The wing mirrors aren’t mirrors
It comes, as standard, with cameras instead of traditional wing mirrors… which is a first if you don’t count the VW XL1. Not the cameras, the standard bit. And as Honda will tell you, the benefits are many – a near four per cent reduction in drag, less wind noise, better visibility in bad weather, a wider field of vision and a more width-restrictor-friendly girth – but they’re not quite the leap forward this list suggests.
For starters they’re mounted low and angled too far down (we couldn’t find any way to adjust them) so you get a wonderful view of the rear wheel arch, but not necessarily of the traffic following behind. You can switch between normal and wide view, the latter distorting the outer-third of the screen to give you a wider field of vision, but it doesn’t improve things much. Not a deal-breaker, but room for improvement.
