I think if Honda really wants to Claw back it's share of the 1.8 market that Grande has taken, they should keep their pricing as follows:
1.8 Top of the Line: 25L exc WHT (With Leather/NAV)
1.5: 26.5 exc WHT (1.5L Premium for New Engine and Remote Starter)
These prices are inline with the 9th Gen and would allow Atlas to recover their Investment over a large number of units sold. And anyway, price increase option is always there once the new model has been established in the market.
