I kind of realized that my design was meh. The ‘nostrils’ were only an afterthought to fill the empty space below the bonnet; I thought making the main grill any larger would look freakish and angry. I did not see the door handles until after I submitted it, when I was taking glam shots to put up.
On the other hand, my stats. High driveability, comfort, and prestige, were all taken from real life inspiration. In fact, the engine is quite similar to the ones found in the vehicles I work with (displacement is smaller, but the hp is correct, and I could not duplicate the torque for the life of me). The transverse mounted V6 and All Wheel Drive are the majority of the 105.1 Engineering time; which makes sense, because the car I work on remained relatively unchanged (except for fascia, girding, and lights) between 2009 and 2017. This is what I’ve become familiar with, as a 2000s SUV. It’s not quite the CJ of old. I saw 3 other entries with similar stat breakdowns to mine. More than likely, they drive or work with a similar vehicle.
I tore down my design, to see what I did wrong. In order to score in Utility segment (decently), you cannot have a transverse mounted design. The Utility segment favors 4X4 over All Wheel Drive greatly. I did not realize this was the aim of this segment.
