Thumbs down New Magna

Ok I know this subject had been dealt with before, but now I have started to see the new model Magna on the road, I have to say it, it is BUTT UGLY.
Geez and these people used to laugh at look of a AU, man Mitsubishi designers must have been on happy pills that day, I thought it looked bad in pics, but couldnt be that bad in real life, how wrong I was. It even makes the VY look good. hmmm , maybe GMH sent their deigners to Mitsubishi.
Anyone else seen them on the road, and think the same?

Re: New Magna

I think it looks okay from the front. But Mitsubishi lost the plot leaving the same back end on the car.

Re: New Magna

Yeh, its that new front, mitsubishi wants to make everything look alike - even the new COLT looks like the magna from the front, the only thing is, its hard to make something adopt a new look without changing the whole car, and yes the boot should have been changed aswell!!!

Lets hope the next one due in 05 is a bit better, because i cant see mitsubishi's market share increasing with the current one.

I still can't understand the design of the front, it still baffles me how they came up with it. I really don't like it

Oh well, just my opinion!

Re: New Magna

Thats what I think too Aussie Pete... the front end is so standalone that it's like they went "Hey, we just made a nice front end" and then went "Oh sh!t, what do we put this on? How about the new Magna" but then went out and got drunk to celebrate and forgot to do the rest of the car.

The back end was nice, on the old front end, but it can't be said the same now.

Also, what about the AWD Magna, will these be " cosmetically upgraded" too?

My thoughts exactly. I really don't think it looks too bad in real-life, until you come across the rear.

Re: New Magna

Magna or Camry.

Which is the uglier car?

I vote the lard arse Camry. Although the Magna is pretty close.

the AWD Magna gets a facelift in September with the Ralliart edition to follow soon after. An aftermarket bodykit maybe comming soon. Here is the initial design from Aussie Magna, though it may take a little while to be released, as the TE-TJ kit is currently being produced.

Re: New Magna

Why did they go radical for the Magna in Australia, us Aussie's have proven we dont like new radical futeristic design's, the AU proved that and being not so long ago it should have been in there mind to be a little bit conservative in the design for the new Magna, oh well probably a lesson learnt.
