This car just looks horrible. I know inventing new categories of car is the German car designers' "thing" right now, but come on, does this car really have to exist. I mean really?!

At least uggoes like this thing make our Alfas look even prettier by comparison.

I like quite a few BMW's, but I don't like that one.

Horrible.

Given that I've only ever seen one of them on the road, I suspect not.

Some day the question will get asked?
The 3 series equivalent is reminiscent of a cavalier from a while back but at least it doesn't take up as much space as this thing.

Godawful. There's only one place for it on this wall. Near the skirting board. With a spade.

It doesn't matter on here. It isn't cool at all.

It's bound to be competent. It is a BMW, after all. Still it must be moderately compromised at the very least as it tries to be everything. Personally, I think these not-really GTs, not-really estates, nor coupes, nor saloons are amongst the worst models they produce. Chronically cynical marketing dept dross.

i keep looking at it and wondering...did the team that designed it grow up in some ghastly elegance-free design vacuum? Have they never seen the gracious BMW 3.0CSi? Or even looked at the many handsome and dignified cars BMW has produced as useful reference points?

For sure, we can quibble over the validity/use/value of the concept, but did it really need to look so gracelessly gash?

I couldn't have put it better. Even with the legislative constraints for pedestrian protection and so on, surely they could have given it at least a dash of style.

It looks absolutely gorgeous on these pictures compared to reality. 101% ugly and totally uncool.
