Crossover Tops'n'Flops. And some Boobs.

Ok, first part of the post is for some of the car freaks. Two cars that attracted my attention in the past few weeks. The first one, definitely in Tops class, is Škoda Yeti, neat little industrial so called SUV. Its design is telling exactly what it should for this class of cars. On the other side, BMW 5 GT, really doesn't know what its message. A mixture of coupe, hatchback, van, limousine, trailer? Definitely the Flop of the car season 2009/2010. No doubt it will sell well though. Money and Chic very often don't go together well.




And for not that tin can challenged part of my flist. French and Saunders. I am almost certains I've posted this before, but still....

I think I need new spectacles... *wink*

Yes, I can't really know what is BMW design team trying to tell. I mean, BMW is a premiur brand, but still not that premium that they could afford avant-garde design. Which it isn't.

It's not even "coupe". It looks like a whale to me. Or like some mid 90's Nissan hatchback they sold here.

Yeti looks okay, yes. :)

First...... GOOD TO SEE YOU AGAIN, Dave!!!!!

BMW seems to have tough times defining their design priorities. I wouldn't mind seeing a large coupe/hatchback/limo combination of it only looked good. A great example of that new species will be out soon. Audi A7. Breathtaking.

I think many here share the same thoughts.
The 5GT is abominable. Again, what's the point, other than trying to fill every perceived or imagined niche market BMW can seem to conjure up? The 5 Estate is much better. The X6 is even uglier if such a thing is imaginable...and further begs the question of what is this car for? Other than height, they appear to the untrained eye almost indistinguishable from the other.
I used to admire BMW...a 3 series was one of my aspirations. Now, I'm not sure as BMW (IMHO) seeks more to fill the needs of the status-obsessed as opposed to those who truly appreciate driving excellence.

<> sorry about all that...

I do like the Yeti. Is it based on a VW Lupo or Polo platform? It is very appealing and a derivation of it might do well here...
