It’s not easy to find much to say about this vehicle.
All the features on this car, barring the plastic mouldings around the hem are straight off the saloon. They are all masssaged and tweaked to fit the package and credit is due here for this being a much less forced exercise than the translation of Porsche 911 cues onto the Cayenne. It also says something about the blandness of the saloon.
It’s hard to read this as an SUV. The scale is not easy to read from a photo. It has more of the character of a family hatchback and a not-very-exciting one at that. I don’t suppose the customers want their X to look like an SUV but want the high H-point more than anything else.
Putting this aside, the performance figures are astounding as is the actual use of gull-wing doors. Yet again I repeat my wish they’d added a little more spice this is stew. I think Tesla can sustain a bit more visual interest.
