Oh, yay! A lightbar across the FRONT! That's just what we needed b/c we are all getting sick of lightbars across the trunk. ::sigh::

I agree. I've seen at least one in real life and, while handsome and striking, it doesn't look anything like a BMW and doesn't have the long, lean, sexy look of the Mercedes S-Class coupe or the...

Assuming the rear wing is real and not camo, it would have to be a hatch; otherwise, there isn't enough clearance to open the trunk! (which would very un-Honda)

A bit off topic, but I do wonder if...

I like the placement of the headlights b/c hopefully that'll reduce the glare for oncoming traffic (a common issue w/ SUVs). The grille looks okay for an SUV, I suppose, but I honestly feel like it...

Probably b/c that looks better than a plain badger/beaver/rabbit/whatever?

At the end of the day, this is still going to sell just fine b/c the car-buying public really only cares about a few...

I'll repeat what I said about the concept; this car doesn't look anything like a BMW. It's a nice Infiniti. If you slapped any Japanese or Korean badge on this car, I'd believe it. The profile...

Agreed. The Audi grille was simply (and horrifically) large, but the proportions of the grille, in isolation, were fine.

The proportions of the BMW grille have been completely distorted,...

We'll have to agree to disagree on that last point. Things have not changed nearly enough. But to say that things have not changed at all is not accurate, IMHO.

I don't blame them, and I certainly don't think the rage is unjustified.

What I do think, though, is that history would indicate that rage and destruction met w/ rage and destruction generally...

Then consider that the smashed windows do nothing to create progress or justice and will only lead to those in power to re-double their efforts at oppression. Some of the businesses in LA that were...

When you only live a few blocks away from the smashed windows (as I do), then you might care.

An appeal to the Chinese market? Or to upwardly mobile younger folk worldwide (but particularly in the US) that REALLY want to show off that they got a BMW?

I can't say that I'm surprised (I'm in LA, we have some peaceful protests and some looting).

Many of us suspected that there would be civil unrest in US in response to the isolation orders, and...

Does the Miata sell that well? I'm too lazy to look up the sales figures. I guess it must do well enough to con't to justify it's existence. And, yes, I imagine Corvette also do very well.

It does indeed look very European. You could slap a VW or MB badge on this, and I would've been (somewhat) fooled.

Certainly hope the interior gets an upgrade, as well. Buick interiors tend to...

The HVAC controls look a lot like the ones from my 2003 Accord, so I would say the interior is mixed bag. Certainly, the wood is nice and the drive selector is well finished. But the buttons right...

I think this is a fine competitor in the $35-50K range.

In the near $60K (which Car and Driver estimates for the Type S), I don't think it will compete well. The interior is fine at the lower...

This looks very long and considerably larger than the current GLC. It also seems much boxier, and the profile is very wagon-esque.

Makes sense to put some distance btw the GLC and GLB (esp...

It looks like the part surrounding the central portion of the grille is body colored (instead of being chromed, as on the current model). I think that contributes to the weird, "puffy" look.

Wait, is the ICE Santa Fe moving to a new platform, too? That's quite a huge change for such a (relatively) new car.
