Gran coupes except 6 and 8 never look good imo. 4 was ok. But 3 and 5 I'm hoping the same is true for this so that the next gen 2 coupe and m2 will still look good.

IMO it looks like a Kia not a corolla, I also don't mind the backside, it's the front I don't like so much.

I was thinking the new Genesis sedan! Either way, not feeling the new look.

That's because of that stupid rear bumper design.

I am just not seeing the ugliness in the Gran Coupe.
If it's a comparison likeness to Ford's and Toyota's, I need to see it in person. The European journalist articles and their YouTube videos I've seen on the car were positive about the design.

Lmfao the hate is REAL. I will say though the shape is weird, especially in pics, it didn't look as horrendous in the flesh.

The front end actually looks decent, and i hear it drives solid for the price point its at.

Having said that (larry david voice), I would never buy one for myself.

Maybe for my wife LOL!

BMW's M235 looks like a lowered SUV and the X2 looks like a tall sedan. What's going on here?

even an Audi A3 or new CLA look much better and fit in with their model lineup.

My thoughts exactly... it reminds me of my GT's rear end, which treads along the "wagon" category.

Honestly, not the biggest fan of this car unfortunately.

I tried to like it in the configurator but on the street these photos are showing me a vehicle I'd never purchase.
