Just a quick poll to see whether you like the look of the new 2-hole front.







And the old one, in Vivid Blue (above is Sapphire):

The grill is a downgrade, and the wheels don't look as sporty, so clash with the rest of the styling too.

A new one in Saphire would match our Aygo Blue perfectly - if I didn't need 5 doors a Saphire type S would be tempting......

Agreed.

I wonder where they got the ideas from, surely they must conduct marketing samples,

maybe they asked David Plunkett and Stevie Wonder :)

I think they are trying to separate the 5dr and the 3dr. IMO, the psudo exec car styling touches do not gel. They have not changed any sheet metal by the look of it as that is expensive to re do.

I think a TypeR grill is a necessity on the new model.

Oh, and Vivid Blue Pearl will always look better than any other blue :p

It is a total disaster. The rear bumper too...
The whole thing looks like a cheaper version for China.

I will second that. I think the new Type S grill looks good but I would personally change it from what it was before.
