Re: New Design Language in Automotive - Copy (oops Inspriation)
Exactly my thoughts on seeing this latest cutting edge design from Hyundai.Those lights directly come from a Jag.The rear taillamps are Mercedes C class inspired.The body a mix of Maserati and the German trio.Do these people ever spare a thought about the countless toils the original designers would have spent in finalising these iconic shapes.Sad.
There is a reason for this. VW and Skoda are coming under the larger umbrella of Volkswagen group. Similarly Nissan and renault are in a mutually beneficial strategic alliance since a long time. These partnerships often contribute mutually in resources and technical aspects while maintaining individual brand identities globally.
Lakshit had you searched a couple more pages of TIAGO thread then a more closer and identical twin you would have seen. Try comparing the side profile of TIAGO and FIGO in Golden color. In my this post I mentioned about this similarity. Ye Dekho, I am attaching the pic below of Golden Figo for reference.
