i dunno what to think... kinda just looks like an accord now to me... and it is losing the front grill structure i was really fond of for silly chrome.

personally, I like the look more, because it's more aggressive

but for the jetta I think this is a bad thing, since its most common owner is a girl in her early to mid twenties - I would guess that in the end this will hurt sales since it won't appeal to its core buyer's group

Looks like a girly car to me, sort of reminds me of the Bug.

Hmm, it does kind of look like an Acura TSX.


I'd love to drive one with the TDI engine, DSG tranny and AWD
:wtf:

maybe it's because i'm an Acura fanboy, but i think it looks much more like a dodge neon.

Wow. So you and I are in aggreement then. Stratus and Neon are very close in their design. Glad I wasn't the only one that saw it.

yep; that was the first thing that hit me. the grill, headlights, and hood are disturbingly similar.

Could be, though I hate the way Dodge cars (except for the magnum) look, so I would never insult something that way.
historically, dodge cars have been plain and not very streamlined. they're getting better, though.

I don't like it. That front grille is kinda weird.

Though after all the whoring that Ford did in American Dreams last night, the new Mustangs look pretty sweet.
