new megane fail.

 

ford like every fecker else has surrendered to the clone patrol.

 

all new cars look like each other despite their different manufactures.

 

gone is originality or even creative effort.

looks good to me.. and all this all cars look the same.. erm in the 70s/80s etc cars all looked the same then as well.. only then they looked like square boxes with a wheel each corner... :nutter:

 

 

the Capri looked like the Cortina?

 

The Escort looked like the Fiesta?

 

really?

 

all their shapes and styling looked nearly as identical as the new focus is to the new fiesta is to the new megane is to new Astra?

 

really??

 

your usually so reasonable and rationable in your opinions Mut's....but that was just a terrible response and example choice:unsure:

I actually read the article now. And after that journalistic masterpiece really want to throw up.

 

“Designers have spent most of this year working on the coupé concept. As inspiration they’ve had pictures of Capris on their studio walls.”

 

Ha. Ha. Ha. I mean, seriously ? Why do we need to know this ? They obviously didn't look at it very often, did they ?!?

I'll give them the very remote back window/c pillar resemblance, but that's stretching it a lot.

 

We've heard this cock and bull story at least twice in last 15 years. First with a MKII Probe and then Cougar. And how did that work out for them ?

 

Another "spirit successor" and somebody needs to mow down the whole marketing department with a .50 caliber BMG.

 

If Ford wants a coupe that actually sells, why don't they just take MKIII Capri, do modern twist and watch nation of mid life crisis baldness crashing trough the showroom window ?

 

Rant over.

 

I actually like it. A bit. Hope it will sell, so I can buy one in 20 years time and beg somebody to make it 4x4 for me :D

mk3 escort you look closely to that and a cortina/granada and you can see its the same car even down to the lights just larger each time you step up one model. we all look through tose tinted glasses at the past...

 

cortina/hillman hunter and fair few others looked the same in days back.. all pretty boring shapes tbh. i used to hate the focus over escort and was clear i would never have one but now the escort looks dated

Are we believing this? This is auto express remember!

 

I think it looks acceptable, clearly the kind of car focus groups think is the way forward since it just looks like the renault megane. I agree with DaweV6's comment about making a decent coupe and having the midlife crisis balding men smashing through the showroom window
