Chevy Impala with a dab of Ford Fusion. I saw a new 4 door sedan today that I couldn’t recognize. From the side I thought it could be a bmw, but from the back thanbadges were different. I’m going to have to surf around to see if I can figure what the heck that car was.When I look at that Honda I see a Chev Impala........
Mazda should sue Tesla over the use of the 3 name. Alas BMW also has a 3 series. Then there's Intel and BMW, both with i3. I think the Mazda 6 would be a better example as the Mazda 3 is too small to be compared with a Tesla Model S. Sadly the Mazda Millenia and 929 are no longer - my mom had a Millenia, her daily driver after the Cadillac Seville with the crazy rear trunk.I see it in the Mazda 3 also.
The fastback style has been a growing trend for well over a decade, IMO. And its aero advantages help with MPG or range, so that may be one factor in its popularity.

yet mercedes has the E-class.
Don't go getting yourself a hater label now!”Well, we have the S and the X. We might as well make it the E,” he told the friend. “Then it kind of stuck — even though we were just kidding.”
