For those whom haven't seen in person pics here they are.looks great in person and very clean lines. hatch is a little more bubbly then i would like and the hatch has less room then youd expect for its size but it provides a premium of interior space tho 20160922_110938.jpg

The tailpipe isn't molded into the lower fascia, correct? I recall it being separate (real) on the "concept", and it looks the same here.

Awesome, a real tailpipe!

I HATE all the fake, molded-in "tailpipes" these days. Seeing a real one is a refresher.

Mercedes is quite possibly the worst. Their diesel have fake "tailpipes" that are blocked off



The pre-refresh MKZ has big chrome surrounds - and quite possibly the wimpiest little exhaust pipe clearly visible inside it. I laughed out loud the first time I saw them.

Don't know How I feel about that. I have a softspot for hatches generally like them all, but there's something throwing me off about this one. looks like the nd gen mazda 3 hatches.

due to emissions most cars look the same now. There is really only one true shape that is peak design for efficiency so all the brands know it and try to change it to differentiate but that why nissan body silhouette chevy and honda look very similar

look at the huge amount of surprising clearence... View attachment 206273
Stopped in to look at a hatchback today. Now I know why there is so much clearance under the front bumper in your picture.

It doesn't have the front air dam installed. It was in a plastic bag along with the floor mats in the hatch I looked at today. I'm sure they don't want the air dam getting damaged as it gets loaded and unloaded from the car carrier, etc.

whats nice is that its soft rubber and can bend easily and rebound sort of speaking. now you can always take it off when you know youll be in deep snow

That's nice - so you don't get that god-awful scraping noise if you pull too far forward? Nothing worse than that! The Camaro and the Cobalt I have to be more careful with than the Cruze, since they're both low, but the CTD doesn't exactly ride high, either.

My issue with the Cruze is that it doesn't make a noise going forward - it's only when backing out that it tells you. The Cobalt I've driven for long enough to know how far to pull up.
