That was my thought when the first Acura EL was introduced here in Canada in 1996. It seemed to be a dressed up Gen6 Civic with just different grille and taillights (same body as the Civic so you could not tell if it was a Civic or EL from a distance). Why get a leathered-up Civic when you could get an Accord for the same price?
That has been my thought as the EL progressed through the Gen7 Civic, the Gen8 Civic and name-change to CSX, and now the ILX (which at least has a different body from the Civic).
