I'm actually okay w/ this so far. The front end is perhaps a small improvement; it's at least not worse. I think actually it looks a bit more graceful in profile than the current gen b/c the...

Yeah, has Buick produced anything even CLOSE to resembling its numerous great concepts?

Agreed. It doesn't look like a typical Honda which, sadly, is kind of a good thing. It looks sporty and yet reasonable practical. Not much in the way of overwrought sheetmetal sculpting, which...

Well, where one (or two) German makes go, so must they all go....

The shape of the side windows bears a striking resemblance to... the Honda Crosstour. Indeed a car ahead of its time, so it...

Oh, how funny, I was thinking a Lada. But, in looking it up, apparently some Ladas were made w/ assistance from Fiat!

This is a bit curious. The "original" designs to which this is a homage are, IMHO, the mid-century sedans I associate w/ being products of a communist (or socialist) country. Kind of an interesting...

+1.

I think this looks very nice, actually, but the chrome spears have already been done on other productive cars, even if not in the exact same way. And, while the shape is lovely, the...

I'm not normally a fan, either, but I don't mind it all here. The cut in the D-plllar subtle and, unlike on, say, the Hyundai Kona, the angle at which it's placed fits w/ the rest of the car and...

Agreed.

I think the ID.4 has an appealing exterior, but the interior is kind of a let-down, esp compared to the Skoda version (which looks a lot more upscale to me). While the gauge display in...

So is this kind of like Toyota's version of a Porsche 918?

Or, to go WAY back, Mercedes's C111s?

Oh, gawd, had we seen M3 spy pics indicating it would get the new snout, too? Yikes.

The grille is slightly less upsetting on the sedan, although I'm not quite sure why. The addiitonal...

While I would never call the X7 a beauty, I actually don't mind the way that it looks. Initially, I found it overly tall and a bit awkwardly proportioned, but the very pronounced grille at least...

I had actually said in an earlier post that it would be interesting to see what the pricing on this is.

The Mustang and Camaro are around $30-40K. I imagine they offer a more modern chassis (and...

Ouch. For Mitsubishi, that is.

Wikipedia indicates that the platform dates back to 2004 or so, so perhaps that's why it felt so old to me.

Is this actually a new vehicle or just a new engine in the same, very old, body?

It IS a facelift. Same platform. Motor Trend (I think) did a slideshow where they show that virtually all of the sheetmetal cutlines originate in the exact same spot btw the 2 cars.

I find the Supra exterior quite ugly, so most things slaughter it already. ;)

To be fair, Honda already has the NSX, and it's not like they have another RWD platform (AFAIK) suitable for conversion into a sports car.

Car and Driver assumes it is the same platform, so it's not a surprise that it looks rather similar to the old car. I have never been fond of the roofline of the current Z, and I don't love it here,...

Not sure about Canada, but one VW exec told a journalist a few yrs ago (paraphrasing), "When you offer Americans a bigger car, they never say, 'No.'"

I think the Parametric styling is a bit tragic. It's not a good thing when you make Toyotas and Hondas look almost demure. I don't like it on the Elantra (although perhaps I'll feel differently...

Almost, doesn't it? The front doors arc "forward" enough to betray the FWD roots, but the windshield starts back pretty far (for an inexpensive FWD), and the relatively flat hood gives it a bit more...

The overall shape is pleasant and not particularly cheap-looking, given the cab forward proportions. I'm disturbed by the weird rising lines on the side just below the windows.
