Personally I like the 11th Gen Hatch so far but the 10th Gen hatch is a beautiful model all though it is really out there.
Personally feel as though they did it because of how some people called it to boy racer. I also feel that in a way with Acura sedans being designed and tested in Japan...
These HQ photos make it look better but I think the one we saw in Japan showed more details of the vehicle then we see here. Also noticed that this one doesn’t have exhaust outlets like the Japanese model, this is probably a Diesel model for Europe or just a lower trim.
