What’s Next: Future Design Trends

WILD HATCHES: Some recent concepts, including the Maserati Birdcage 75th and the BMW Mille Miglia, have showcased the canopy hatch as a means of entry. While not really feasible-or practical-we think it’s pretty cool.

ELONGATED HEADLAMPS: Headlamp clusters will continue to stretch like Armstrong along the fender peak.

SCISSOR DOORS: Long a staple of concept cars and, more recently, the aftermarket scene, scissor doors could become standard-as long as they’re cost effective, of course.

LED HEADLAMPS: You’ve seen them in taillamps, but LED lighting will soon light the way forward, too.

FENDER GRILLES: Functional or not, fender adornment will continue to gain popularity.
