Future BMWs will have a very daring design despite strong criticism
The German brand will transform every model
With its huge grille, the BMW 4 Series impresses and deeply divides fan communities. Fortunately, only the front end is subject to such a debate because the rest of the car is particularly balanced and enjoys the same elegance as the previous models. This is clearly not the case with the iX, which has changed everything for better or worse.
It has to be said that the electric SUV has not gone smoothly in terms of design! Like a hastily cut block of granite, the iX doesn't look sharp from any angle. And despite the strong criticism of the iX on social networks, BMW's head of design, Domagoj Dukec, confirms that this trend will apply to future models.
The strategy adopted by the propeller brand is to stand out from the crowd, whatever the cost. Dukec affirms that it is necessary to dare to change in order to attract new customers, even if it means making cars with a daring design. You have to please the customers, not the whole world. In doing so, BMW is going in the opposite direction from the methods adopted by Audi and Mercedes.
At Audi, the range evolves very timidly at each generation change, to the point where it becomes harder to distinguish new vehicles. At Mercedes, the models are too similar to each other, especially when you see the new C-Class, which is just a smaller copy of the E-Class and S-Class. We can therefore expect a brutal stylistic change for the next models, starting with the future i4 and 7 Series.
