Honda's clean-sheet approach created a bigger, brighter and more refined prestige family sedan that is strong on safety, comfort and quality.
Though structurally fresh, Honda made ostensibly small mechanical changes, reviving the previous Euro's smallish 2.4-litre engine and retaining a six-speed manual or auto box.
Within a heavier body the engine is marginally thirstier but the Euro's fuel economy is only a fraction of the story.
This is a premium Japanese car - one of the few Hondas actually made in japan - that rides with European solidity with predictable cornering that acknowledges its taut chassis.
It is an impressive step forward and rides and drives so well it is better than Europeans at almost twice the price.
