    Gotta be honest the lights look really strange and out of place, they're flat, bland, don't follow the shape of the light frames and they don't look like they're from 2007 comparing it to the cars you based it on.

    The name "supaku" isn't very good, it's extremely rare for a Japanese company to give a car a Japanese name; they almost always use English (or sometimes French/German etc).
    Secondly, if you pronounce it in your head, you'll probably notice "supaku" is katakana, meaning it's a written version how Japanese people would just say the english word "spark", so it's not a particularly cool or fancy sounding name either.

    one other thing, if you're trying to make something the size of a camry/maxima/legacy/etc. the overall height of the car will actually stay the same as the sunburst, but it should gain a bit of extra width.

    for the added cool factor, you could also redo the drivetrain to use the SBR's flat-4 engines, and even add a flat-6 like the subaru EZ.

    Speaking about names, Mitsuoka written as 光岡 names nearly everything they sell Sunriselandish (what i call Japanese) names. リューギ(流儀), ビュート(美遊人), ヒミコ(卑弥呼), レイ(麗), リョーガ (凌駕), ユーガ(優雅), オロチ(大蛇), ガリュー(我流), ライク(雷駆). These be read as: Ryugi, Byūto (short for biyuhito, sold as Viewt), Himiko, Rei (sold as Ray), Ryōga, Yūga (Sold as Yuga), Orochi, Garyū (sold as Galue), Raiku (sold as Like). Suzuki has Kizashi (兆), and Kei (軽). Daihatsu has 上行く (read as Ueiku, sold as Wake). Nissan has パオ (包) read as Pao. Toyota has ミライ (未来) read as Mirai.

    yes, instances do exist, hence why I said "extremely rare".
    but even then, (excluding mitsuoka which is on a glorious drug trip), all of these names still sound cool when you have the meaning in japanese; "Mirai" is "future", "Kizashi" is something like "prophecy", even "Ueiku" is "go up" a bit weirder, but still a fun, attractive name.

    Even staying with words similar to "spark" on google translate gives "hibana" and "kirameki".
    You might be able to give further insight as to whether they actually work as names, but they're better than nothing.

    I do know that the name "Supaku" isn't a really good name, i have run out of ideas and i don't know how to call the car to sound more interesting, like i did with Petitron, which some people liked the naming, at least that's how people say it to me.

    I can change the name of the car, but for that i need to really think how should i call it, luckily Japanese people i have contact with may help me with this a little bit. But for this moment i'll keep the Supaku name.

    and also for the naming i used DeepL translator. Google translate can do some wrong translation.

    Sunlight sounds really nice, it's like the more friendly name compare to Sunburst, which sounds sporty.
