    Kinda looks like a volt at the back, and chevy has so many upcoming models and models that are geting an mce they have 56 cars in their lineup, this would be nice though .

    i see volt, cruze, and Aveo RS in it, which isn't a bad thing. Unlike Caddy, Buick, and GMC, Chevy cars all look completely different at the moment. Even the Traverse and equinox. So I like your idea of bringing design cues from all around because Chevy is such a hard brand to design for, its hard to design "Strictly Chevy", and one of the easiest ways to do it, besides relying on tradition, is to pull inspiration from other cars in the lineup without making them all look identical.

    I love the basic shape and side profile. My only beef is the grill that's too close to the Hyundai Tucson's for comfort.

    I'm not in love with the front, I can't help but thinking that the grllle is upside-down. I also think the rear wheelwell is too small. I realize the perspective will dictate that it's smaller than the front, but it's still a bit on the small side. As usual though, a very interesting design. Great job!

    I like everything but the front end, I would change it entirely in my opinion, but otherwise I like everything else about it.

    I actually like your Grille, it is different, but still a pleasing shape. It looks good so far, however, I wouldn't mind seeing a little refinement in the drawing itself...

    Looks like a better take on a 9-5.

    Only basic changes, but did a little tidy, rear wheel arch is a little more realistic now, few touch ups to the front....

    Cheers for the comments!

    Caddy added, you lot decide which is better.

    I can't edit these anymore as I won't have access to photoshop, but keen to hear opinions/comments.

    The changes look really good. My vote goes to the chevy. I don't think that the vertical headlight setup goes as well with the shape of the body as the horizontal headlights.

    Like the fastback looking shape to it. Both look great to me! More detail would make it almost unbeatable.

    Re: Chevrolet Detroit

    Yeah I'm not too proud of the finishing of these, just busy building my actual car (engine, brakes, suspension, interior all being replaced, going from 2.0 4cyl automatic to a 2.8 single head V6 manual, and hopefully around 70>80hp gain by the end...but it's not a GM) and sorting my life to head overseas. But, I really had a simple idea and just wanted to go with it and get it partly rendered keeping it so it's not over-thought, simple, classy, streamline and still a little unique....err... hopefully.
    Thanks for the comments everyone, they're always welcome and helpful.
