I know that the US is different; But, on a global scale, it was a success, especially in "no discount needed" markets like Asia and middle east. People there actually specifically liked the "big"...

Actually in Europe, they did not; Also it seems that particularly in Asia it was a true hit, selling by the boat load; Yes, petrol heads hate it, and die hard BMW fans as well (though usually die...

Proportions and shape are rather nice, but that fake 3rd window, especially without chrome surrounding, looks like it came straight from a Chevrolet Cruze rental car. Also those LED DRLs look very...

I agree; I think it does have vibes of the SsangYong (that was clearly too early to the hatchback SUV party), and I would say it does look a bit better than the - even weirder - Model X, but I...

In theory, this would be possible; In the last weeks, since the first pictures emerged, the feedback was mostly negative; I remember that back in 2007, the Scirocco was delayed for a last minute nip...

Agreed, I think all grilles have a sweet spot size wise, and just like the BMW kidneys, oversizing this grille makes it look comically wrong. But here, at this size, it works rather well, and better...

Fully agreed, the current lineup is not the strongest;

I get that this is a trike, which means it doesn't fall under most safety regulations for cars, but no headrests or seat belts are nevertheless a bit too retro for my taste;

I guess this keeps the pricing proportion of a real Bugatti to normal cars alive in the children segment ;)
