Honda Gear concept
If we consider that demand for small and affordable cars is in great expansion, it is not surprise that Honda has plans to reinforce its line-up of subcompact models. In that order, Japanese auto maker present new concept car simply called Gear on the last Auto Show in Montreal. It is designed especially for youth drivers with limited resources, so we can expect that Honda’s new budget car will look something like this concept.
Honda Gear concept design
This model is designed by Honda’s Advanced Design Studio in downtown Los Angeles. We can say that Gear Concept is designed primary for young (so called Y-generation) drivers, so it is expected some of future models like CR-Z or next Fit will be based on this concept car. The first impression is that car look very good. According to Honda spokesman, the whole aspect of this car is inspired by the fixed-gear bicycles, although we can’t see how exactly this concept is in connection with mentioned term. Anyway, this car looks good.
It has sleek and simple design and it is clear that Honda Gear concept is designed in the same manner as current Honda’s models. It is full of very stylish details such as, for example, rear windscreen which wraps around the C-pillars at the rear profile. Together with Pagani-style quad exhausts, it makes very nice and stylish rear end, which is probably the most striking part of new concept’s look.
Honda Gear concept future
Well, how this is a concept car, we don’t have any information about what is under the hood. We didn’t see interior of the Honda Gear concept too. However that is not a point about concept car. Honda Gear concept is designed to show us a direction of future Honda models.
This is company’s idea how new subcompact urban vehicle should look. It is very stylish but also it should be very practical. However, the most important about this kind of a car is to be affordable, because it is designed especially for younger drivers and their budget is very often limited. All in all, we can say that this is very brave move by Honda.
