    Has the roof line of a BMW X6; they both do have "X" in their name.

    Looks like the aerodynamics might be good for a SUV...

    Sort of reminds me of the infiniti fx with a shorter hood:

    Maybe it's one of those plastic models they gave us at the Fremont tour...

    That is definitely not the line of an S. I'm not so sure if I approve just yet. I'll have to see the whole thing. (edited because, well, perish the thought.)

    No the hood seems "bulbier" and the roof line seems longer. The nose seems a bit.... Lame? But I think it looks a bit weak in the S too. Can't wait to see the whole thing.

    Given the talk about the "falcon doors" I was expecting a flat roof. Almost looks like it flows to a point, which isn't likely since 3rd row passengers would have little head room and storage space would be impacted.

    I've increased the brightness to see if the supplied image will reveal a bit more, and you can see the outline of the driving seat headrest and a few more outline details.

    I'm looking forward to the X more than the S, but I hope to God its not a BMW X6 clone .....

    It's a lot clearer in the picture posted earlier in the thread:

    I'd honestly never really taken a hard look @ the X6 (not being a BMW fan), but it would explain the long sloped roof a bit:

    Theres an X6 that parks near my office, and its a friking huge lump compared to most of the cars around it. I personally think its all out of proportion and somewhat ugly, but no doubt there are thousands of happy buyers.

    Hoping the back doesn't slope that much ... I hate the sloping roof trend I'm seeing on more SUVs. I want an SUV for the space. The Range Rover Evoque is atrocious. Don't these people have dogs??
