The touchscreen, buttons below and seats all look like it been copied from Mercedes. If they changed the gear-lever consul it would look 100x better.

Stupid WIDE center console......you cannot rest your leg at an angle, ergonomic madness.....just like the DS5.


I didn't think of that! Good point. As a long legged fellow myself that would really impinge on my comfort!
Unless they made the Chinese C5 afoot wider :-D

That Chinese "new" C5 is just cheap facelift of C5 X7. Changed lights and bumpers outside and altered old dash a bit. As you can see for instance glove box and upper part of dash are 1:1 with old one.

Yes the inside looks like a kids Mecanno set - everything just bolted on - like that screen and the transmission console - square pegs in a round hole. Nothing fits and nothing flows, terrible.

Theres not a new car on the market that I particularly like the design of. They all look very similar, as if they are designed and construced by one corporate computer. Actually the only new cars I would consider are citroens, the new c3 or a cactus.

Totally agreed in all respects Davie... I too quite like the looks of the new C3 but not so much the Cactus now it's lost its airbumps...

The C3 is smart not sure of anything else. I've always liked Kia Souls because they're different.

Yes, something a tad different, and designed around function, rather than a "me too, play safe" styling exercise. There just doesn't seem to be much really innovative styling around at the moment. Cars have become a bit like mobile phones: just there, do their stuff (by-and-large), and don't warrant much attention (apart from badge-buying).

Three which I like the look of are
- Skoda Yeti
- Kia Soul
- the new Honda Urban prototype (see another post).
Have something refreshing to them, like the first appearance of David Bache's Range Rover, the original Renault Espace, the Jensen Interceptor, or - of course - CX, BX and XM.

I think the industry is just afraid of failure, and so lacks courage. But, in an age of 3-D CAD and digital prototyping, where's the excuse?

The new C1 is a smart little car.

I agree with you on the touchscreen but then again all of the modern Mercedes have stupid tablet like touchscreens tacked onto the dash...


I was going to say exactly that!

Ref the chinese C5 - that is blatently just an X7 with a different nose and interior. Otherwise exactly the same body.

The only new cars I like the look of are the Focus RS, which looks fantastic, kind of like something you'd have drawn as a car-mad 8 year old, or curiously, the Kia Soul. I "quite" like the Skoda Yeti, but it's really a VW Tiguan in cheap clothes.
