To me it looks utterly over designed. At least in EDM spec.

The 182bhp turbo engine is interesting though.

Agreed, but I feel almost obligated to try it out, it's a Honda hatchback, I've been wishing for one since forever. Honda also screwed up, they packaged the least well equipped versions with the stick and the higher end ones without it. And then they turn around and ask why the stick doesn't sell. I hope they package the Si version with higher end equipment.

On the other hand, that might be in my favor, I don't like leather seats anyway.

Man I'm grumpy with Honda.

I think that the problem with Honda is that we all remember the late 80s and early 90s Hondas.

Every car Honda gets in the market is benchmarked against them and immediately proceeds to lose preposterously.

They do not poses the simplicity, lightness and sheer ingenuity those old Hondas had.

However, those old Hondas are gone forever. And they are never coming back. Ever.

Therefore unless we move on we will always be grumpy.

There are plenty of other examples in the market. And all contain a brilliant 80's car compared to modern fat example.
