Default Matiz???

How come nobody thought about Daewoo Matiz >> Chevy Spark?
The back side of Spark looks really bad

And i also agree with scorpio, maruti 800(esp 2nd(1990) to 3rd(around 1999) generation)

BMW 3 series sedan looks better and aggressive than the latest 3 series coupe/M3.

Note:- Just my opinion.

Interesting thread. Except for Camry and Sonata, I have seen that older designs have been better in almost all cases.

I agree with many of you who mentioned Zen - I think the old Zen was a stunning machine!

Palio front Gril - Its not good now as before
Optra front Gril - Looks awkward
First Generation Zen to the second gen.
Second gen Honda city
New Endeavour - Not looks good as the old one.
Tata Indica/Indigo - What they release as new gens are just jokes.
New scorpio Front Bumper and back lights - Looks silly to me.

2. New Honda City... the old designwas a lot more appreciated and valued.

3. 2008 Honda Accord... did honda hire designers from Hyundai?

i felt the the zip can be zipped through traffic better than the xing, Xing looks big and difficult to zip around.

Yeah, another case of putting lipstick on a pig. And it just ain't pretty that way either.

and yes, I hope they don't redesign the Camry. The current one is beautiful. We got about 5-6 in our office and they are a joy to behold. would be sad if it goes back to a nondescript design like the previous version!

I just cannot find "design" in an ALTO.

It looked like Maruti wanted something new in the market and Alto was the hotch-potch result. It's not a cheap car in Indian terms. So a little aesthetics wouldn't have hurt. This is MY OPINION again......or is there anything wrong with my aesthetic sense?
