Back in July I wrote a post about the Honda Crosstour and the troubling direction the design seemed to be taking.

This morning, Honda released photos of the Accord Crosstour and, well, yeah.

A few words come to mind. Hideous. Retarded. Unnecessary.

I would much rather have received this (the Euro-market Accord Estate):

One of the things I hate about living in the U.S. – the general revulsion toward hatches and wagons. And I don’t even think it’s a real revulsion. As the Mini Cooper, Honda Fit, Toyota Yaris, Scion xB and xD, Subaru WRX, Mazda3, Kia Soul, VW Jetta Sportwagen and more and more cars prove every year, people crave options beyond a sedan or an SUV. But manufacturers still repeat that “Americans don’t like wagons” mantra. And then shove crap like this at us.
