Default Honda Gear concept explored at Montreal Auto Show

Filed under: Concept Cars, Hatchback, Honda, Design/Style, Montreal Auto Show



Our friends at Autoblog Canada have just come away with a closer look at Honda's surprise Gear Concept at the Montreal Auto Show. The little three-door hatchback is arguably the automaker's first real shot at the North American city car market (the Gear is much smaller than the Fit) and may be an indication that Honda is getting serious about going after Scion on this side of the world after the CR-Z hybrid failed to deliver.

Designers also wanted to show that a car can be both fun and practical.
