Very little on the front end to protect the driver. It's too short on the front.
And the trunk is very short too. Not really impressed.

its just the angle of the picture. Check out the current styling of the acura TL, the tail pipes are similar to that

Still not feeling the front. The A pillar looks way too sloped (it's gonna turn into a Beetle soon) and the front grill just doesn't do it for me.
But I'm liking what I see from the rear on both the coupe and sedan models.
I hope interior pics come out soon.

First link: Rear looks very Audi.
Magazine spread: Rear looks like a direct ripoff of the Saab 9-3 Sport Sedan
Last link: looks sorta like subaru (black) or nissan/audi (greyish silver)

looks like Honda's playing the copy-cat game now. ripping cues from every other car manufacturer out there, compare these to the pics from the link that belfour posted.

front end on the black sedan looks like it was from a Saturn Ion

Ion:

doors/side profile on the sedan is from the Mazda3

rear end on the sedan is from the Subaru Legacy rear

the rear of the grey Civic coupe (im assuming) looks is from a combination of the Saturn SC2 coupes rear end and the fender styling of the Infiniti G35 Coupe

SC2-C and G35C:

Honda needs to be more original.

dj_peanuts, no offence but those analogies are abit of a stretch in my mind ...
cars can't deviate too much in terms of design from the status quo these days, if they were to at least make an attempt to sell, no?
the choices pretty much boils down to 1) retro or 2) slightly change/evolve what everybody else has
