2016 BMW X1  [0.00]
I'm fine with a 4 cyl--BMW has some heritage there. And then there's the AMG A45 S

But I can't forgive the fact it looks like a Hyundai or Kia

BMW created this ugly POS and is a testament to the fact that BMW is getting cheap and have no clue how to design a proper looking car in this age compared to anyone else. I see a Kia vs a Dodge by looking at this and it makes me VOMIT.

The Kia and Dodge look better and more cohesive to me! And that's the truth. If the Dart had the performance #'s anywhere close to the 2GC, it would have been a massive hit. It even came in a manual transmission.

I see a crooked Honda H & a Killed in Action marquee; then, I don't even notice the car under it. I couldn't tell you the defining features of those cars. I couldn't care less.

I can forgive the exterior styling. I don’t like it but it might appeal to some. What I can’t forgive is the FWD car masquerading as a BMW.

Might be an ok car, we’ll find out in reviews. But it’ll never be a bmw to me.

Is it odd that the head of BMW M left for Hyundai and now the new cars are starting to bear a resemblance to Hyundai and Kia artifacts. Maybe he took some knowledge with him and was able to execute faster?

Just a thought.

Considering that the genesis of these cars was more than two years ago, it's possible. Whenever you bring in somebody new, with them comes knowledge and experience garnered from the place they came from.

The grill thing is ridiculous. Who signed this off?
It's going to be the LCI before they start fixing some of this.
