    2010 Chi Onyx

    Onyx is the compact sedan for my fictional volume seller brand "Chi". Chi competes with brands like Ford, Toyota, Honda, Nissan, Chevy, etc. This is the second generation version. Coupe, convertible, wagon and hatchback models will follow soon after.

    The design was inspired by spy shots of the current Acura TL. I noticed that most compact cars have a "feminine" design so i looked to the Camaro as another source of inspiration to butch it up a bit. Anyway i really hope you guys like it.. I took a lot risks creating this chop and even applied some new techniques. so enjoy....

    Looks good but I would make two changes.

    1) I would make the roof slightly taller. I understand that you were aiming for a coupe-like roofline, but the only humans that will be able to fit in the back are those of the dwarf variety.

    2) The fuel-cap needs moving upwards and shrinking a bit. Or replaced by a 'normal' fuel-cap. In my opinion, it looks incredibly awkward and 'stuck on' perched between the wheels arch and rear haunches. Also, the Mustang logo needs to be removed.

    I like it, a bit reminiscent of the previous gen astra, but cool look all around. I do agree with ACcartoons, the fuel filler cap can use a little editing.

    It reminds me more so of the Saturn Aura.



    !!!
    IF It's A Chevrolet & RWD, Don't ride in it!!!

    ALL Chevy's NEED to be FWD/F-AWD!!!

    If it's a Toyota/Lexus/Scion, Don't ride in/drive it!!
