Yeah, sans the front end it's pretty decent actually.

I find the new IS to be awful and the RC is one of the ugliest vehicles I've ever seen, but this somehow works. I don't even mind the grille. Maybe it's just that crossovers have taller proportions, so the random lines don't seem so squished together.

It's the Joan Rivers of SUVs. Plastic Surgery gone wrong...so tortured looking.

There is quite a bit different between the two. This is definitely not a simple rebadge. Different powertrain, suspension tuning, styling in and out, and likely better materials being used, as well.

Not me buddy. I'd spend an extra $10k and get the Lex.

This thing has really grown on me, particularly the hybrid's front-end. Might consider it the next time I'm in the market.

Ok - so not as ugly as the concept (which looked like an 80's Cylon had a bastard child w/ an RX350) - but it's not great. Personal opinion obviously...I know it's a different class of car, but I think the new Murano blows this away...and I friggin hate Nissans!!
