How do we know it's not just an F-Pace with camo? I can't see any serious difference between this and the production F-Pace.

It's clear now that the rendering gets a lot wrong, most notably the location of the rear door handles. I predict this will be one of the best if not the best looking B-Segment hatchback on the...

Totally agreed. The 2 series is too sporty to get serious consideration from mainstream entry luxury buyers, and not sporty enough (except in limited-prod M2 form) to attract sporty car buyers. That...

Stretching the Civic's already excellent design to mid-size proportions represents a huge opportunity for Honda. This could end up being he best looking sedan in it's class by far. Let's hope they...

The existing Enclave is about a decade old and still looks pretty up-to-date. Looks like they are wisely taking the cautious route with the new one.

The design is every bit as indecipherable as it was before. Score one for the camo designers.

I admire the Independence of both companies and wouldn't want to see this happen. But if times got tough this would be a sensible pairing.

Good. The last thing we need is another SUV wannabe Outback/Allroad kind of thing. As far as I know these have no practical benefit over regular wagons.

Umm no, this strategy is completely wrong.

Not groundbreaking, but far better looking than anything sold by Nissan in this class. I wish some of Renault's styling goodness could rub off onto to Nissan, like Kias is to Hyundai.

I never knew that. I thought only the Americans kept platforms around forever (like the 1986-2007 Taurus or the 1988-present GM10). That really takes Camry and Toyota down a peg. And now with TNGA it...

My rough guess is that there will be a lot of Corolla influence in this design. And the current Corolla is far from a classic. A lot of recent Toyota design seems to be about throwing as many...

The XLR and ELR got neither attention nor sales. That's not to say Cadillac wouldn't be stupid enough to try again.

The exterior is great but the real prize is the interior. Maybe my favorite in the whole industry. I just wonder what making the roof pretty did for rear headroom?

Interesting thought, but I've never heard of an automaker building a one-off prototype (which can cost ~$1 million) for the sole purpose of appearing in grainy spy shots.

It's hard to call this an improvement over the past one. A-B pillar is awkward.
