    Lexus IS (XE30) 2013-

    I'm sure somewhere in the Lexus Media site there's a press release for this #1

    Don't like the grille or the rocker panel sculpting. Looks far too boy racer-ish for an entry-level luxury car, even one marketed on the sporty end. Yeah, I really just don't like it.

    Yeah, it got hit with the ugly stick pretty hard. Hey look, Acura made a company grill, let's make one too!

    I miss the IS when it was a straight 6.

    Well, I'll at least say something nice. Looking straight on at the tail, that looks pretty decent. And I do like the industrial facility they took some of those shots in...I think it's a bit cliche, but most of my favourite car photography is in or around some gritty industrial structures.

    Indeed. That was a proper sports saloon. And the chief engineer was the same man as was on the AE86.

    Computerising some parameters to make car fun, isn't.

    I also just saw this. The front end is a huge mess.

    The front fascia is less of a disaster than the sculpted rocker panels, IMHO. It looks like something off of some kid's Honda Civic.
