Anyway to resize the images? They are a tad large in size and stretch the screen on my end.

Mixed feelings about the design, maybe it's the tires and rims which feel small compared to the rest. Maybe it needs another colour, like black, otherwise feel the design feels odd. hmm

Maserati does not have any Italian flair in its design anymore. The brand is becoming just another expensive also-ran. These initial images look like a BMW X? in the front, Audi/Porsche-esque in the rear and a somewhat generic profile.

Agreed.

I'm not sure how I feel about this yet.

I don't understand why they changed the detailing of the concept--the new front bumper and grille are overwrought in comparison. It's more design for the sake of more design.

It's fine, I guess. Not fond for the fender flare over the rear tires, though.

Is anyone else kind of tired of how homogenous the automobile industry has become? I get it, they need to make a profit, and it's super competitive. But I'm just kind of tired of how... SIMILAR everything is. ::sigh::

The front looks crook - the grille and upper engine air-intake couldn't look much worse, and the circular lights look like random afterthoughts. The rest of the design is an underwhelming snooze-fest which lacks any kind of allure.

Ford must be chuffed about the headlight design BTW.

Oh, how funny. I was thinking Audi + Mazda, regarding the headlights.

It's a derivative amalgam of dated looks from other manufacturers. The side is pure Infiniti and the tail is Mazda. The face is hideous. Clearly the same team that did the Giulia ramshackle of design cues did this.

If this is accurate, it's laughably bad.
