And, yes, it is indeed hideous. It's so hideous that it makes the Prius look mild.

I've seen a Clarity, but only at night. I thought that it had fewer cutlines than does the Civic, which makes it a relative sucess in my book.

We'll have to agree to disagree. ;) For me, I think part of it is that there used to be a lightness and a certain honest elegance to Honda's designs, and that, IMO, is no longer the case. I've actually never been a huge fan of Honda designs, but the the 2nd gen Legend coupe is an utterly fantastic looking car. The 1st gen coupe was too shabby, either. I also think that I personally use bad exterior design to symbolize the possible downturn in mechanical quality/reliability and the confusing ergonomics (from what I've read; I haven't used a recent Honda product).

And Acura, IMHO, still can't design a decent-looking grille to save it's life.

Toyota, OTOH, has always been, and continues to be, about building cars w/ bullet-proof reliability. For a brief period of time (early 90s), the sophistication of the cars and build quality were off the charts. That has passed (but might be returning somewhat), but at least the cars still regularly top reliability surveys.

I find Nissan's designs to be horrid in pictures, but, for whatever reason, I actually sort of like them in person. There's also a certain conceptual purity to their unconventional designs.

I still find most Toyota designs to be the most horrid of all, but upcoming Camry looks pretty decent, and this Fun concept is promising.

Feels like a citroen. Not a bad thing in my opinion. I kind of like it.

Not fond of the slit-like headlamps, but I actually like it. There's a bit of XC60 in the D-pillar (if you can look past the floating roof) and, IMHO, a quirky appeal to the overall design.
