Conclusion

So, Oldsmobile made this concept that looked like a wagon and acted like a wagon while they vehemently denied it was a wagon. It goes to show the influence imposed by market perception because, as a wagon, the Expression set some nice goals. While the whole sport sedan thing comes across rather gimmicky, like something cooked up by marketers. Similar, I suppose, to the enigma that are today’s four-door coupe CUVs.

With that said, I’ll repeat how gorgeous I think the Expression is. Its lines are still cohesive and pleasing to the eye.
