wow, lots of fail here. the new 300c front end is boring and a few steps in the wrong direction. all of the new vw's look really cheap and bland on the exterior styling.

BMW 1 series... yes. BTW, the Civic didn't change that much! I thought it was getting a whole new look instead of a refresh/refinement? Also, to those GMC Leather seats!

Keep in mind that that Civic is a gussied-up concept...which means the production Civic will be stripped down a bit. I have a feeling that once all the auto show parts are taken off, we'll be seeing what looks like nothing more than an updated Civic.

Meanwhile, Mullaly's One Ford is already looking a bit stale.. :/

I'll still have that 6spd Sonic Hatch Turbo.

I saw another picture yesterday of one of the new launch products that was missing the horn emblem and "Air bag" script on the horn pad.

Whoever does Photoshops for GM really needs to start paying more attention.

I saw one a few weeks ago with the speedo on 55, tached up.... and the fuel, oil pressure and everything else was on 0 . Won't be going that fast for long!

It was my understanding that all these GM promo pictures aren't photoshops or actual photographs but CGI images. So it's probably just lazy copy-paste from an automatic version of the image.

If that's the case they are getting eerily good at CGI

With the amount of money GM has on hand I don't see how they couldn't. They could release photos of the finished product without spending so much to actually build a production intent vehicle with all the proper trim and all the panel lines just right.

Do it in a computer and it's easier and cheaper.

The Verano shots though look like a normal shoot, high priced and as proper as can be. Those are real. The Sonic shots have a very CGI if not overly touched up look. Maybe those are just engine-less shells?

Maybe that's what I'm seeing; GM's touching up of the photos.

Impressed with GM, Buick is world class. I really want the GMC
Ford has more crossovers because I guess 183,643,940 isn't enough.
Impressed with the new 300
1 Series M coupe =
Audi and VW interiors looks cheap and plain. These are the benchmark for interiors?????

The 300C and passat look old already....those are new cars?

Everything from hyundai/kia is weird and gross-looking, naturally....toyota seems to have "little man's syndrome" trying to put the prius back into the spotlight, but doesn't matter because every version looks hideous...and the 1M doesn't look bad, but I'm not loving it, either.

The Audi is nice, as are the Fords.....maybe I'm biased, but it seems to me that GM has the most visually appealing display at the show this year?

I think it's the ergonomics and material use critics love. They aren't much for style at all, though...

The C-max interior looks like an explosion in a parts bin, way too busy. The 1 series does nothing for me.
