I like it.... So many are comparing it to the WRX/STI hatch, from memory envisioning the subaru I did too.
But then I looked up the images side by side and honestly they do not share very many similarities. Hood line, roof line, hatch shape... all completely different.

The civic looks far much better IMO, and I think aftermarket wise it will be awesome vehicle.
If I get an opportunity to get one, I will.

Wondering where it will end up price wise, and if the fact that its fwd will ruin the fun. Guess we will have to wait and see.

Not sure how I feel about the back end with that wing.
Anyone else think taking the wing off would make it look like an aggressive Prius?

That thing looks horrible.

Looks exactly like a 1997 tuner's wet dream. Just needs a FLOWMASTER and NEUSPEED sticker with TENZO wheels and its set !!

man I am glad someone here has some sense... this thing looks like complete poop.. looks like Celica from the late 80s with a bunch a crap on it and a wing that was ripped off a sail boat..

At least Honda smartened up a little by turbocharging more than jet skies but still no awd no care...
