New Honda AZFUSION

Have you seen the new Honda Insight? It looks like it was born from a 3 car Accident, The front resembles a Ford Fusion, the sides look like a Prius and the rear.. the funniest of all, looks like a Pontiac Aztek.

The insight's nothing more than a huge automotive design mess.

Because it's got an "H" on the front and has a hybrid badge.

Funny, the shape looks a lot like that of the Volt to me.

Looks better than the Prius anyway, at least.

This is another example of Japanese auto design. They all look as if an ex-industrial designer penned them...you know, guys that used to design washers, dryers, refrigerators, etc. No classic style whatsoever. Junk.

Haha, you're right. All this time I've seen the clear copying of the Prius, but I do see the whole 3 car mash-up now. Honda does a lot of things right, but design is NOT one of them.

Not really, the Volt's front is pure Chevy, the side view is not so humpback like the Prius and Insight, and the rear while similar does not have the Aztek look to it. To me it looks more like a traditional car.
