I'd rather have that than the Yaris hatchback, but why not just get a Corolla.

It's as pathetic as the Versa sedan and the Mirage sedan. I don't understand why affordable cars have to be pathetic looking. Do manufacturers think they have to punish people who can only afford a bare-bones car with ugly styling? It certainly seems so. It's either ugly or garish, but never tasteful and attractive.

I happen to like the Spark, but in replacing it, GM sapped 100% of that car's cute individuality.

Personally I think Dacia does brilliant econo designs, that avoid looking cheap. Also Fiat usually does a good job (the Tipo looks way more expensive than it is). Hell even the latest Lada looks way bettee than a Versa or the Mirage.

These made mainly for South East Asia cars really look like made ugly on purpose. I also agree about the Spark...

Even the Logan looks decent. This on the other hand doesn't. The face is particularly awful.
