Hmmm. Well, I don’t think it’s been ruined or anything, but I’m not sure how much I like it yet. In the live shots the tail lamps look a bit odd and the front seems a bit boxy.

Really? The current Ram is still pretty attractive. This new one is nice too, but it doesn't look much like a Ram anymore.

I like this a lot. Still obviously a Century, but reasonably contemporary (less so if it’s still in production in 2035, admittedly). Elegant in its simplicity. The interior has more design flourishes...

Wow, that is a mystifying decision. Especially since it was initially reported the US would get the T-Roc in 2018-19. Maybe we're going to get the T-Cross instead? That might make more sense for the...

This should be based on the MLB architecture (transverse-engine equivalent of MQB). I don't think the previous Cayenne used that architecture.

I completely forgot about the T-Cross. If that's the Polo SUV, that must make the T-Roc the Golf SUV. I guess in Europe that makes this a Qashqai rival. I wonder how VW will position it in the US;...

Looks promising. The current Altima is a big step down from its predecessor (along with the Sentra and Versa), so hopefully this will be a return to form.

GM would never agree to that given how popular Buick is in China.

I'm interested to see how this turns out. I'm not sure this was a good move for GM; I get that Opel was unprofitable for a long...

Interesting. It appears to be identical to the CX-5 from the B-pillars forward. So it's an extended-wheelbase CX-5 essentially.

Those will both probably be out of my price range too, I've set a limit for myself of $30k. I also don't have much faith in Hyundai/Kia suspension tuning, but I'm interested to see if the Stinger...

I like this a lot. The proportions are in line with where the segment is going and it looks more upscale than the real thing. Maybe the only things I'd change are a smoother kink in the rear-quarter...

It kind of looks like a combination of the new Fiesta (more rounded/curved shapes) and the outgoing one (outer edge of headlights mainly). The upside is that it's far more attractive than the current...

The interior is certainly unusual for VW, not that I dislike it.

As for the outside, no surprises. Fairly middle of the road for the class, but more interesting than the outgoing Polo at least.

That's a fair point.

I also agree with AM2 that the non-SE face is the preferable one; I actually think it looks ok as long as you're not looking at it head-on.

I'm inclined to agree; while I don't hate it, it's too try-hard and yet too cautious at the same time. I guess it's not a bad thing that it's obviously a Camry, and from the front wheels back I...
