Is it just me or does that kind of look like a Scion.

It would look pretty cool if they made a woody version.

this thing is going to a huge hit if its priced right. If you read the press release you'll see all the innovative and cool features this thing has.

Someone smashed a SCion and a Pt Cruiser together. UGLY.

I do see the Scion in it but, IMO, it looks much better. I like it. Looks/sounds very functional and will have s decent amount of power.

Yes, it is boxy...but that gives you more room inside. I dig the white roof, that will keep it much cooler around here. A white roof without having to have the entire car white ("refrigerator on wheels" when it's a boxy wagon) is good.

I see Scion and I see Mini, I fail to any PT Cruiser in it.

Mini...I knew I was seeing something besides Scion, but couldn't put my finger on it.

I think it looks pretty cool.

I just watched the video they added. One thing I didn't like is the rear gate/door panel. It would be just fine painted the maroon too.

Up to 7 passengers with stowable seats, I was wondering how it would look inside. That will be a big selling point for sure.

Some might also see just a bit of Land Rover in it...

Mini shooting brake - yup!
And a LOT of Range Rover influences.

This car makes a LOT more sense than the Taurus X...

If they made one with a 4V 4.6, 6 speed stick, RWD, and they dumped it on its guts... this car would have my name written all over it.
But saddly I don't think those options will be available... (however the 2.7l V6 diesel would be a great sales option...)

I really like the headlights on it.
