OK, nothing to get too excited about, but looks rather nice - a lot better for instance than the forthcoming Fiesta...

Again; Generic, amorphous shape with overt styling cues grafted on.

Within the constraints of having to seat 4 adults in 10 foot of car, a wheel at each corner, an engine and crash protection and deliver it for 9k I'm not sure what you're expecting to get.

Looks to be different in some of the other photos.  Not necessarily better, but it has some sort of black infill.

The artists impressions look nice but the pictures definitely look like Esther Rantzen wearing a brace.
