Agreed... and a tragedy that they don't sell more

The clarity front end is better resolved with the chrome "lip" bellow the badge.

When you realize that the new Accord is so ugly that it makes the Clarity look good, you know things are dire in the Honda styling studios.

I disagree completely. But I think the civic does it better with that slight gap between the hood and the chrome. The treatment on the Accord is more like a chrome upper lip whereas the Civic reads more like teeth bling.

I think people who find this ugly are crazy. There are some polarizing details, but how someone dislikes those proportions and the overall cleanness to the body lines (completely NON Honda-like as of late) is beyond me.

The Clarity is an awkward slug with an awful DLO and grotesque detailing/body work. The Accord is much more cohesive and resolved. Those calling the Clarity better looking are only kidding themselves or deluded enough with the Honda-hate bandwagon.

The proportions of the new Accord are a bit ungainly due to the sheer ugliness of the nose which appears like it belongs on a car 25% bigger than the rest of the car. With a restyle of the nose, this could be saved.

The Clarity's front end does indeed look far more tragic than Accord's, and agree with Swiz, a front end redesign would assist the latter greatly (the Clarity is beyond help).

That thick character line on the flank reminds me of the previous generation Sonata. That was a nice design.
