"Not all snowflakes are the same, but yours is too close to another."
2016 was slightly better than 2015, as this year we did see only seven (7) CopyCat Awards handed out. With only two (2) direct copies of products hitting our roads this year, it seems the world is getting better at automotive design. We did have a few designs which borrowed key aspects, but really only two (2) this year, really made us think, why?
For 2016 we are glad to see a reduction in the number for copycats on the road and we hope this will be a sign of better things to come.
2016 Alfa Romeo Giulia (copy of a 2014 BMW M5)
may not look like the M5, it still carries the same outline profile and overall appeal that BMW carries on all of their products. Guess you can say, that this new Alfa is just a BMW made in Italy.
2016 BAIC BJ80C (copy of a 2010 Mercedes-Benz G-Class)
BAIC wanted to borrow their design. But they could have done it similar to that of their Wrangler counterpart (the BJ40) and given it a whole new front end. Since this was not done, they now have earned themselves a spot at the CopyCat table.
2016 Chevrolet Cruze (copy of a 2012 Honda Civic)
makings, you can really see how Chevrolet used the Civic's profile. Guess after a long stint of making their own model, they decided to even the playing field and confuse consumers into their showrooms.
