That's the part that I suspect is to find in my second paragraph;

I don't think it looks bad at all.


Keep in mind, it's designed for a very specific niche; a sedan car under 4m in length. This car, the Swift Dzire, and a few others all look bad.

What are people here expecting? It's for developing countries. It's a cheap econobox. Looks no worse than a Ka or VW Voyage.

Yeah, poor people don't deserve to drive something nice looking.

Because that's definitely what I said??

Price and reliability are the two major factors for this segment. This looks like a car. It's not fancy or pretty, but it's certainly not offensive.

I still think that Dacia (as such: Renault Nissan) does the best job in designing rugged low cost cars that don#t look cheap or odd; IMO the Sandero or Logan models don't look specifically cheap (not exciting, but IMO not worse than a Skoda Fabia or Rapid), and the Duster is even one of the better looking cars in it's segment; And all that costing probably 60% of the established models; Yes, you miss some of the latest gadgets (engines are actually quite up to date nowadays), and no one will mistake the interior plastics for leather, but again, with soft touch plastics becoming rare in anything below C-segment cars, the gap is not that huge;

This, or your average Indian and some Brazilian market models though immediately feel "developing market", no doubt for a second;

Judging by the face of our Accord, neither do middle class, everyday consumers.

Smaller than a Honda City. Very much an entry level design. Very little you can do at this price point to differentiate yourself from others.
