    Chevy Equinox Sedan

    I have always wanted to try this because the line to cut away a trunk is already there.

    Bear with my use of Microsoft paint please Comments are welcome.

    funny, the c-pillar sort of reminds me of the new 9-5's

    Overall, I think it is a very interesting idea, but some of the details need a little more work to make them fit in with a sedan-sized vehicle.

    I feel like the fender bulges need to be toned down a bit, and the wheels need to grow, or the bulges need to shrink to take a little more of the gap away. I also think that the fender bulges should also keep their round shape rather than the slight oval shape you have given them.

    Other than those few items, cool idea and I'd love to see you expand upon it!

    It looks an awful lot like a Saturn Aura to me, other than the C-pillar. Just a thought.

    The first thing that came to my mind was "SAAB 95". That's certainly not a bad thing.

    In a way, I quite like the over-the-top flared wheel-arches. Gives it some character.

    If I was being picky, I would tell you to shorten the front overhang to give it a more RWD appearance, but overall I think you did great for MS Paint.

    I agree. It looks good with the huge fender arches. This is an interesting idea.

    Looks much better than I expected when I read the title! Looks very tough. The photoshop could be cleaned up a bit, but it shows promise! Do the Traverse!!!

    Give it RWD proportions, and it could come off as a 300C competitor. It looks to have that certain "bling" factor and upright stance that the 300 does. Interesting design study!

    hm, my post from earlier didnt save, but that is very interesting. a 300C competitor is exactly what I was thinking as it as that chunkyness to it. Only thing is Chevy doesn't need a "luxury" anything, thats what buick and Caddy are for. But, pretty cool idea anyway

    Thanks for all the helpful feedback I will try to make better rear wheel drive proportions this week sometime. All the comments are greatly appreciated!

    I had time to fix up the design so here is a longer wheel base with better RWD proportions.

    Let me know what you think.
