I think people-to-car scales are okay, the people are "visibly" smaller but big enough to earn the tile they're using.  The buildings might stand to be a little bigger, just for the feels. Like an RPG "building" that's big enough to go inside, but not really to scale. ("This impressive castle has two rooms on either side of the hall, and a throne room at the end!  So huge!") We're not going inside, so they don't have to be THAT big, but a little more would help, I think.

All the car models in the asset store seem spread between the extremes of hyper-realistic or cubes with wheels. And far too few are "apocalyptic" enough. The Synty "Apocalypse" ones are probably too cube-y for what you want, and I think you can only get them in the big mega-kit.

Yeah it's a bit of a balancing act with scale, and realistic scale isn't what I want of course, but I was rather shocked when I swapped in some realistic stuff and I started to feel like the game looked...  kinda dumb.

Yeah that sweet spot of good vehicles with clean silhouettes and a low polygon count is hard to hit on the asset store.  Any objects with "cartoon" on it is usually on the minecraft side, with a few exceptions like Toon Soldiers by Polygon Blacksmith (which is going for a TF2 look).  I've seen Simple Apocalypse but never looked closely at their vehicles because they put all the lego-styled characters front-n-center.  ...the vehicles aren't bad...  I could mayyyyyybe rough them up a bit in texture to help them match my other stuff (mostly Battle Cars from Evozon and War Cars from Havolk).  Actually the vehicles in Synty's Polygon Battle Royale pack might be better (although both would mean spending a fair amount for a small percentage of usable stuff).   

I'll bookmark them and check into them once I use up my existing cars.  Thanks for the steer!

Synty's "Polygon" stuff is really nice, but doesn't have the "quantity" of vehicles I'd like to match the "quality." The "Simple" series generally has a lot more choices, especially as they've been doing that for so long. I have those same Evozon Battle Cars (all three kinds) and love how they look... I just wish there were more cars that matched that style.

On that note... This just came up:

I saw that last night and reallllly loved the parts.  The proportion of the cars are a little too Micro Machine-ish though.  However, I may pick it up anyway just for all the spike plates, tires, and mounted weapons.  Also the van and pickup aren't as stubby looking as the cars...

Yeah, it's not perfect.  And I'd like to see a few more choices in vehicles, but I like that it has the interchangeable bits. Someday, something will turn up!
