    I couldn't have said it better myself. A common theme among Japanese cars is lines, creases, and material changes all over the exterior of the car as well as absolutely funky (not in a good way) headlights and tail lights.

    This car is simplistic, clean, and downright awesome!

        The grille on a Lexus reminds me of this:

              Honda had "simple" working for them not too long ago. For example, the 2005-2011 Honda Civic. Simple. Clean. Aerodynamic. I thought it was the best-looking economy car.

              The follow-on (2011-2016) was a little busier, but still not too bad.
              But then for 2017, they went crazy.

              Seriously, what is with all the black plastic crap they decided to stick all over the exterior? I'd have nightmares thinking about trying to wax that thing. I guess they felt the need to change things up.

                Elon is extremely focused on manufacturing right now. He's been beating that drum for over a year. And we've already heard that first cars are RWD, large-battery, non-performance. I'm sure that's what he has.

                  Totally agree I have a 2008 civic and the only feature besides the body lines is the little spoiler. I do a double take when I see the new ones. Love the clean classy lines of the Model 3. It looks sexy and sporty because it is actually sleek and aerodynamic. Class but no frills.

                      I have been seriously worried about the sanity of Honda designers for quite a few years... most recently demonstrated impactfully with Clarity recently! :D
                      And another case in point: 2018 Honda Odyssey... :eek:

                        Very similar to Nissan. What is up with the 2017 Maxima? What's up with the front? What about that black plastic running the side to the back?

                          so 10 years from now, you will be able to easily identify a 2015-201? era car by the useless over stylized 'accents'

                            Isn't there a "dreadful" rating for this car design? Maybe this? :tmi: Or this? :dizzy: Or even this? :confounded:
