Is it just me or have the auto designers gotten together and compared notes regarding auto exterior design? Have you noticed that many of the major brands have incorporated similar design “cues”?

The 2018 Ford Focus, 2019 Hyundai Veloster, 2018 and 2019 Audi A6, 2018 and 2019 Audi A4, 2019 Chevrolet Cruz, and 2018/2019 Honda Accord are a few of the many models that tout this popular styling trend.
