I didn’t even know there was a Montreal Auto Show and, apparently, that’s because it’s the same week as the Detroit Auto Show (the Montreal Auto Show should get a new events planner). So it’s no surprise that those in Montreal don’t expect many surprises because most of the concepts get unwrapped south of the border.
Well, Honda gave the Montreal a big surprise.
Honda unveiled its new concept car named the GEAR, sub-compact car built for Gen Y lifestyles: “simple and utilitarian, but also customizable, connected and full of personality.”
Dave Marek, Design Director at Honda R&D Americas explained: “Subcompact cars are usually either utilitarian, but uninspiring or they’re fun, zippy cars that are impractical and too expensive for the Gen-Y buyer. GEAR Concept tears down those walls – it’s practical but fun, customizable, connected and affordable. Everything that young, discerning urban buyers would want in a car.”
While cars that actually go into production tend to look a bit different than the concept car, we are excited to see what the Honda GEAR will look like on the outside and inside and what the engine specs will be.
