I have a personal dislike of Alfa's habit of hanging the front number plate on the side rather than central. The same thing bugs me about the Land Rover Discos and their rear plates. I think it upsets my desire for symmetry and balance in car design! As for the Nissan Cube don't start me off! :-D

That Alfa looks very purposeful :) I agree on the number plate Mick. In its home territory, front plates are very small and insignificant so will fit fairly nicely in the spot Alfa designed for them. I still, like you, don't like them off-centre...

Colour suits it...

Well without prompting and from some time ago I shutter clicked a future CitroJim Mobile as a contender...

My thought process.......thats a nice colour, it's a Citroen, looks like a nice sort of size, not too big, not too small, its got a decent tail gate, probably plenty of space for the dog, bit of protective plastic down and I bet those back seats fold down to get a few bags of sand and cement bricks and roofing felt in. Its got roof bars too :-D

So what was it?

I also awarded a Honda Civic the best looking modern car in ASDA car park in 2018!

Yes, it's not a bad looker at all. It's easy enough on my eye and I like that it's a bit different to the usual stuff... It stands out from the crowd :)

It works too on a practical level with its huge tailgate and cavernous cargo area :) All the benefits of a van without actually being one.

The new Pug e208 is not too hard on the eye. I spent time looking at one in a lovely metallic blue whist purchasing Polly...
