style with only the six, and optional 4wd. Seems to impinge on Acura
markets. On second look, it's even closer to the TL sheet metal, just
rounded the back a bit more.

Me, I wish they'd add a V8 to the line just to sell a few hundred of
them a year, maybe bring back the NSX, but I guess they don't find
that an economic move.

Can't see any way this makes sense on thinking, so must be some kind
of feeling behind it.

Have a nice day.

J.

cringe - yet another person who's afraid of honda's red line and
poisoned by detroit's propaganda and determination to stick to cheap
crappy 1950's technology.

but here's an opportunity for you to show you can think for yourself:
all else being equal, which do you think delivers the most power - a 4
liter v8 at 3000 rpm or a 2 liter i4 at 6000 rpm?

and just for devilment, why are all those big commercial diesels you see
out there on the highways only i6's? 40-odd tons of truck on a 6% grade
needs power doesn't it? why no v8's?
