I'll wait to see it in the metal before I make my mind up, but I not that keen on the two tone paint, just doesn't look right, on the 2nd ypsilon Lancia did a few special two tones that really suited the car.
I like the twin air engine and 84bhp out of 2 cylinders is pretty good going even if it's achieved with technical wizardry, but the fuel consumption sounds abysmal if you use the performance.
As for the grille I'm 100% in agreement, I just don't like it, it's gone from something quite elegant to a grimace.
But that's only my opinion. Roll Eyes

Does anyone else get annoyed by cars with no rear door handles?  There's a road with an Alfa like that near here and I sometimes go a different route to save the blood pressure.

Nope, my Y elefantino Rosso had them & I quite liked them, but I'd much rather see door handles like those on the Fiat Barchetta, very stylish and  understated.

Those Barchetta handles are lovely - very similar to those on Tim Burret's B20 (I forget the coachbuilder) and a number of 50s/60s Abarths.  I think it was John Turner who told me how strange it was to take apart a paper thin unbraced Abarth door and find a kilo of cast bronze for the handle assembly.

verticle slats or horizontal slars, on the new Delta The horizontal slats look better. Thats my opinion, I think the verticle slats make the front end look to tall where as the horizontal slats help to widen out the look of the front, ok I know this is a Chrysler design but I think it looks quite well  Smiley
