The Truth about Cars has a front spy shot of the refreshed Civic here: http://www.thetruthaboutcars.com/201...-big-in-japan/

I feel sorry for the company that Honda has become. Soichiro Honda must be rolling in his grave. On the other hand, enthusiasts make up less 1% of the market because all the other 99% care about is looks/status and reliability. It's too bad that double-wishbones, ergonomics, and quality materials have been sacrificed for girth, flat-out ugly styling (at least Hondas in the 80s/90s have aged gracefully), and gimmicky interiors.

Out of curiousity, what kinda cars / models does japan have that we don't that seem to be shadowing out the civic?

Never knew japan would have such different views when america seemed to be buying these things like mad

I'm in japan right now and I was really surprised to have seen only 2 civics so far in 10 days.
There are so many better Hondas here though.
Seen 3 euro r's so far.
Honda oddessy's here are SICK, and about the same size as the stream.





DB8r? Honda integra 4door type-r

Actually very rare to see any of those "real" cars here.
The one's I've seen were always parked while I was on the train so I haven't been able to get a picture.
