it's starting to sound a little derisive since the implication is clearly being cast that the Chinese have what the rest of us would consider terrible taste.

Thanks for this. I might point out that these articles are not evidence that Chinese want bigger grills, but quotes from auto designers justifying what they are doing. But the articles are helpful in proving the assertion that they are pandering to Chinese consumers who "want something more ostentatious".-

I just wish they found a way to visually communicate status that didn't look so fucking stupid
