My 2014 RAV4 Limited is so ugly in the front that I call it
snaggle-tooth.

But what's one to do, they all car mfgs have been either copying each
others blu-prints or sitting around the same campfire smoking weed and
sharing ideas.

OK, let me put this way: All the cars look the same and then came the Juke.

Wait, I knew there was an animal out there with the looks of the Juke: the frog.

I'm sure Nissan wants you to think it's predator but it's not so.

It's still ugly. The topic is looks, not performance. Five bucks says you
have morphed the discussion to bicycles somewhere in the thread.

F---ing idiot.

But designing something to look u-g-l-y is not a good marketing
strategy. Nissan tried a similar design with the Micra and then went
back to a more normal looking car for the newer model. A few of
Nissan's current range are ugly: Juke, 370Z, GTR, Qashqai, Leaf.
