New 1-series breaks new ground in the prusuit of ugly

I just don't know what to say. Your typical Mazda is much better looking. This car looks like it has a severe case of Down's syndrome.



They should get Bangle back. They just can't figure out a non-hideous way to deal with these pedestrian impact regs. Audi doesn't have a problem with them.

Uhhh...the grille, boxy front end, tapered headlights, and look how damn high the hood and cowl are!

The back looks like a typical econobox. The tail lights are fugly...the rest just boring and cheap looking. The curve of the rear fenders is remeniscent of a butt-cheak, and doesn't blend well with the chine or pillar.



Side view is the best. The doors look pretty good...much like an e90. Nice windshield rake, roof shape, and front window shape. But there are still a lot of problems. Again- high cowl, blunt squared off high front end, and too much front overhang.

The chine is overdone...more Sonota than E90 towards the back. It also doesn't blend into the bulging rear venders very well. Very design-by-commitee. They tried to hard to integrate that ginormous hoffmeister kink. And why aren't the mirrors body-color?


Nice interior

Yeah...the back doors barely have to curve around the wheels. I think it's mainly because the back end looks cleaved-off though, reducing the length overall.

Speaking of Hyundai, BMW better be careful. Here's a much better execution of a similar shape...
