Youíre absolutely right. I forgot the first rule of car marketing: You can sell a young personís car to an old person, but you canít sell an old personís car to a young person.

You've got a good point. Both have windshields which makes them basically identical. Can't believe I couldn't see it before.

Oh. You'll have to tell @Spuds that wasn't a Buick wagon he's been driving.

I figured out the difference but it was so so very hard to tell.

One is white and one is blue....

They're very well done clones of each other.

As good as they are I think those civics look like shit. I'll gladly drive a slower car that doesn't look like it was shit out by a transformer

Is it just these people taking pictures of it at 20cm up that make the car look so high? Specifications say it’s not a monster truck but all these pictures make it look riding high.

Has there been any actual news since the announcement, or are we still debating what vehicles the new BRZ resembles?

86 pages, that's right 86

(and 1200 posts)

The original concept had a Supra like door and fender. The side window too. I guess they didn't waste the design effort, they cannibalized it.

The original concept had a Supra-like door and fender. The side window too. I guess they didn't waste the design effort, they simply cannibalized it on to the Supra eight years later!!! The Supra also really bares little resemblance to it's concept. I guess some features that didn't make it to production might be in the updated Supra in a few years.

No need to stress over the Cvic any longer, as the 2022 model is now as BLAND as it can be:


https://www.motortrend.com/news/2022...erything-know/


https://automobiles.honda.com/future-cars/2022-civic


Styled and designed by committee, just like the 2022 BRZ.


[Design by committee is a pejorative term for a project that has many designers involved but no unifying plan or vision.]

Allegedly roof height is ever so slightly lower (but much depends on local ride height, I've seen various dimensions for the twins roof height ranging from 1290mm to 1320mm - unclear if the difference is inclusion of the shark fin antenna).

One thing I think is making it look taller is the new bonnet - it lacks the low and flat appearance of the gen I, instead it appears they have just raised it all a little and rounded it off. In truth it may still be the same raw measurement from the ground to the top of the bonnet, but it looks taller due to the changes in styling.

Lastly, for some reason cars seem to ride higher in the USA compared to other markets. The wheel gap in USA models often seems to be 10mm higher than the same model in other markets. Could be optical illusion, or maybe it is a change made due to local driving conditions and preferences... not sure.
