I did my best trying to convince my wife not to choose that "Darth Vader" looking RX350. I was being such an a**hole at the dealership just because I really wanted the Acura MDX. That just made the Lexus folks make a better deal. Well, she's happy with Vader, and had no push-back when I got my SS. :grinBeauty (or lack thereof) is in the eyes of the beholder, but I'm baffled that they didn't bump it to 11 or bump one of the others off to include the Lexus RX 350.
It is obviously just me, as they are selling way more of them than all the SS's ever sold, but I truly cannot believe these things actually exist in the real world.
Lexus' grill is the ugliest thing I have ever seen. See the attached photo. Arnold Schwartenegger said it... "You are one ugly..... "
Wife hated her surprise NGM SS automatic Memorial Day 2018 gift ..but loved her Vanilla Encore present this past July 4th. Buick (with real gears) drove okay 1500-miles back to Georgia...base turbo struggled on hills with my XXL dimensions but seat comfort not bad. Car a step up from the 2004 Base Vibe and 2005 CRV SE in Athens. Wifey actually thanked me for the ugly duckling Encore (and the check for Daughter's MIT tuition)...such gratitude only occurs about every 10-years it seems. What got me worried was the boy stopped playing video games until 4 in the morning and started studying for his learner's permit online needed before driver's education registration this Fall...lolI guess this explains why my co-worker threatened to assault me if I replaced the Tahoe with one. :lol2:
Actually, I think the Nissan only gets 2nd - any Prius/Leaf/Tesla gets the "win" in that category...
To me, any vehicle that runs on electricity is like a zombie, or a "pod person" (from that old sci-fi movie) - it looks like a car, but the soul, the "vital essence" has been stripped away, leaving just a shambling husk staggering around... They're just soulless, like an appliance, like your refrigerator, or toaster.Why Tesla? Granted the Model 3 has a weird front, and the tapered greenhouse in 3/4 rear view is also a bit weird, but the side view is fine, and the Model S is gorgeous (IMO of course). At least they are not overdone with stupid clutter. I'm not into EV's, but that doesn't mean they can't be pretty.
To me the RX and former Juke are the worst. In general I find recent Nissan styling really tacky, such a far cry from the late 80's-early 90's when they were a design leader.
To me, that model 3 reminds me of that chick on Twilight Zone - The Movie, where her mouth was moulded shut, or taken away, for sayin' sumpthin' that she shouldn't have...I mean, the Model 3 has a place for a grille, but just doesn't have one,...not even a fake one!To me, any vehicle that runs on electricity is like a zombie, or a "pod person" (from that old sci-fi movie) - it looks like a car, but the soul, the "vital essence" has been stripped away, leaving just a shambling husk staggering around...
