It looks like the new bB with a front modified to look like an xB with an enlarged bumper. Personally I am not sure if the square face looks right with the round body.

Who knows where it came from, would be nice to read the small print.

yeah.. i can't tell anything from such a small picture... the front emblem even looks Honda-ish...

but rumors from my guys says it will resemble alot to the t2B concept as hotbox mentioned.

that pic looks like bB mixed with t2b


the new one will have a 2.4 , be larger in every dimension , get worse gas mileage , be faster but not by a lot , no 07 and newer 2.4's will be supercharged ( supposedly )


it would be VERY unlikely that i would buy the new one. i don't want the 2.4 period but that's just me.

What part of it looks like the t2B? I don't see the resemblance.

Just looks like a new bB with a front end designed to look like the current xB, and oversized wheels.

Maybe the 2.4L rumor mill is being fed by the Calty team to build a buzz in hopes of getting their version chosen? It's happened before in other industries.

the 2.4 is not a rumor mill. people want bigger and more power soo......

the wheels look t2b , the rear 3/4 of the car looks like the t2b but with four regular doors

The new bB has a "pinstripe" ridge that runs from the headlights to the rear, this thumbnail does too and the t2B doesn't. Also the bottom of the doors of the t2B are higher than the new bB and this thumbnail. Finally the hood of the t2B wraps into the fenders and the new bB and this thumbnail the hood is flat.

It's just a thumbail maybe from some JDM car tabloid so who knows.
