3. Small is beautiful

Taking twin cues from the tech world (where tiny = sexy) and Europe (where tiny = fuel efficient), automakers are showing smaller vehicles in Detroit. As a small car fan myself, that's really exciting to see. Even bigass-is-badass GMC is trying to muscle in on the compact crossover market (which I call the Facebook Citybox market) with the GMC Granite concept, cousin of the 2011 Orlando. Sure, it stretches the definition of "beautiful", but the even-smaller 2011 Ford Focus, the Fiat 500 Abarth, and the new iteration of the Audi e-tron more than compensate.
