Spotted nearly undisguised. Good lord that is NOT pretty, it's really time for them to move beyond the fish face. Also, it's 2019...why do the headlights and taillights need to be SO huge?!

I don't actually mind it. I assume the lower edge of the side windows might be "fake" (camo'd). I hope the real thing doesn't curve up so much (which would be bad for visibility). The D-pillar has a bit of a mini Ford Edge feel.

I'm fine w/ big headlights (not fond of Kia's slit design); don't know why such a gaping grille is necessary, though.

I also find the whole thing exceptionally bland.

Iíd wager thatís the final beltline. The trim at the bottom along with the metal accent on the upper window line where it meets base of the d-pillar look too crisp/final to me to be a fake.

Very generic and very dull.

I wasn’t necessarily advocating for “slits,” but there's no reason for them to take up the amount of real estate that they do for a likely 2020 model.

Take, for example, the current Grand Cherokee face from 2017. It has slim and compact headlights, which are a fraction of the size of those seen on this Escape:





oh well. *shrug* i'm more curious to see the interior (will it just mirror the new Focus or have its own design?) and how its Lincoln Corsair cousin turns out.

I like the large DLO. Low belt-line is nice too. I'm glad they're going for a less-butch look.

Yep, the headlights are unnecessarily huge. I think it's a tactic to make the car look overall smaller (Mini uses this technique on the new Coopers to hide how much it's grown).
That ever so slight micro-kink on the bottom edge of the tail lights is really frustrating though. Why not just make it continuous at that point...

I think it's a lame attempt to emphasise the '3D' nature of the rear lights. The red element seems to jut out further than the white does.

I figured, but it's about half the size it needs to be to convey that (BMW has been pretty good at this with the new 8 Series, less with the 3).
