During the press conference, Seiji Kuraishi, President of HCMI, said, "Including this Concept D, which is a proposal for a new value that only Honda can provide as the pioneer of the SUV market in China. We would like to continue providing attractive products equipped with our advanced technologies to our customers in China. Toward this end, we will accelerate the localization of our business in China."

While we don't know much about the Concept D, Honda says it will feature advanced safety technology, a spacious cabin, and a host of advanced features. A production version based on the Concept D will go on sale from both Guangqi Honda and Dongfeng Honda, and will be positioned as the flagship model of the Honda brand in China.

What do you think of the Concept D's styling? Should the U.S. market get something similar?
