Do BEAT or i10 look like Citroën or is it the other way round?!

    Have a look at these pics. They are of the Peugeot Citroën. Can you see any remote semblance of i10 or BEAT in them? Well, if you do, Citroën probably copied i10 and BEAT more than five years back!

    Well I have seen these in real. They donot look anything like an i10 or a Beat. They are much cuter in real and a lot popular here in The Netherlands.

    Sorry... I was trying to say that BEAT and i10 have some borrowed elements from Citroën. :)

    If it shares resemblence with i10 then blame it on the Hyundai & Chevrolet.

    C1 showcased in 2005 and i10 / beat showcased in 2007.

    Interesting finding about Daewoo Matiz

    Seems like the front bumper has been borrowed by Punto Evo

    Dunno about the i10, but the Beat was surely inspired from the aliens of the movie ''Alien''.:evilsmile

    LOL. Beat & Ritz are the worst designed car. Ugly cars I ever seen in my life.
