That's a good thing you turd.

It's called badge engineering.

They didn't copy the ND's angry exterior, and they didn't copy the engine, putting in that 1.4 T-Jet instead.

Everything lese is copied - but so what? It reduces research and production costs, and so it'll reduce the price of the car. Not a bad thing at all.

isnt it literally the same platform?

Pretty slack effort from fiat thought

When I was a kid, my mom had a Mercury Tracer and my neighbors had a Ford Escort. I told my mom I was going to sue Ford for stealing Mercury's design, because I was 5 and didn't understand how that shit worked.

Don't forget that the Mustang wouldn't exist (or at least, be far more expensive) if a shitload of parts weren't identical to the Falcon.
