Still not sure it would convince me to the 11th gen but at least it's more of a hatch and not a gran coupe. Pretty neat idea.

Kept the faux exhaust tips?
I think he wasn’t swapping anything out, just changing the shape. IMO he did a really good job. Maybe use real dual exhaust tips and there you go.

And watch everyone complain that the boot is tiny and the car looks like every other hatch on the road.

the 11th gen hatch looks great as it is. I remember everyone complaining about the fake vents on the 10th gen for years so Honda gets rid of them and now people complain it doesn’t look like a 10th gen anymore.

^-I totally agree with this. There would be a loss of volume in the hatch and that is not what they want. Being able to use doors for both is an advantage for production.

Not bad. But I'm digging the Honda version though. Not as much as my 10th gen, but it does look good!

I like the overall look of sketchmonkey but I'm not sure it would as practical as 11 gen nor add any cu. ft in the back(maybe less). Man, I miss the 43 cu. ft cargo of my old xB1!

I like both versions. I think Honda did a good job in making what amounts to a gran coupe hatch that is stylish and unique to the segment. The sketch monkey, while more traditional, looks good too, my only two changes I would've made to his design would be less space between the rear window and brake lights, and a deeper roof spoiler to sweep back the roofline a bit.
