Looks less like a Chrysler, so it’s got that going for it.

That looks proportionate, I don't like how new BMW's have headlights thinner than a strip of RGB LEDs but with grills that are (literally) the size of my head

I'm bothered more by those stupid dot-surrounds for the headlights. Happy they didn't jump on the bandwagon of copying angel-eyes, but it looks like something you'd get at PepBoys. Perhaps after a few lines of Grey Poupon it would look better?

Bentleys/RR cars always had big grills.

It looks great. These cars have always had massive grilles.

Nothing wrong with large grille per se, as long as it's not flanked on both sides by tiny headlights.

Have you seen the Lexusís grills?
Itís a huge front grill with some Lexus accents.

The BMW X6 does have some huge grills too.

Yeah, not sure why the lights have individual LED's, even new Jeep Wrangler's have proper circular LED headlights.

Design looks very early 90's-ish, not a fan. Sick interior though. People that can afford Bentley's will probably be busy buying up distressed assets at 50% off instead of buying cars though.

Looks a million times better to me than that Marklar or Barclay or whatever a few threads below. Lights aren't great.

Seems like most manufacturers are succumbing to the big grill syndrome.

Haha, but not her? Like parents riding bikes with their kids but only the kids are wearing helmets.
