Much more feminine body lines compared to the old one. Given the interior needed a ton of updates, I think the Cayenne could have looked more aggressive than it turned out. I'm thinking the new X5 may suffer the same and look too much like an X3.
Just a hunch. I like the current look a lot in 50i or Sport trim with 20s.
My thoughts exactly - that's why we pulled the trigger now and got a '13. The '14 is sounding like it might be softer looking like the X3.
