I really like Hondas, but based on looks alone, I'd pick the clk. Since the fad now seems to be sharp edged / angular body seams, a car with a few rounded edges like the CLK actually stands out!

I know Honda's taken more than a few ideas from BMW in the past too...

Two cars share almost all the major lines, but with the Accord opting for smooth neatly pressed detail work while the MB tosses in tons of added stuff to try and dress it up.

In this case I'm with Amir - the cleaner look of the Accord seems nicer. I still laugh at how similar they are.

The last Honda Civic had previous CLK rear end design cues.

I'd hate to be on the Mercedes design team right now. Who's going to buy a $50k Honda?

The design gap between the leading edge premium auto makers (BMW, Mercedes, Jaguar, etc.) and the Asian copies used to be about one design generation (the early 90's Sentra looked much like the mid 80's BMW E30), now its become instantaneous.

With this, you can see how important for a premium maker to stylistically differentiate itself and the only viable solution is to jump well beyond the current public's sensibilities in design.

I'm not saying I love the new 7 or the Z4, but to think back I really hated the current Prelude when it came out, now I think its good looking. So maybe there's hope.
