How about this front fascia (grille)?

If you want to see what could have been the Accord front fascia, look no further than this: . Not perfect, but certainly much, much better, no?

Wow, your right, now that looks well thought out and ours looks half done.

Reminds of the CR-Z front grill.

Hate the chrome "unibrow" that extends right into the headlight.

Looks a bit better than the 10th gen front fascia look, but would still prefer to retrofit a 9th gen front grill.

how is the insight different from a Hybrid Accord? Sort of seems like the two cars might compete with each other for buyers?

It's universally hated. Honda calls this "Solid Wing Face." The name is as dumb as the look.

I read that the Insight is more Civic sized and will actually replace the Civic Hybrid in Honda's lineup.

The Insight will be positioned between the Civic and the Accord. It will use the Accord Hybrid system and be a slightly smaller four-door sedan than the Accord Hybrid, which is new for 2018.

The Insight just might take sales from the Accord Hybrid. In my case, I would choose it over the Accord, primarily because the Insight is smaller and better looking (to me) than the Accord.

Read about the 2019 Insight in the link below.

That seems to be correct. Honda says it's taking the place of a Civic Hybrid but is a little more spacious inside, that says to me it's a little bigger than the Civic but not as big as the Accord Hybrid. Kudos to Honda for finally getting in on the Hybrid Market, Toyota has been kickin' ass with Prius sales, it's time for some competition from Honda.
