A disappointingly thin chrome strip on the back.

The Crider will compete with cars such as the Volkswagen Sagitar, Citroen C4L, and the upcoming Hyundai Mistra and Ford Escort. All are relatively small sedans with a premium look & feel.

Finally a good look at the interior and it all loox very Honda-high-tech which large blue screens and dials. Materials seem to be of high quality and Honda used a lot of alu-accents for a modern look. No fake wood here!

Why can’t Japanese automakers ever make anything less offensive to the eyes!

There is a Honda dealer next to my place and they have been advertising this car for a long while, the other day they had one in there and I can to go see what car had this horribly stupid name attached to it. This cae basically seems like a small Crosstour without a hatch back, and with that 1.8 auto its going to be pokey.

Looks like Kia Optima in front, Hyundai Genesis in rear – it seems now all the asian cars are benchmarking each other
