      I like it more than the concept, but the lights are still wayyyy too big

      Audi is the only company still making good looking cars these days.

      Rear looks like some Dodge/Jeep thing.
      Someone can post comparisons.

      Not a fan. I'm not in the target demographic though, so I guess it doesn't really matter.

      Seriously, who is in charge of Honda design?
      Specifically, grilles for USDM cars?
      The tail reminds me of a Pathfinder, and the nose...horrid.

      well.. looks better then the concept. more utilitarian then an image car. There's nothing really offensive about it. It's a "i need to haul my kids and stuff around without fuss" kind of car.
      it get's a "meh" from me.

      No fan of the nose but overall it's better then the concept and it will be very good at medium-SUV duties.
      Honda really set the bar high with the current Pilot so it will be interesting on how they've improved on it.

      The pilot always seems to be 5 or so years behind current styling trends.
      Also, was this at other people's auto show? I know there was a prototype pilot at the chicago auto show this year, looked identical to this one IIRC.

      That looks terribly dated... Actually, it looks like it should have been the final refresh of a version which precedes the current Pilot... odd, imo.

      There.. all fixed. not too bad and a pretty easy fix which the aftermarket can easily provide.

      What's with the shift knob and Toyota Camry-esque blue around the center console? I want to see the Honda fanbois that based Toyota for that explain away this one

      that center stack of 8.5x11's in the center console answers your question. More space for larger stuff right up front. personally.. i think it's a great idea.

      X2. Although it looks weird,when your model is 100% automatics, it adds some nice space.

      By no means a honda fan boy.
      But my guess is, its one of those blue-ish peel off film left on by the factory to protect a shiny surface underneath (?)

      Why would anybody call you a Honda fan boy for saying that?
