It doesn't really look better or more modern than the current model to me. More like a cross between the 1st generation and Honda Civic.
It has lost something...
They now claim a 50 miles range for the EV mode. Which is only10 miles more than the current one. I was really expecting better. Like maybe 60 or 70 miles.
The new 1.5 Liter engine/generator gets a 41 MPG average rating. Which is fine.
It also seats 5.
But still no sunroof... I really was expecting a bit more for an all new 2nd generation.
