Interesting you are saying that, I just read that the Honda Accord actually got smaller this year, and more nimble compared to the previous generations. I'm not trying to compare BMW and Honda head-to-head, but it's refreshing seeing a manufacturer actually trying to reverse the trend. Hopefully BMW gets the message one day, but so far they are still going the road of the bigger footprint and more disconnected drive.
