I feel like some of the pics make the car look like it's sitting really low and others make it look light it sits up decently high. Any estimates on ground clearance? Some website I've seen estimate about 6".

First impression is it looks like an overinflated model3. Very underwhelming. And those wheels look terrible ...I think it's the way the car is sitting high on them.

Could be the black on black color....

I am not sure it’s going to have that much more practical storage unless you put the seats down.

I am so torn as to when yet or not I want to wait.

It's hard to tell until the final specs come out. If it's 6" longer (or so) as many are speculating, that'll be a lot more storage when combined with the hatch.

Much like the 3, from certain angles it looks great but from others, meh. I was really hoping it would have more of a fastback shape ala the BMW x4/6 or maybe the Benz GLE/GLC coupe. Something about the short front is throwing me off, maybe it's just the color (sorry black preorder people!).

I like the look overall, happy to see the chrome is blacked out, but not a huge fan of those wheels. I like the dark alloy rims that have been in some of the renders (but unfortunately not on the configurator)

I think it looks great from some angles, and others not as much. I'm also thinking about changing our wheel config...but I really don't like the idea of taking an efficiency hit purely for aesthetic considerations.

Well, the 7-seat configuration won't be out until at least 2021...so I've got a bit of time yet.

Hopefully early 21+ SR
