There are other reasons though for the fate of the SRV other than the lack of the boot. However compare the successes (relative) of the Palio with respect to the Sedan and Estate version.

the previous generation 5-series was a timeless design. elegance personified, untill Chris Bangle walked into the design studio. Some of the British and Italian marques still maintain a balanced design philosophy.

A company that needs to fire its entire design team is the Korean Ssangyong. Have a look....disclaimer: images may not be suitable to those of you who are not in total control of your emotions.

@GTO - How about the Cedia in the current lot - that still looks low-slung?
Yup, the Cedia looks great (except for the quirky nose).

To me best car designs are best termed as boxy, W123, W124,W126 (Mercedes') E30 E36 E34 (BMWs) just to name a few.

Totally and wholeheartedly agreed! The E39, W124/6 and W140 look awesome today and much better than their current gen siblings. Its fascinating to think how these designs have aged so well; they still turn heads 20 years after introduction.

Just how many of the current designs have grace in them? Will look great in 2027? BAH!

the boxy designs are easily elegant on big cars - typically the americans. we've seen how our sense of aesthetics grates against small ones imitating them - the logan, for example.

of course, apart from the civic, lancer, cedia, OHC, baleno (hope no one expects me to justify it everytime i say a baleno's beautiful! it surely is to me.) there are not many sedans that i would love to spend my money on. the interiors get better and so do the cars, but the designs take it all away.

heck, how on earth can u get emotional with a car unless it isn't ugly!?
