When it was first brought to the auto show, it was gaining millions of likes on the internet and hundreds of thousands of enthusiastic sighs. But then comes the serial adaptation of the whole “wow effect” might disappear somewhere. We picked up 5 concepts that serial debut became boring gray mass.
Volkswagen Concept A – Tiguan (N5)
Archetype of crossover “Tiguan” was strongly pleased. And predatory face and inflated hips and romping roofline. Honestly, we were so anxious to debutant Geneva 2006 went into series with minimal changes.
But the reality was much more stocky – strict corporate style, no bright accessory, not a single button unbuttoned.
To debut its mid-size sedan Suzuki was preparing a long time. A very long time.
And now look what of all this beauty turned out … The most banal series sedan 2009? Not surprisingly, the boring-boring-boring Kizashi was a disappointment not only in design but also in commercial terms.
Opel Antara GTC Concept – Antara
From the first Opel crossover we were waiting too much. And bright conceptual Antara GTC really lit at the Frankfurt Salon in 2005. Trim, muscular, nice …
Next “Antara” was really boring.
Jaguar C-XF and FX
After S-Taipa new business-class sedan from the “Jaguar” we were waiting with fear. But a great concept car C-XF, blew the Detroit auto show in January of 2007, it seemed reassured even the skeptics …
It’s only been six months, and we saw in Frankfurt serine “XF.” Saw and feared. Dzhezus Christ, who came up with the idea to replace an elegant optics of the concept on these lights? Eww…
Nissan Qashqai Concept – Qashqai
Someone would say that this conceptual outfit in serial car would have no chance to become a bestseller. Of Course. But still a little bit insulting.
Especially when the serial urban crossover looks a little underwhelming
