As a whole, I don't particularly care for it. I like the front end, but not the back end, and in particular the tail lights. From the side - it'* your typical cookie-cutter car. From what I can tell of the interior, it looks cheap. The doors, the dash, the seats, and I hate the two tone interior.

The tan leather wrapped dash and seats won't be what'* in production. I really like that feature. Those wheels are also 20s while the production models get 18/19 IIRC.

I just hope that dash doesn't turn into hard plastic. Chrysler does that crap, you can buy a $43k grand cherokee but the dash is still made of cheap hard plastic.

Not impressed, it should be way more stylish than it is, looks very generic.... And yeah, the tan dash is only on the preview model, who knows what that'll turn into for the regular ones.

The production interior should look like this: (looks good to me)

Other things only on the show car:
Unique 20-inch “shadow chrome” wheels and performance tires
A slightly lower suspension ride height
High-performance brake rotors with painted brake calipers
Custom interior trim color, including a leather-wrapped dash
Concept version of the Pontiac “dart”
Unique Show Car paint

Yeah, I like that interior -----^^^^^^^^

Looks pretty good. But still no liking a few of the designs on the outside. I agree with Archon, the side profile looks like 30 other cars already on the road...

I already miss Bonnevilles...
