WTF? Come up with your own ideas guys...
 
Focus:

Sentra:
http://im1.shutterfly.com/media/47a2...D720/ry%3D480/

Forte:

This is tantamount to the recent Chinese knockoffs.

I always thogught the Focus sedan's rear was a bit pedestrian and isn't as destinctive as the front;better coming than going.

Totally agree.

I'm only slightly ashamed to say that I've mistaken other cars for the '12 Focus from afar based on the back end.

Don't care either way, about time we got refreshes on the Sentra and Forte, both of them are painfully bland in today's automotive design world.

Taking cues from the Focus means Ford is doing it right.

The Focus hatch from behind reminds of me of the Saturn Astra and the new Impreza wagon.

Yeah but come on, those Forte tail lights would almost fit directly on a Focus. [:)]

It is conservative, but I'd rather that than pug fugly like the '96-'99 Taurus.

But still, those Sentra taillights are a near carbon copy. No excuse for that. [facepalm]

True, but you know what they say, "imitation is the sincerest form of flattery"... [confused]

It's not like this is anything new though. And if you really look at all those tail lights, though they appear similar are considerably different. What's the brand that looks like a Cadillac with the upside down Acura logo?

I say the Sentra's are close enough that Joe Lunchpail or Sally Slushbox would mistake one for the other.

The Escalade and F150 are by homegrown Chinese companies, something like People's China Good Make Cars Company......
