The Type R is as niche as can be. I think that those in the market for that car couldn't care less for a new generation.

Looks 99% like the concept. Should be another home run.

How is this yawn inducing??

The sedan looks like a hatchback too, and more attractive. Why not offer it with an optional hatch and call it a day?

I don't think I'll ever be able to un-see how Crosstour it looks in profile.

I agree, the sedan appears to look better, at least in pictures. I have to say I'm not entirely sold on the new Civic's design - its front and rear ends appear to be too busy, and the front I find awkward and unattractive the more I look at it.

It goes on sale here in Australia in June, and so, I'll be keen to see whether it looks better in the metal.

The new Civic would look better if it just had less going on with the design. The basic profile is handsome, but the bumpers and grille are really fussy, and the wheels are over-designed and leave the car looking under-tired.

That's exactly what Ford does with the Mondeo. They save money since the sedan and hatch have all the same side glass. Some customer clinic somewhere must have told Honda that the Civic SI/Type-R audience wanted a chunkier design.

The trunk is also very fussy, w/ strange cutines (I presume to reduce the visual "weight" of a high trunk); I was stuck behind one in traffic yesterday, and I had a good look at the trunk. ;)

The interior is similarly jarring (weird cutlines where various materials come together).

Reminds me a bit of the Bangled BMWs -- nice shape, disturbing detailing. It's simply not, IMHO, particularly elegant.
