They seem a little generic and not "curvey" enough to be an Olds..but since its your interpretation of the new Oldsmobile..its all good.

A bit fiddling with your Aurora and you've got a way for GM NA to sell the Euro Opel Signum.
I believe I grasped your concept, but it's not that appealing to me, and I also find it a bit generic. These might suffer the same fate as the G6 - they aren't bad, but they won't stand out and there's nothing about them that would make people take them over current offerings.
Alleros nose is tough. Looks like you almost went caddy with the grille. Dont like the MB CLS Roofline. Scalloped doors well executed. Other one is a bit wonky.
People have said it looks generic, and that's accurate, but more importantly it doesn't really look Olds. Personally, I think you should go with something completely different or something which ties into the cues from the brands past. This doesn't do either.
Wow, these are beautiful. I like the second one with the back of a CLS. Very nice job!
the aurora looks like a facelifted version of the Alero. (which ironically looks like a g6.)

The point here (alero) was to make a modern compact (100% production ready) to be released NOW to compete with the civic/corolla. That's why it may look a bit generic.
The problem is that the compact sector is fairly large and there are a variety of choices. You can't make inroads by not being all that interesting, just ask the Nissan Sentra.Originally Posted by Mr. Burns
the sentra was subpar, thats why it failed. The corolla wasnt, thats why its a success. Personally, i dont think my Alero is all too generic, its intended for civic buyers who want something less spacy than the new civic and corolla buyers who think the corollas a tad to drab.Originally Posted by citric acid
The Alero is pretty cool. Nice clean shape, and the front end is pretty nice. It's a good place to start from.
I'd personally re-think the Aurora, though. It's a flagship and it needs some oomph.
Oh, and to pepole who think that Oldsmobile used to be about performance and so on, guess again. The Olds Cutlass used to be the Toyota Camry of the 1970s and early 1980s. Oldsmobile was a mainstream brand for a long time -- placed somewhere in between Chevrolet and Buick -- and when Japan unfairly began to shake GM up, Oldsmobile quietly lost its identity. It went from being America's "nice old car" to "America's Lexus wannabe" (something it did suceed in, too -- just ask the woman who walked into a Lexus dealership back in late '94 wanting the new Aurora).
