Everything looks pretty bland and generic when all the details are covered up... from what I can tell though, it should be pretty good-looking.

Looks pretty good, I just hope that ugly black plastic doesn't make it to production, though I'm guessing it will.

Nah, that's just the camoflage that the manufacturers use to hide their upcoming cars. ^_^

:stupid:

I don't mean the camo :lol: I mean the black plastic around the wheel arches and on the bottom of the doors.

I love the current Vue, even though I hated it when I first saw the photos of the updated look. Compare it to what was, however, and it looks much more modern and upscale. I am sure the next-gen will continue the upward march of the Vue and Saturn.

The overall shape looks good. Under all the camo, it almost looks like something Hyundai would make.. fortunately, this one will look good.

Pretty boring and generic looking, from what I can see. I love my wifes 05 AWD V6 Vue.

Distinctive and fast!

Lets hope they drop a 250hp+ 3.6L HF in there with the 6 speed auto. The Honda 3.5L/5 speed is a great powertrain but GM can beat that now.

The overall shape is the same, but the interior will be different and what you can't see beneath the camouflage is very different (rear windows/d-pillar, lights etc.). What you can see is that the side door sheetmetal is different. The Captiva has a defined crease and cutaway running up the side through the door handles, the Vue/Antara does not.

I refer again to the AutoBild shots, which have less camouflage:

As they say, the proof will be in the pudding...

I am interested in knowing if they will carry over the Honda engine.

FYI, there is another shot on their main "futures" page:

InsideLine

It's a headline image so it may change when the next article comes out...

Enjoy

it looks to be the same colour as the the camo Z on the sides so I think/hope it won't be there in final production

I used to like the current VUE, but the interior is a letdown along with a couple other things-I guess I still like it more than say, the Ford Escape-looks like a mini-SRX to me. I'm not crazy about the dashboard spy shots of the Antara, and the production car from what I'm seeing pales in comparison to the dynamite Antara GTC concept from earlier this year. The production Antara AutoBild CGI's of the car reminded me a little of the last (2001-05) Toyota RAV4, but that's a good thing because though undersized, that RAV4 and the Antara CGI's still had some style.

Okay, I see potential. I'm really anxious to see the vehicles at the New York Auto show... there are so many things I want to see... and this may be the first time I would actually see a Vue that is attractive.
