Kia to unveil stunning fastback concept at 2017 Frankfurt autoshow
MotorAuthority
- Viknesh Vijayenthiran - Aug 30, 2017

...Set to debut next month at the 2017 Frankfurt auto show, we’re sad to report the concept doesn’t preview a new model line. Rather, it signals a new body style for one of the Korean brand’s existing models, specifically the next-generation Cee’d compact car.

In a statement, Kia said the concept hints at design elements bound for the new Cee’d which goes on sale in Europe in 2018. The new Cee’d will be closely related to Hyundai’s Elantra/i30 and should include familiar hatchback and wagon body styles, and potentially a five-door fastback...

2018 Porsche Cayenne Debuts As Company Says Its More 911-Like Than Ever

Porsche has officially unveiled the 2018 Cayenne ahead of its debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show.

Looking instantly recognizable, the redesigned crossover has an evolutionary front fascia with larger air intakes and new LED headlights. The familiar styling continues further back but Porsche says the Cayenne has a lower roofline which helps to give it a more athletic stance. Other notable changes include larger alloy wheels and new taillights that echo those of the Panamera Sport Turismo.

Bigger changes occur in the cabin as drivers will find a new center console which has a mix of analogue and digital controls. A more noticeable feature is the 12.3-inch touchscreen infotainment system which has internet connectivity.

The Cayenne is very nice, but is almost indisguishable from the old version. Note the screen for infotaintment... the same as in the Bentley Continental and Porsche Panamera. Very nice

Dear Lincoln, this is how to properly design a rear hatch and full-width lamp. Please copy or move on. That is all.

Are you trolling or are you being serious?

There is absolutely nothing that stands out or is remarkable about the overall design of this new Porsche, and that goes for the rear hatch and lamps. I give them points for the thin strips inside the housing but this is nothing to hold against Lincoln as if it's some sort of new benchmark set.

I know everyone has opinions but come on man... The exterior doesn't even look like it has any sort of design theme.

I've always thought the MKX's center strip should've been thinner like the concept was.

If that was Borg's point, then I'd agree. Otherwise, I also agree that it's nothing spectacular that is the be-all end-all for full width taillights.
