    Talking An Emergency Chevy Cruze MCE



    I've been encouraged to flex my photoshop skills on the Chevy Cruze and address some of the issues I have mainly relating to the front fascia and side profile. So here it is my version of a Chevy Cruze MCE. Constructive feedback welcomed!

    Hummmmm, I think the panel before the C piller would look better as glass than painted. Not sure of that particular HID setup.

    Bottom of the bumper, is that a LED strip? It makes me think of Hundia.

    All it needs is a more advanced headlight. Same shape, more detailed components.

    The front is not the problem, its the rear end.

    I thought about making the original black piece before the c-pilar a rear quarter glass panel but I didn't like how it looked. Yes that is a led strip from the Chevy Orlando of course.

    I don't see the link...The headlights, the grill, angles, and lower bumper covers are completely different on both cars. Now if you said Orlando you may have had an argument.

    Sorry, this doesn't work for me at all. It reminds me of a Scion. Besides that, the Bow Tie is on backwards.

    I like the painted c pillar. The headlights look to Nissan Maxima for my tastes.

    As for the Cobalt comment, I think they're refering to the opening in the grill not necessarily the overall look.

    That looks a lot worse than the Cruze. I think the Cobalt look was good to get away from in the first place, don't make her go back to it.

    Re: An Emergency Chevy Cruze MCE

    I think this is one of the first Cruze re-do's i've seen that completely scrap the front end and start from scratch, so thats never easy. The design itself im not a huge fan of, but looks like you did a lot of photoshop work and you only get better with practice. With that said, since your interested in completely changing the look..try the back. Thats hideous as it is and might get some more positive feedback from others around here

    as one of the few who thinks the Cruze looks great as is, i stand by its design. Im not sure that making the front end so truck like is a step in the right direction, but i do like your choice of headlights
