Uncovered, though as a... toy. We can't really judge it without seeing it in full size with all the details unaltered. Seems like a Mazda6 hatch IMO and a bit too close to the current 3, but not bad at all. Maybe just not as special and revolutionary as I hoped it will be. Anyway... looking good so far.

disappointingly evolutionary, but a good-looking car nonetheless. the DLO looks identical to the current hatch - i wonder if they're carrying it over like nissan did with the new murano, or if the shape's just very very similar?

I like it, evolutionary not revolutionary, and for the first time in a while there's a new car I like right off the bat.

The front in the first image looks like a bug [ an insect ], the windshield wipers being the 2 antennaes. Kinda cute. But I have no doubt it will look much better in real life pics.

Can't wait to see real pics.

Don't know about that front bumper / fascia design - it looks a bit of a mess here and will want to look allot better in reality IMO. The rest is fine. First impression is that it's not as clean as the current generation and a little too evolutionary.

The front bumper is a busy mess. Too many things are going on in an disharmonious way. The tail lights scream Subaru Tribecca. Though this is not as ugly as the Acura TL makeover, it is nevertheless an example of the current car looking better than its replacement.
All you need is love and aTVR.

I don't think i could really decide if i like it or hate it based on such photos of a toy so i will definitely reserve judgment.
