About the NSA driving interest into Honda/Acura again- that is what i was talking about. It's a great boom, and I don't think they need much else. They have strayed away from the small, fun, economical cars of the past, but so has pretty much anyone who started that way (VW, I'm looking at you).
They both do, but cars more aimed at the sport segment seem to be lacking from both. For VW, they went the way of technology and features, pushing the GTI price higher and higher (and it's still based on a Golf, which is fine but they lack a Scirocco/Corrado successor in this market. Not saying that's good or bad, just the fact). For Honda, they dropped all their sporting vehicles (which is the intent of the current conversation), yes they still have the Civic Si (same vein as the GTI, based on the "lower" model, noting intently sporty).
I wonder what would happen if VW made a Scirocco-like version of the Polo, or Honda, the same with the Fit. RWD would be nice for us, but even just a car that splits the line of sporty/economical more in the favor of sporty would be interesting.
