The name is a mystery i agree... but here it is anyway.

Trying to be an upmarket hatch that's sporty and modern.
Sorry the drawings were a bit rushed.

I might change the front bar, it's a bit boring at the moment.


and just for an idea...

Neat. Though I am not a fan of small cars nor hatchbacks.

Well petrol is a bit more expensive in Australia... about $5.70 a gallon (if my conversions are right), so people are heading away from our traditional market leaders 3.6 V6 and a 4.0 I6, both around 261 HP. (I'm converting metric to imperial so hope the point is not lost, and the dollar is about the same: US$0.96 to AU$1).

Where as my little Golf which only puts out 172 HP can keep up (if not quicker) with both these big Aussie sedans and uses alot less fuel.

I know this is no new concept and we're all sick of it, but nevertheless it is something we have to deal with, and Americas/Australias love of big cars is going to struggle.

I have been practising drawing hatches and little cars to try and get some big car appeal into them and make them more of a mature, family orientated or maybe even a masculine prospect, so large car buyers won't shy away because of image.
