MICKEY KAUS: “Why did Honda have to design its new hybrid to look exactly like the Toyota Prius? I like the Prius’ appearance, but a lot of people don’t. This seems like a missed opportunity to create a new trademark design. Timid. … Meanwhile, Mercedes’ styling isn’t timid, it’s vegetative. The new E-class looks exactly like you worried it would look, only drearier.” That’ll help ’em sell cars in a tough market!
