There is a rail on the rear, but it is very difficult to see against the dark green paintwork I chose. Anyway, congratulations to the top five - you may have your work cut out deciding between them!
I’ll gladly take that. I understand that my design may have ended up looking a bit more exciting or sporty for the demographic you’re trying to go for. Thanks for the neat and clear reviews, appreciate it.
The final 5
Overall a really nice design, but in this group it’s a bit too much like a van and also the design just isn’t luxurious enough. This vehicle would make sense as the smaller model in a 2 mpv range, with the 3rd row only needing occasional use.
I am a massive fan of the roof however, it is the best roof design of any of the submitted vehicles
Weird name aside this is a good conservatively designed luxury mpv Overall the design seems a bit American for me though. I would rather the indicators be only built into the light units and not be on the bumpers aswell.
3rd place is the Epater, overall a very exciting and modern design. I really like the use of oval shapes in the lights and rubbing strips. The separate sections for the tail lights is certainly a differentiator compared to the other cars. It’s only negative is that in this top 3 it’s the least prestigious of the cars.
2nd place is the Stellar. Choosing between the top 2 cars was very difficult as they are both great designs in different ways. The use of circular headlights and an old fashioned grille shouldn’t really work on such a modern mpv body but somehow this looks great. I could probably do without indicators on the front bumper and beside the headlights but that’s my only complaint about the front. The lower bumper design, side skirts and visible exhausts give a sporty modern update to the styling.
1st place is the Royal Gloriana. This is every part the luxury mpv. It looks prestigious without being overly flashy or with too much chrome thrown about the place. The design would definitely appeal to the conservative buyers i am targeting
Congatulations to the winners, sorry this took me so long to get written up.
First of all, thank you Martin for hosting this round! It’s hard for me to shy away from designing vans of various shapes and sizes.
I am willing to host the next round which will not directly deal with vans, but will involve a manufacturer that makes plenty of them - Mei Ling
Yea! Top 5 for the first time in all these years of playing. That’s gotta be worth something…
Can you provide visual examples of this type of vehicle acting in emergency/fleet operations?
I don’t specifically have videos of emergency or fleet vehicles, but expect it to be scaling terrain like this:
…or as extreme as this:
…most of the time, this is the case:
Otherwise, it’ll probably be on pavement, gravel or mud
Cool. I’m just trying to come up with some clever utility-based features I can add to the design, civilian or not.
So uh. Something like this i guess.
Love this car dude!
As we near completion for this round, I am reminding the following people for certain things:
