    I like how they don't even bother disguising the Vision's Fiat heritage. They literally popped out the Fiat logo and wrote Dodge in the blank space left behind.

    True badge engineering still exists - it's all dependent on the market they will be sold in.

    In this case, given the volumes involved, it really would raise the price of the car considerably to give it a genuine Dodge grille and such... Old Chrysler had figured that one out: give every brand the same shape logo!

    Or, under Iacocca's reign, give them all the SAME logo (the Pentastar) regardless if the car was a Dodge, Chrysler or Plymouth.

    I mean I can "kinda" see the evolution from the 2nd gen Neon, but I agree with Bob FUGLY.

    Sorry, I don't see evolution from second gen Neon at all.

    Looks more like a 2nd gen Caliber sedan than a 3rd gen Neon.

    I don't see any evolution from the neon either. From what I've seen though, I kinda like it. :D

    No, there is no evolution in styling from the last Neon. Which means there's no "cross-eyed" headlamps, either - which is a good thing.

    It's a Fiat Tipo with a Dodge split-crosshair grille.

    I'm not offended by the styling, but I'm not gushing over it either.

    I wonder if Dodge Concord (from AMC concord) would work for this body better than neon.
