Car design, and in particular the exterior design, is something we encounter as soon as we leave the house. But not everything we are confronted with on a daily basis becomes a matter of subjective apprehension. Vehicles, however, are a very personal matter for their users: their exterior design represents the user to the outside world and for both driver and passengers, the interior with its active and passive man-machine interfaces is an important space where much time is spent. Apart from a few individual exceptions, we do indeed spend more time in a car than simply looking at one. Still, together with the brand image, the exterior design plays the more crucial role in relation to recognition value.
