    I saw one this week in black. Side on I was immediately reminded of the Epica.

    IMO it looks too much like the second series Cruze front-on, Epica in profile and not much outstanding from the rear except for the Camaro-esque separate square lights

    A very bland design in a crowded market of other bland designs which has steadily lost ground, like large sedans, to small cars and SUV's.

    I have a 2.0 turbo (ltg) stateside. It runs nice. It is fully loaded. I think it is under estimated.
    Mine is 259 hp and 310 ftlbs of torque. They sold a bunch in the states. Having said that the rest of my cars are v8s so there is that

    We hired one last year and it was so underpowered it was scary to drive.
