As you mentioned, it wasn't sold in the US, though it likely wouldn't have met our crash standards. Additionally the engine it had was nothing to write home about (63 hp from a three-cylinder), contrasting to this proposed high-powered four-cylinder which would certainly cost more.

Again, I didn't say it couldn't be done. I'm just saying that layout, that output and that price aren't likely to be seen together at a Honda dealership.
