@acechip Ha. Nice one, sir, much appreciated. Blasphemy? Far from it: All pukka SUV-s looks like JEEPs, or Land Rovers or Mercedes G-Wagens, especially 'Perfect' and therefore pseudo ones like the Creta. 'Imitation is the best form....' Although, to be fair now, that car has ripped off: rear design from the new Jeep Cherokee and/or Citroen Cactus C4, and its interior design from the Maserati Ghibli, and its front from the new Ford design language (from Ecosport to Edge to Explorer), not from the Wrangler and/or Grand Cherokee. The Suzuki Grand Vitara, like the Jimny and Samurai before it, were cheap or shall we say inespensive clones of JEEPs. Very consciously and deliberately so. And so on. Such is the chain of East Asian copy-catting and piracy (in all domains of consumer and industrial goods). Going back decades. Mahindra, with its 'original' designs has at least tried, and IMO failed very abysmally, at being non-mimetic. It is not ironic, then, that it is now the owner of....Ssangyong. Which is one reason why the Tata Safari, old and new, is so much more likeable, apart from being better? Like the Duster, too. But Mahindra-s sell, while the Suzuki Grand Vitara never did in India, so. It isn't for nothing that there is a Chinese firm making a clone of the range Rover Evoque, after, that is, Hyundai has mimicked it with the i20 'Elite', etc. The American and European (esp Italians and French) lead with design origination, even for Japanese firms like Mazda let alone the Koreans (all Hyundai and Korean cars are styled in Europe by Europeans) and Chinese, and, of course, engineering and technology (with some Japanese model-specific exceptions, though more on cost/price rather than originality or cutting-edge-ness.) Toyota has been trying, first with the new generation Lexuses, now across its range, to introduce some more meaningfully-original, 'authentic' yet not-bland/dated/dull designs, as has Honda sometimes, and now especially Nissan with its leading CUVs: the Rogue/Qashquai, the Juke, the X Trail and the Murano. There will very soon be a Murano-clone from Hyundai, surely! But even Nissan, even now, decades after it has become a major and accomplished O(sic)EM carmaker, can't help itself and Infiniti, for many/most models: it is busy doing really-amped-up, exaggerated versions of Maserati's famously Italian designs. The next-gen Sunny and Micra will look like over-heated, red-hot-chilly pepper Maserati-s, cheap build etc or not. (Google the next-gen Micra concept car, the Maxima, all Infiniti-s, etc). The soon to be launched Maserati Levante sports/performance 'SUV' will end up looking like an Infiniti Qsomething, even though it will in a sense be at the design-origin of those cars......which is why it will be cohesive and restrained and 'shout quietly' rather than 'loudly', if you will. That's just why one just has to love American, Italian and even French cars, brands, and their makers, no? Alright, Germans too, maybe, sometimes, occasionally. "If their dealers, after-sale service and reliability is adequate", someone (not me) says.
