New face far more appealing than the 2010-2013 smile.

This angle is the car's best. Xenon headlamps are standard with the larger engine.

Clean and fluid. The s's 18-inch wheels help disguise the lengthy front overhang.

Long nose, bobbed tail. Are these proportions attractive, intriguing, or odd?
