First, the Infiniti looks like a reject from "Deathrace 2000."  How did reptilian work out for the Isuzu Vehi-Cross?
Second, the Bimmer is better-looking but...isn't the slavish commitment to the double-kidney grille restraining their true creativity?  It's similar to looking at a picture of the Kennedy clan.  The pedigree is apparent but the looks aren't always  there.  (I think that came to mind because that toothy Kennedy grille is kinda similar to the BMW version.)  But you could probably say the same about all the German marques.  I understand branding but they really do start to look stale and in need of new inspiration.
Just don't use Roger Corman movies for that inspiration!

If the X3 looked like the X6 they would have a best seller with the turbo engine.
