Looks like KIA

I agree.
I too hope that doesn't come here, not that I'll be buying the current model, but I'd hate to get myself confused with seeing that USDM version and a Kia on the roads here while I'm cruising :p

people do agree with me once in a while.. :)

15-08-2005, 12:08 AM
Oh Look! It's a KIA!!! :D

15-08-2005, 01:21 AM
man.. Hondas seriously going downhill in the visual department (while nissans going up ><").. at this rate the next gen Euro will look shit house

15-08-2005, 12:24 PM
Pos!!! Daymmm Thats Not Good.. It Looks Like Edward Scissor Hands Made It

16-08-2005, 01:32 AM
yuk. I agree about the Kia bit. The V6 is good though. Should have been an option for the current Odyssey

16-08-2005, 01:54 PM
man the current modle looks heaps better

16-08-2005, 03:23 PM
I think that's styled by Honda US. We get our JDM odyssey goodness. Now all we need is a different engine.

16-08-2005, 04:31 PM
Yup USDM Odysseys dont come down under anyways, so nothing to worry about.

16-08-2005, 05:34 PM
looks a whole lot like a kia or hyundai to me!

16-08-2005, 05:41 PM
There's something about the US and front grills. All cars in US, no matter what class has a huge grill. And when i was in Florida, there were heaps of the exact same model of cars. Oh and Mitsubishi Eclipse's engine sounds like a Daihatsu Terio's, I'm serious!

17-08-2005, 12:25 PM
i think the americans like that type of styling. In your face with big features/ high visual impact etc. To me it's just damn ugly and looks cheap. Different strokes for different fokes i guess.
