I so badly want to see a car with these proportions (Short nose, raked back windshield, low roofline, rear glass that flows into the deck lid). Yeah the Cruze may be a big upgrade and an all around solid car, but who can honestly say they get excited over the way it looks?
Everyone seems to be afraid to make an affordable, sleek car, and it's getting boring. VW seems to be the only one who can do it. (And unfortunately we don't get to enjoy their efforts)
