    Yeah, the side profile shot did it for me. I'm liking this.

    However, that character line... I kinda wish it'd connected (to) the head and tail lights, instead of dropping just before. It'd also be nice to see something like the black trim from the 300M Special return to break up the height of the car.

    hey, no one is complaining about the "shark fin" ant......
    I think it's ok.
    In all honesty , the 200 is not my car ...
    I will take an upgraded 300 this fall to be my everyday beater ...
    The Challenger is for spring/summer/fall use only - dam snow/salt ...

    call me crazy (que up the responses!) but i see a fair amount of A7 in those pics. not at all a bad thing imo!!! interior looks nice too...perhaps even better than 300. :thumbsup:

    Does anyone know will there be panoramic roof/sunroof available as an option, not just the small traditional one.

    Styling is subjective, but for me this is ok - not that attractive as the 200C concept. Maybe bit too safe and "Asian". Most likely it's the rear fenders which does the "Asian" look for me. Looking directly from behind the butt looks too narrow compared to cabin and hips should be wider IMO.

    I see lot's of Audi 5dr A5 and A7 in there, but I would have really hoped for hatch rear door instead of regular trunk, since the silhuette is so 4dr coupe anyway like those Audis. This would have created more practicality for familyman like myself without loosing 4dr coupeish looks.

    THE ARRIVAL OF THIS NEW 200 ENDS THE ERA OF BAD AMERICAN CARS.

    Let the stages of grief begin for those invested in that meme and let the critical onus now shift to the complacency of JapanInc carppliance manufacturers and the Mazda deathwatch.

    That front end is screaming for a Lancia grille. I will sooooo HATE SM for not bringing it to Europe if that's the case

    The "belt line" is to tie Lancia identity into this car when it goes to Europe.

    Well imagine that, the rear end is strangely reminiscent of the Maserati Ghibli. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the interior, dash, steering wheel buttons for the shifter, and oh yeah I figured out what that button next to the cup holders in the console was. The cover for the usb port, SD card etc slides, and that is the release. Fascinating.

    They really need some consistency on the shape of the LED DRL. Also, notice the 2 radar based cruise control sensors on the front of the dark grey pic as opposed to just one on my 2013 300C. Why is that?

    Wow, I gotta say, I really like it more now!

    Definite A7 look, but that's not a bad thing IMO.

    Now to see what the rear headroom is like. Dart roof is too low for me, Cherokee is too low as well with the panoramic sunroof (that I really want)

    Agreed. Should be on the driver's side. Easier to remember when pulling up to a pump to refuel.

    I agree there, but the passenger side is supposedly a safer location.

    Ha! strong but i do get where your coming from.
    Really though we all new what was coming, no surprises here. Although conservative - it's not totally offensive.

    I'm wishing for a radical departure from the timeworn Asian car styling themes of the last 15 years that are endlessly regurgitated.
