That's horrendous.

The blind spot on the Audi Q2 is ridiculous as well.

Question.

Who else thinks that the styling treatment under the head lights of the Civic above is pig ugly and aerodynamically inefficient?

This is much better!

It's probably very efficient aerodynamically - I can't imagine it wouldn't be after however much CFD and wind tunnel time it's had.

The new Micra looks good. Previous one was too "girly".

I can think of many words beginning with B that would describe it. . . beautiful certainly isn't one of them!

What an ugly B!

I thought the Megane was considered a mid-sized car?

The Mégane is a C-segment, or as British press calls them, "small family car".

I really don't buy the contempt for most modern cars- having had the misfortune of driving utter crap from 60s-eg Viva HA; 70s- eg Allegro ; 80s eg Nissan Bluebird and 90s eg Peugeot 106D most modern cars are far , far more capable, more safe in a shunt and much better on mpg. Nobody loves the look of an Elan, an early 911 or a 275gtb more than I do but let's just remember the hideous rubbish foisted on the car buying public in the past .....

"Grey Porridge". Conveyances to get you from A to B, and that's about it. Sometimes you didn't even get to B.

Couldn't agree more. My first car was a '66 Viva HA SL and I recall having to check the oil and water every week, and adjust the brakes every month. I check the oil in my present car every 5k miles, just out of interest because it never needs a top-up. Cars today are incredibly efficient in every way (unless you work for Greenpeace).

That Fiesta is a small family hatchback, but looks the same size as a Cortina from the '60s. Such is the price of gadgets and safety installations.
