    Honda's Godzilla to land in China

    Are you mentally prepared? Got your sunglasses on? Your "Yikes!"filter activated? Don't know what happened. Perhaps it is the brainchild of an already mad scientist who happened to be in the area when the Fukushima nuclear power plant started leaking.

    This is the Honda Crider; it is going to be launched in China. Better watch out, or it will find its way to the U.S.

    Wow, overuse of character lines. Not sure if the lighting is overaccentuating the lines, where was the adult designer to say "no" to the young designers that went overboard? Or was the adult designer getting senile and thought it looked good? I thought the Chinese in general preferred understated, this is not understated. I'd say it can't even attract the minority that would want overstated, as this is a clear case of "bad overstated".

    Does GMC get royalties for the headlight design?

    I like it. Kind of design that could probably look good in bright copper color. I wonder if this is just a decontended model.

    EDIT: I just realized something. When they said they cancelled planning of a larger Civic due to the economic situation, I wonder if this was supposed to be the new Civic. Haha. Maybe they used the work they put into that project into this project.

    Re: Honda's Godzilla to land in China

    Not bad, not great. I hate to say this, not wanting to encourage the 22z crowd, but the wheels look a wee bit, uh, wee. Are they 15s?

    At first glance I thought this might be an Acura. The PR flacks call it a sub-Accord for the Chicommie market. Think chrome.



    For your information, the name Crider is coming from the Criteria and Dream. The new 2014 Honda Crider is going to be positioned between Honda Accord and Civic.

    The car has the astonishing chrome coating on the front grille which works well in China and attracts lots of younger Chinese consumers.

    First engine will boast the 1.8 liter paired with 5-speed manual or an automatic gearbox. The second engine will be the 2.0 liter mated with manual or automatic transmission.


    LOL. Criteria and Dream. Oh boy.

    Astonishing chrome coating. Oh boy.

    Are they still using their 4As in the Chinese market? Nothing but the best, for our Chinese Comrades who like to sack our dealerships over a couple of islands that even seals (the marine mammal type) don't want.
