2018 Acura TLX

This is actually pretty sad. The TLX isn't a super exiting car.
But it has been getting really good reviews.
In general, Acuras are really good cars.

And that ugly "Shield" grille had finally been toned down so much, it actually almost looked fine.
(Especially in the revised version of the  smaller ILX)
To the point that I thought it was pretty OK in the TLX.

But it looks like it will soon be getting the "even uglier" new grille design from the 2017 MDX.
And you can pretty much bet the ghastly new design will be crafted on all other Acura models.

(Just like that new horrific grille from the Lincoln Continental. Which is now ruining the MKZ design.)

Of course, design is a matter of taste. But I really think this old fashion, plasticky
 big grille (now useless) design has to go. It does not imply luxury anymore.
It just looks tacky and cheap.

It seems that Acura  has really lost it as far as design goes. They seem completely lost.
They are now mixing boring and ugly.
Which never, ever works...

One phone call to a good designer could fix most of that mess. Really.
They need to put their ego aside and realize they just can't do it and call for help.

2017 Lexus IS

 Well, they did make it crazier looking. Or worse. Even more vulgar than before.
Upfront, everything seems to be bigger, except the headlights.
Bigger grille, bigger vents. More holes.
Just more stuff!

Which doesn't really match the rest of the car, especially the profile.

It seems that things are getting crazy at Lexus.
Not sure who they are trying to sell these to.

It's like old people idea of what young people might like.

 Inside, things look the same to me.
But I am not the world's best "Lexus IS Expert". So...
Here is the current model.
Which now looks pretty tame and gentle next to the 2017 beast.
It almost looks soft...
