New Honda Avancier






That's right. Another SUV/Crossover thing from Honda.
Another ugly one.

At least the part where it says "for the Chinese market only" is good news.

The Avancier is a 5 seater that will be priced above the CR-V.
Powered by a new 2.0 Liter Turbo engine. Which will probably find its way under the hood of the next Accord.

There is nothing like this in the US lineup. Where Honda jumps from the CR-V to the 7/8 seater Pilot.
Nissan has the Murano while Toyota offers a 5 seater version of the Highlander.

This looks like a mash up of a bunch of designs from a few other manufacturers.
It has zero personality of its own.
It is so bad it's almost weird...

If the name sounds familiar, it is because Honda did produce a car named Avancier before.
It was a tall wagon based on the Japanese Accord and sold over there from 1999 to 2003.
A bit boring, but not ugly like this poor guy above.

Now, let us all get on our knees and pray for this thing to never make it to the US market.
Please....

"All new" Chinese Citroen C6




I guess this is the most Chinese Citroen ever.
Which is of course, not a good thing. If fact, quite terrible...

It is quite blasphemous. The last C6 was one of the most modern scan ever. While this should, at best, be a boring VW sedan.

I guess the Chinese market is super conservative and there is no room for anything fun.
I mean look at that interior. Not 100% ugly, but nothing that should be labeled as  Citroen.





Basically, this "C6" is based on a Chinese sedan from DongFen called the A9.
Which, itself, is based on the Citroen C5.
So, nothing all new.
And look, the DongFen version does look like a VW!

Let's hope this C6 is never sold outside of China...
