I am aware of that, and I do find it very sad;

It was a very classic Benz element, but apparently it is not aggressive enough for the currnet theme among German brands, with all their love for...

I agree, the 508 is a looker, this took the wrong Peugeot design era as an inspiration. Due to that, the 508 like "LED blades" also look rather misplaced and wrong.

I'm in the apparent minority who much prefers the classic Mercedes grille, as it is really something no one has (probably except Rolls Royce nowadays). The star at the end of the hood is just...

I think Jaguar was in a difficult position: The X-Type had left a bad taste in most people's mouth (I don#t think it was a s bad as some magazines made it, btw.) so there was this shadow, and the...

Let'S not forget that there are rumors of other upcoming Toyota sports cars (like a MR2 replacement), that could be a full Toyota;

SO is the Transit name, a pretty old and strong brand; But it doesn't mean that they need to build it at a Ford plant (what the unions would care about), but say a co-developed chassis, or engines,...

It was ahead of it's time, but that doesn't make the Actyon (or whatever that was called) or any other of those fast back SUVs any prettier. The Urus in flesh really just looks very VAG corporate...

I think the Ranger as Amarok has already been more or less confirmed, and certainly the archaic Caddy (released some 15 years ago) will need a replacement in not too far future; Technically, the VW...

You could name the engines they use in Lexus as examples of fine engines (the F-Sport NA V8, e.g.).

That said, the BMW inline 6 is teh least of my worries, I just think that 340hp max (and a 200hp...

Well given not even the lower half of the dash (or the steering wheel itself) has been changed, we can safely assume no hard points were touched at this facelift

Very obviously a reskin, but somehow better proportioned than the China Passat using the same detailing (and, obviously, used in the teaser sketches)

A good design should look good not only in heavily edited press pics taken form a precisely said angle, but generally; It's however hard to imagine that this atrocity will look good in any pic.

I like the commitment to make it sharper mechanically, and at the same time a bit less tacky than the version with all the carbon fiber bits outside; A development in the right direction
