Except Lexus was there 5 years ago, and this is still a concpet car. I'd certainly welcome if a lot translates to a production car, but especially "flamboyant surfaces" and details are usually the first to go in the process of product ionizing....

True.... BUT I would argue that many of the Toyota/Lexus "concepts" were kind of ugly. The only exception was the LS concept, and that got totally lost in the translation to production (although it was the entire rear half of the DLO that changed).

I don't know about size (and frankly, I don't care), but instant association looking at this was "Toyota C-HR wannabe"... I just can't decide which one of them is more generously "endowed" with a mess of holes, sharp-edged lines and corners... may be (because of its eventual size) this one seems a bit "cleaner", but still...
shame though, because (and like C-HR) it has really nice silhouette...

with different taillights, it certainly could've been. the front has Escala-like headlights

Really good job, GM. Please don't waste too much time to bring this into production. This design language can help establish brand recognition, especially since the new Malibu shares some of this DNA already. It seems to me that GM has been looking for a "style" for decades now. I hope it ends soon.

This is 17 miles past great. If Chevy could capture this essence and use it at this level across their line, we'd have a return to the styling perfection of their 60s cars.

This is a very nice looking vehicle, but absolutely nothing about it says Chevy. This could be from virtually any Japanese or Korean manufacturer. If GM wants Chevy to produce generic products (albeit very good looking products), then certainly this is the way to go.

Agreed although I find their current design language so anemic that this is a welcomed departure.

Its very admirably executed but typical reactionary GM. The CH-R is getting good press and I never go anywhere without seeing a few Jukes on the road. Without them, this wouldn't have been dreamt up.

Even the stupid name is an echo on CH-R, or its predecessor: the RSC.
