It looks good so far, but the back is very similar to the new Altima it seems.

Passat + Altima

And for some reason I see "BMW 5 + Oldsmobile Aurora"

Altima??? That's cladding, not a bangle butt.

I was referring to the stretched out taillights and greenhouse mainly...

This looks impressive so far; much better than the Accord based on spy shots.

Eh, it's ok. I'll give it the benefit of the doubt with the camo.

Its looking like a very nice car. The rear has a strong Altima flavour, but the general proportions look more appealing.

Looks too asian...

It really has become a sad day in the auto industry. Every sedan looks the same and because the asians are supposedly "the standard" the sedans all look like $h!. No originality or anything, it even has that ugly cropped rear that the new puke-tacular Altima has.... Maybe it'll have the horrible cut lines as well or the same 'fat arm' syndrome that the front of the Altima (front fenders) suffers from.

I have never been a fan of Asian cars for MANY reasons. Their design is one of those reasons. They have no soul............kind of like their citizens (ouch!). Anyway, I would rather GM get their own inspiration (like they did in the day). I would not mind if they got a couple of design ideas from the Germans either (their quality is getting very shady, but their designs are still cool).

Yes, the whole industry has gone too much into just copying whatever general style Toyota and Honda put out.

The only really GOOD looking sedans of the last 10 years that I can think of off the top of my head are the late-model Bonnevilles, the 2nd gen CTS, and the G8.

I don't understand why the magazines have gone ga-ga over the styling of this car. That side profile shows front and rear overhangs that would make a W-body blush....

I hope that is fake trunk. I've yet to see a Bangle butt that looks good. The Altima's toned down one is the best one so far, but still not attractive.

Yeh, i thought altima too, but without the oddly large greenhouse effect. this car looks nicely styled.

are we sure this is the sized car we'll see as AURA? I know the stylign is supposed to be identical. but shouldn't we be getting a longer wheelbase version?

if that bangled trunk is just camo, then its a great job, cause thats one high 3rd brake light. and the body lines kinda look like they flow into the higher bangle trunk

maybe it's a cute little duck-tail spoiler. like the one on the Astra 4-door concept over on gminsidenews...
