speedfreak975 wrote Becuase it had the slant nose...and popup headlights which that made it unique mostly as feature Those arnt allowed anymore so making a modern bmw look vastly unique then other series in family is hard. I guess they could have gone with completely risky design that resembles no bmw and place a grill, might have been a risk not willing to take

I agree they might not have wanted to take any risks. I think most German car brands nowadays are guilty of that.

speedfreak975 wrote That part of being a bmw. You have to be able to tell its BMW from far away. But as new models go it looks good and slightly fresh than 4 and 6 series

Well, the original 8 Series looked completely different from all the other BMWs, but you could tell it was a BMW by the grille. This is a bit disappointing in comparison.

speedfreak975 wrote Thats taken directly from a source however the car has alot of ??? As it still somewhat defies logic. I added pics of it tho not sure about these specs its still very vague feel free not to accept entry. As i said the entire car is stilk somewhat mystery

Well, I think Rinspeed will reject it, as you didn't add the engine, but you really need some dimensions like length, width, height if you want to add it to the website. Of course, the best thing would be to wait until the car enters production and the car is no longer a mystery.

About the specs you posted, why does it first say 5007 hp and then 3006 hp?

Since 2014 Nissan Juke
carcrasher88 wrote Pretty obvious that the successor will be a localized version of the Kicks.

I'm not so sure about that. I have found very few rumors on Japanese websites about the Kicks coming to Japan, and the rumors about the Juke's successor are that it may be based on the Gripz concept from 2015. It is also expected to feature an e-Power mild hybrid engine, like the Note.

I think it's possible that the Kicks might be the Juke successor in America, but not in Europe and Japan. The Juke sells a lot better in the last two areas, and there might also be more demand for a stylish, customizable and turbocharged compact crossover in these areas. The Kicks is much more a budget crossover than the Juke after all.

Mieguy wrote I might rephrase my question: We need Jeep (Europe) but do we need to do two separate Grand Cherokee pages if they are the same in USA and Europe?

I think we have been over this before, but yes. We need Jeep (Europe), because some models are different for the European market. Of course, some models look the same for both markets, but if we only list them on the Jeep page, Jeep (Europe) will be very empty and not representative of the European market. Listing those cars twice seems like the best option, even if I would prefer not having to.

2014-2017 Chrysler 200 Series II [CUSW]
Mark0 wrote "It was discontinued due to lack of profitability and as the result of FCA’s strategy of exclusively manufacturing trucks in North America."

FCA have some very brigh leadership. Mixing US and Italian isn't good thing. Cadillac Allante and Chrysler TC for example.
Damn it, Fiat is most common car in Serbia, they have factory here, but people don't like them and are only buying them for low prices.

All of Chrysler has been a sinking ship or many many years. I don't think any existing American car manufacturer has been close to bankruptcy as many times as Chrysler.
In the 70s, they failed to adapt to the economic situation, and kept building big cars when fuel prices were very high. They partnered with Mitsubishi -> failed.
In the 80s, they were saved by a cheap and uninspiring compact car (the K-Car) and bought AMC, which wasn't doing well at all, just so they could have Jeep.
In the late 90s, they partnered with Mercedes -> didn't work. At the end of the 2000s, they hit rock bottom and merged with Fiat (which struggles to compete with big corporations like Renault-Nissan, Volkswagen, GM).

Now FCA's boss has greatly improved Chryslers when you compare them to the 2000s models, but they aren't competitive at all if you look beyond price (and horsepower in case of Dodge). Dodge and Jeep crossovers are doing very well (funny, because they aren't getting very many facelifts), as the world is crazy about crossovers right now. Chrysler has two cars left (one is outdated, the other in a category that nobody wants anymore). Fiat tries to live off of the 500, which is losing popularity, Lancia is pretty much dead, Alfa Romeo's grand revival isn't exactly going as planned (although the Stelvio does well of course), Maserati has an outdated sports car, some very expensive sedans and a crossover.

FCA's boss has also been desperately looking for another corporation to buy all of FCA, which doesn't look very good, while he is trying to make all of his brands to go 100% crossover. Good job!

*Both the Chrysler TC and Cadillac Allanté were bad ideas because they were built in Italy and imported to the US, which made them ridiculously expensive. I think the Allanté could have done reasonably well if it was built in the US instead.

Hmm, I personally like the Juke more. I know the Juke is quite a controversial car, but I think the front looks somewhat clean. The Kona's design has been received quite well, but I personally feel like the front is overdesigned.

Since 2018 Nissan Kicks
carcrasher88 wrote Replacement for the Juke, highly underpowered, with a naturally aspirated 1.6 that produces 125hp and 115 lb-ft of torque, pretty much all of it's competition here in the US has more power, with some models getting as good or in some cases better fuel economy.

Nice looking vehicle, but it's engine will likely make this vehicle less popular than it's predecessor...and it's guaranteed to be much more boring to drive.

It's interesting to see how this car does, as I've read a couple of very different opinions about it.

Some people say it will perform worse than the Juke, because of the weak engine and the general lack of style.
Other people say it will perform better, because the looks aren't so polarizing, and it has a lot more cargo capacity (which is one of the main weak points of the Juke).

Since 2017 Suzuki XBee
carcrasher88 wrote That is true, but when you look at how many similarly classified vehicles Japanese manufacturers have in their lineups, including models shared between manufacturers (which is all of them except Honda), it's not really that hard to see them co-exist.

Also, if Jeep can sell the Renegade, Compass, and Cherokee, all with overall dimensions that aren't actually that far apart from each other, Suzuki can have both this and the Ignis.

I guess you are right, the Japanese market is quite unique in that sense.
As for the Jeeps, there is some differences that work for them. The Renegade is a subcompact and operates in a different segment, whereas the Compass is more of a city car and the Cherokee more off-road capable with an optional V6.

While nearly all of the XBee is inspired by the smaller Hustler, the split 'floating roof' look of the rear is more like that of the latest Swift.

I really like it, but I do feel like it is a direct competitor to Suzuki's own Ignis.

The Majesta, which is slightly bigger and more luxurious than the other models, has become redundant because of the Lexus LS.
