Default Vehicles you Have Seen That Make you say to Yourserlf "What Were They Thinking"

I have seen three new design Honda Ridgelines' and I laughed each time. I was wondering why they didn't make it look more tough and less like the Honda Pilot with the back roof sheared off using a chainsaw.

Oh there's plenty of these designs;

Starting with every Ssang Yong, every time, some Mitsubishis and some in general.

But even more so I tend to think that, when generally good or at least ok cars are ruined by details, which sometimes are cheap, sometimes just weird. YOu just end up thinking " really, for 1,a 20$ saving they ruin a car?

My brother also says the new Prius is a disaster. Don't even ask if it can get any worse.

Wasn't the SsangYong Actyon ahead of its time though , Coupe SUV

Coupe SUV's are all rubbish although Lamborghini Urus and some MB / BMW Coupe SUV are starting to work.

It was ahead of it's time, but that doesn't make the Actyon (or whatever that was called) or any other of those fast back SUVs any prettier. The Urus in flesh really just looks very VAG corporate design with a weird nose on it, hardly worth of a Lamborghini badge, but yeah, that#s what the market asks for....

Yes, the SUV craze is hitting everyone for better or worse I do not know.

Agreed on the Prius, and adding the new Supra to the list, which has great proportions marred by very bad overstyling.

As long as those monstrosities are generating enough profit for delicious, delicious super cars to be built, I think I'm alright with that.

Very true I forgot Cayenne saved Porsche, Bentayga though isn't doing the same for Bentley.

I feel the segment bentley is in and the people buying it's car is not an suv segment, but I could be mistaken. If the RR suv sells better maybe bentley just screwed up but if you ask me, the RR suv is not looker either and the bentley looks slightly better.
