I think there's a mistake because the rear shot is a Hyundai Sonata.

That is hideous. Why do all new cars look alike and keep getting uglier and uglier? I'm all for modern design and such, but "cmon man!"

This is definitely an ugly design for Lexus but I wouldn't say that they have no good looking vehicles... the LFA, IS-F, GX 460 and LX570 all look great!

But the GX and LX look terrible.

LFA is kinda a product of wind tunnels. Definitely not a beautiful flowing car.
Looks are very subjective but I will say this... in my opinion the Is-F looks just fine outside of the horrible exhaust pipes, the LFA is boss and looks very original, way better than BMW's supercar; the I8, i mean WTF is that lol? The Gx and Lx are truck based chassis and are essentially the only SUV's of it's kind, they can actually go off-road and perform pretty decently unlike any BMW suv which is essentially made to be driven on offroads as rough as grass

I'm glad I'm not alone in thinking this is ugly. It makes me mad because this used to be their best looking car.

+1 on the LFA being ugly. Performs great and sounds awesome but very, very ugly.

I read peoples comments on how the 911 looks the same year after year blah blah blah.

This car shows what can happen when designers fiddle F around too much and end up with a hideous mess.

Lexus has their clients and it will sell though. To each their own but I will stick with flowing lines and not a tangent orgy.
