Um, anybody else see the pinch of resemblence between these two in styling? Now that I've compared them, IMO it almost seems as Honda directly copied it over to the Coupe... which we ALL know would never happen:rolleyes:


Civic Front End...


Solara Front End...



Civic's Ass...

hummm... I think the civic came more form the TSX myself. The TSX has the more square looking lights that are on the civic.

Actually, I noticed this about a month ago. I wouldn't say they directly copied it, because it has more of a TSX look to it than a Solara, but I, too, noticed the similarities.

Dude, you are WAY off.
so it's not a perfect match, but how can you say I'm way off w/this? (BTW, I obv know Honda didn't steal the styling from the Solara if that's what you're referring too...)

I was talking to jandree22.

Just look at the pictures and you can see the non-resemblance. The curves don't even come close. Front end styling is totally different between the two.

I just don't see it.

I'm not knocking your idea completely down, just giving my own opinion. Someone else may agree with you.

I think that in order for a car to be a reasonably good looking coupe, it has to have certain styling elements. How else would Honda have designed the Civic Coupe without it being completely weird compared to everything else? People wouldn't like it if it were too unique.
