      They are here. I'm thinking these may be popular. However, i can't get past the current black C pillar cheat line trend.

      I normally don't do the "looks like" game, but those taillights really do look like a blatant ripoff of the new Civic's.

      This actually has decent reviews, esp. in the handling department. I thought I would hate it, but Toyota has done a nice job with designing the cockpit and has packed a good amount of features into it. Obviously trunk space and rear visibility (including for rear passengers) are big issues. Not a fan of the outdated camera in the rearview mirror either

      I like these but it was stupid to bring over only high spec trims.

      I like the shape and styling of these juke-esque creations. Would be even better if they developed some type of performance version (also like the juke).

      This is on the new global platform with a wishbone rear end and is actually supposed to be pretty good to drive.

      It's like asking for a window seat on your flight and you end up in the last row of an MD80.

      I don't know. They have some modding potential.



      That back seat does look awful though.

      Yet more support for my theory that SUVs (CUVs) are slowly shrinking back into just being normal cars, basically lower that and put smaller wheels on and you have a new Civic hatch.

      That back seat area is awful, however, its almost like it would have made more sense to just skip the window
