The "Teana" have something Volvo'ish about it.. Those back lights for example. But then add hidus fenders, a face not even a mother could love and a hood/grille assembly that don't seem to be from the same car that they gotten that bumper from... The chrome is just... cut of.. No lower edge... just nothing ...
Noo If I ever buy one of these it will be of the present model in Sweden now:
Very nice looking actually, compared to the freaks above.
I can't stand the horrendous trend of new cars. The excessively-chisled-angled look is just awful. I cannot look at any of these cars and think that it will be a classic. Much unlike the trend of the early 90's, which, in my opinion, was a pinnacle of automotive design. The RX7's, the MR2's, the 300ZX, the mid and late-90's Celicas (et.al) - all HOT!
One of our cars is a '97 Celica. While it doesn't drive up to my standards, it is one of the classiest looking cars ever produced. Much unlike the new Celicas that are an absolute abomination.
Which is one of the reasons I like the '6 (at least so far - have yet to see it in person). It is one of the few cars out today that has sleek, flowing lines and is not bulky, excessively creased, or gaudy.
