Americans have always had strict view on bumpers, take for example the MGB, those black plastic bumpers were put on so that it could be sold in the US, the 240z, Lambo Countach, and old mercs all suffered the same punishment.

Yes it's to fit in with their safety regs. The front one isn't so bad but the back one makes the Echo hatchback look like it's got a big bottom! :lol:

They often have a little rubber step on top of it to avoid scratching the bumper when loading the boot, er, trunk. :yes:
