    Buick Hatch

    Not quite sure why, but I am not real happy with the look of this one. Feel free to give suggestions as I like the overall idea but couldn't quite get the idea down into a drawing

    The front looks like a brick. If you sloped the hood more and pushed the windscreen forward a tad, it would look a lot better.

    This vehicle would be more of a midsize hatch. Think of it as a regal hatch more or less. Thanks for the compliment civilzues Sounds good Vette dude. I will try moving the a-pillar forward and softening the front end.

    Quick update based on comments from civilzues and vette dude. I have reworked the front end and extended the a-pillar.

    Yea it looks like the proportions might be a little off. The wheel and tire are as wide as one door. Either the wheels are huge or the doors are not long enough. personally i would like to see the doors a little longer to get the proportions correct.
    I'm sorry, if you were right, I'd agree with you.

    Here is an alternative. This would be the size of a three door volkswagen golf. Let me know if you like this style or if I should try and fix up the five door version.

    I love it! As I have said from the begining, GM needs to bring over the 5-door Astra and this is a nice representation of it in Buick form!!

    Proportions are a bit odd, glass house possibly too low? I'm not big on that taillight.... I really don't care though because it looks great.

    Thanks a lot Blair1118 that was one of the inspirations for the drawing. Another was the Seat Leon.

    Thanks for the compliment Joe88. I based the taillight off the lacrosse because I also used the lacrosse's headlights. Just a little family resemblance.
