My guess is that Honda wants to get as much air around the sides as it can since it's the easiest path to the rear--------------.Looking at concept cars with completely smooth undersides,carmakers still lower and rake the vehicles at higher speeds to limit undercar flow.--------------- Without an "active" front airdam (reads complication,cost,reliability issues) the little dams are a way to passively tune airflow as best they can while respecting ground clearance,curbs,parking-lot barriers,etc..
