Honda has taken their CR-Z sporty-ish(?)/hybrid coupé and given it a mild facelift, with the hopes of taking it from selling like hotcakes that have been urinated on by a dog to selling like hotcakes that have hardly any urine on them at all. And, from what we can tell, the design inspiration came from a Nintendo game.
Nintendo is a company in love with its past, or at least the popular parts of its past. Except for Super Mario Bros. 2, a game the company doesn't talk about much.
