It sucks the sedan doesn't have it but if you look at the coupe, it helps to give the coupe more of a sporty edge, expected as that's what they did with the concept.I'm a bit disappointed that the tail lights don't have the light bar that goes across the trunk. While the tail light still look cool on the sedan, I just thought the light bar was a really cool design touch.

There is a balance that brand's have to find between making each model distinctive and also having a design continuity that makes the brand recognizable. There is definitely a trend towards more design conformity, and I bet it has something to do with costs and time as well.Sadly that's the new reality, lack of creativity from model to model and it's not just Honda but just about the whole industry, even all the way up to vehicles well into the 6 figure range.
