It's mostly interior designs that are criticized. And people saying they aren't taking enough risk with the design, not enough emotion in them, like they were used to from GM of the 50's and 60's. Honda on the other hand rarely has an inspiring design with a handfull of exceptions. I see a hint of Grand Prix in the back. However, I see more elements of the current Accord Coupe and the Civic Si Concept.
If you look at the first pic you can see that there are four doors, so this definately isn't the Civic coupe. That is suposed to stay pretty close to the Si concept. And the all red tail lights aren't the facelift, even though that is a common "facelift" for Honda's (new tail lights, not all red) From what I have read, an extensive facelift was ordered after the public disdain of the current sedan's back end treatment.
