Dang, that would be a bummer.

Wow, can't believe 15-yr later I can say, "I think I willl miss Chris Bangle". Maybe Adrian Von Hoydonk, just don't get SUV design being an European. Culture is big influence in ID design.

I think I figured out what is wrong with it... The overall profile is much more like the X3 - which I always thought looked like a shoe.

I think the back of the new design looks a little bit like my Honda Odyssey:

Reminds me of the E53. Which I have. And which I like. Never did cotton to the E70 in anything but M or M sport trim.

Personally I dont think there is enough appeal in the design..
For me to love a car you need to look at it from more than just one angle and be able to say "I really like the look of this car" and put a smile on your face!

I remember when I had an e39 i'd walk up to it and think it was such a timeless design whether you talk up to it from the front, rear , or side..

If you have to hunt around the car and look for your hero view then to me it really isn't so pretty.. to me I can hardly find a view of the exterior that i "love"

Interior on the other hand is completely different. I love it!

There has definitely been some back and forth between BMW and Honda over the years.

Definitely going the opposite direction with this design. I was looking in adding a sister to my 05, but I may have to get her a cousin, X6

I've seen a few now at the dealer and LA Auto Show. To me, the F15 looks like an E70 that went through the Toyota design studio for a minute before being released.
