The hatchback is ungainly and UGLY. The rear is way to thick and ponderous looking.

Beautiful. Rear of the hatch is the best part. I don't care how bad the blind-spot is, those proportions are killer and unique. Like an old Brera.

Interior is stunning. Detailing is stunning. THIS is how you do minimalism without looking cold and tech-focused (cough cough Audi).

Agreed on all fronts.

The interior is ridiculous in a good way.

The hatchback looks more like a hunchback.

It looks great, unsurprisingly. The hatch in particular is definitely channelling Alfa. I can see why some people may not like it but it looks great to me. The sedan looks really good too, though much more conventional. On first glance the interior wouldn't look out of place in an entry-luxury car. I can't wait to see more pictures.

The sedan is a hero and the hatch is a zero.

The sedan looks much better in full view (thankfully) than it did in the teaser.

Other sources indicate that the rear suspension is torsion beam (?!?!?!) and car will have available AWD.

Why buy the ILX when you could get this?

Hmm I am on the fence with the hatch, on one hand it looks close to the concept which is great but then the less amount of windows on the side and in the C pillar will make the rear seats rather dark and possibly feel claustrophobic for some. Maybe it won't but it feels like that may be the case.

I prefer the chrome grill treatment, the blacked out grill on the hatch is not an option I'd get.

One thing bothering me is the front fender, it is thicker than in the concept and would have been better if it was a tad thinner.
