    Rate the Chevrolet SS styling.

    This seemed to be pretty popular in the Corvette thread. Rate the Chevy SS. 10 being perfect, 1 being the worst.

    I gave it a 2 because the side profile ain't bad.
    That front end is putrid, IMO

    My problem with it as well as the Holden's is the beltline doesn't match the base of the windshield. The 3/4 view is terrible for that reason.

    Re: Rate the Chevrolet SS styling.

    I like the overall package but it looks like what the GTO was. A quick bandaid to fill a huge hole in the portfolio. It's just not a very cohesive design and all the Austrailian based cars look ten years old the day they come out to me.

    Hate the name, it's a trim level not a brand.

    I gave it a 5 because it will just blend in with all the other boring 4 door cars out there which is a shame for a car with this drivetrain. In fact if it wasn't for the drivetrain this car would be completely uninteresting.

    I like the SS, but I hate the black plastic piece in the lower part of the grill. I would much rather have had the front end of the SS show some resemblance to the new Impala--like the Commodore front end shown here: http://stwot.motortrend.com/files/20...g-1024x640.jpg

    It looks like what it is. A VE with a new front and back and inside. Heaps of cool equipment and updated electronics. It's as much as they could do while retaining the passenger cell. The colour in the photos makes it look very bland. Teh Holden photos had far more presence. I'd wait to see it in the metal before judging it too harshly.

    I gave it a 6. The looks are strong & powerful and nice, but you could slap any badge on it. It isn't distinctly Chevy or even GM - there is an any-car blandness about it. Almost a generic Japanese car, saved by the masculine touches.
