The shield front end (and what's below it) kill it for me.
Honda could maybe pull that off. Not sure if Acura pricing can!

That was the first time I've actually LAUGHED seeing a new model. This thing is hideous! beats the X6 without a doubt!
On a side note. I've been having fun lately counting the number of buttons in the interiors of Honda/Acura vehicles. On a quick count, there's more than 55 on the steering wheel+dash.
WTF does ZDX mean anyway? It's like Acura just comes up with a random 3 letters when naming their vehicles.

When the Acura shield is the least offensive part of the car, you know things are bad.
I guess car designers have finally realized rear seat passengers are headless.

We are FAR from the normal buyer group. If anyone can make a... uhhh... unique-looking vehicle sell well it's BMW & Honda.
Seriously, though. People here bitch about not enough HBs and when they come, we bitch some more. For me... if these HB variants take off, that just means MORE variants of HBs will come. Does TCL NOT recognize that simple fact?
BTW... I hardly ever make negative comments, but damn that is funky... and not the good funky. When Acura came out with the last gen TL styling, I thought Cadillac's A&S chiseled theme would have a good long term challenger for that kind of styling. I was wrong.
How could they go from the last gen TL, and current MDX (which I think is a very handsome SUV, would be my first choice in the luxo SUV market) to these abominations.
How is the current TL selling? Surely they must see it's not doing well... I can't drive without seeing 5-6 last Gen TL's every trip and have only seen 2 of the new ones in the flesh since they were released... Point being you would think they would realize the styling likely isn't being embraced and steer the ship.
Oh well... again for good measure.
