The Audi A7, for example, is amazing because it is well designed so that the styling can have proportioning on which to work. With Toyota it seems that they create a shape for the car in 60 seconds and then turn different teams of stylists to "style" their small portion of the car. How else to describe tail lights that seem to bulge out precariously from the butt of the car and headlights one size too large?
There is no reason a Camry could not be as sublime as an A7, but the Lexus "spindle" and Crown et. al. with its Hannibal Lechter look is just careless styling without any attention to design. That said, Mercedes is as bad with its overstyled ghetto bling.
