Honda was in a bad way up until recently. The company was producing a lot of rather staid products that didn't really speak to anyone — except some Honda loyalists. Though It seems like the company is righting its ship. Just check out the refreshed Honda Accord, all-new Civic and all-new Pilot. It looks like the company is aiming its sights higher.

In addition to Honda, Acura lost its way for a bit and it seems the organization is following big brother's lead. While the all-new TLX may not be my exact cup of tea, they sure are moving out of dealer showrooms. And the company's sport-utility vehicles have a nice following that many other luxury automakers wish they could cultivate.

So, what's next from Honda's luxury division? It's readily apparent that the 2016 Detroit Auto Show (NAIAS) will mark the debut of an all-new design language the company will bring forward in its next-generation products.

Though the "A" brand only released a shadowy side profile image of a sedan, there's no question it certainly looks more edgy than what we've seen from the automaker in recent years. Will it go as extreme as Nissan and Infintii, as well as Toyota and Lexus in the design department? We'll find out soon enough.
