Im guessing probably not, looks like they ditched the touch screen air con, LED headlights, tube LED tail lights and a few other options the RS has to keep costs down and its only the RS that got the rear disks in Japan (even the sports hybrid is still drum rear)

They appear to still used drums in the rear based on this photo:

Bummer. I know drums are sufficient but for maintenance purposes (and pad swaps) I'd prefer discs. That plus 50 hp in an Si version please ...

I don't think it's that bad in other colors, but I could do without the side crease and slightly less angular rear taillights.

That's the magic and mystery of Honda: I sort of agree, and yet I STILL WANT ONE! It looks full of purpose. It doesn't care what you think of its looks. (The 1st generation Xb was like this too). It's still going to do its Fit-type things, and better than anyone else.

I find that I like the looks of some other cars more (various small Kias come to mind), and yet those cars I do not want.

If I were designing the car, it would look totally different, but Honda is not making the car for me. It's making the car, and if it flips enough of my "Go" switches, I'll buy it. Looks pretty promising too.

I am not hot on the entire look especially the rear, and there IS something that made me think "Prius" when I went through the photos yesterday. But I'm still planning to get one, heh.
