theres always the option of the IDx twins which will be going into production sometime within the next 2 or 3 yearsI agree with much of what you said. Looking around even the new Mazda 2 is adapting a more aggressive look based on the 3/6. The new Yaris will be even looking more aggressive.
It's hard to believe the company that gives us the 370Z, GT-R, Maxima the various concept like you mentioned the Sport Sedan, and the funky Juke would be so plain for it's smallest model.
Lets hope the next gen car is more stylish, I would buy a small car that had boomerang headlights and swoopy lines.
