OMG slightly sexist... I'm sorry but when the majority of women WEAR pink or accessorize with pink, especially that shade, its not sexism, its called psychographics. Someone did their homework, especially for Japan.

American websites trying to export our nonsensical sense of 'moral'

Sorry rant off, but that small interjection has no need to be there other then to draw attention to how progressive said author is. He had to include it or else he would of been called sexist for not calling out the, er, "sexism"

Not everything that is for girls has to be pink, but making something for girls that is pink is not sexist. In Japan pink is really popular with the ladies so I think that it is just a nice design, not a sexist one.

Honda has a pink Fit that's only sold in Japan. The Fit's pink is a little more...uhm..subtle...than the one pictured on the HR-V. I've never been crazy about pink, but I wouldn't mind the wrinkle preventing windshield. ;)

The $17,500 car, currently only being sold in Japan, has loads of lady-friendly features. Apart from pink aesthetics and a dainty heart to replace the apostrophe in "She's," design features include: A windshield that helps prevent wrinkles, and a "plasmacluster" air conditioning system that Honda says will improve skin quality.

Back OT, the Victorians regarded pink as a strong masculine colour and was thus associated with boys until its popularity began to decline around the mid 1930's.

Around the same time, blue was associated with females as it was regarded as a pale, soft colour, more associated with the feminine character.

Trying getting away with that today......

Not really my style. I grew up in the days of muscle cars with high cams and low gears. Seeing the Asian cars with small engines and buzzing bees for exhaust just doesn't do it for me, personally. Give me a 1969 AMX with a 401 Police Interceptor with a 4:56 rear end any day.

Lol...

With a 6 speed manual OD trans, large 4 wheel disk brakes, EFI, modern aftermarket adjustable front suspension with rack and pinion steering, modern aftermarket adjustable rear suspension with a bulletproof 9" aftermarket rear axle.
Reinforced frame/unibody and a 6 point roll bar.

Modern front road racing seats with modern harnesses, full aftermarket dash with gauges.

I think that covers it!
