    What the heck Lexus?

    Now this is a seriously bad design direction. I 'm pretty sure it's one of the worse design I've seen from a "respectable" car manufacturer in a long time.

    Re: What the heck Lexus?

    I think I've seen better, but honestly, I don't mind it that much. 

    That said, SUV == Meh design. The only SUV I've ever seen that wasn't meh, whatever, it's an SUV, who cares, is a G-class.

    They're like a relatively good looking bug. Sure, compared to other bugs they could be good looking, but it's still a gross insect at the end of the day and will never be a super model human being.

    People who are not keen drivers that's for sure but Lexus build quality, reliability and dealer service is better than almost any other. We've a friend who would have nothing else - but we also have another good friend who not only drives Volvo's  - he's just bought his third XC 90 - but is a caravanner as well.... Smiley

    Re: What the heck Lexus?

    It's quite a clever strategy to display a really ugly show car like that one.  

    When the real production car is introduced later, everyone will be so relieved that it doesn't look like the show car that there will be no criticism of its looks.  Smiley

    If someone views his car in the same way as his refrigerator, I suppose Lexus might be alright yes

    In the last few years I feel volvo was gone in the right direction. Sure they aren't very sporty, fast, or great performers, but they embraced the fact that people buy their products because or security, reliability, and subtle styling. And their current design language shows that, that said current volvos don't look bad at all. Lexus on the other hand wants to appeal to a clientele that wasn't buying their product before. This is an example of a brand trying to be something they're not. 


    Re: What the heck Lexus?

    To be honest I have no idea what the target group of Lexus is. They are not sporty, not flashy, not pretty. In some ways they are a luxury utilitarian brand. So basically maybe an older crowd who wants something nice but don't care about what is under the hood.

    looks like the product of  two stoned  Acura and Infiniti SUV designers

     

     


    Re: What the heck Lexus?

    What about the LFA?  My wife's CT hybrid looks good too. I'm typically not a Lexus guy but they have some decent models. How about the IS-F?

    LFA and IS-F are both pretty sporty no? What about Futch's Lexus?

    That being said this concept SUV is in fact quite hideous Smiley

    Not everyone are car nuts like you or me and to them indeed a car is simply white goods on wheels. For someone who wants comfortable, effortless and utterly reliable transport, to whom a car is purely a means to get from A to B, then cars like Lexus or Toyota fit the bill well. The weird styling is, I guess, Lexus attempts to be individual. They've certainly succeeded, even if not to many people's taste.

    It's as though they looked at the LFA and thought "man, that's a good looking car. You know what would be even better? An SUV version!"

    Needs more angles and highlights..
