      I remember a very favorable teaser pic. Shame it turned out so ugly.

      The shield front end (and what's below it) kill it for me.

      Honda could maybe pull that off. Not sure if Acura pricing can!

      I hope the area underneth the lip spoiler is glass.

    14. 07-20-2009 03:13 PM #15
      Those Acura designers have outdone themselves with this one. Or maybe that should be "undone" themselves.

      Wow, that is ugly.

      It's not as ugly as I remember it but it's no beauty either. The shield looks better on SUVs.

      I would have never thought that the X6 would have competition for the ugliest suv,crossover, thingy.
      Congrats Acura

      The multiple panel cut lines at the C/D/E???? pillar(s) are pretty busy looking. It might look better in a dark color. Overall, I don't understand the class of vehicle represented by the X6 and ZDX, but maybe it just is not meant for me.

      The grill still messes it up. The rest of it(profile and back) looks fine/good.

      That was the first time I've actually LAUGHED seeing a new model. This thing is hideous! beats the X6 without a doubt!

      On a side note. I've been having fun lately counting the number of buttons in the interiors of Honda/Acura vehicles. On a quick count, there's more than 55 on the steering wheel+dash.

      WTF does ZDX mean anyway? It's like Acura just comes up with a random 3 letters when naming their vehicles.

      When the Acura shield is the least offensive part of the car, you know things are bad.

      I guess car designers have finally realized rear seat passengers are headless.

      I think folks will look back at the later part of this decade 2006-10 and just shake their heads at all the BS spewed out from the automakers.
      Where are we going and why am I in this handbasket?

      it's like an X6 but even uglier

      They should have just given it a regular rear door handle. On the plus side, Acura finally has a 6 speed auto.

      This.

      We are FAR from the normal buyer group. If anyone can make a... uhhh... unique-looking vehicle sell well it's BMW & Honda.

      Seriously, though. People here bitch about not enough HBs and when they come, we bitch some more. For me... if these HB variants take off, that just means MORE variants of HBs will come. Does TCL NOT recognize that simple fact?

      BTW... I hardly ever make negative comments, but damn that is funky... and not the good funky. When Acura came out with the last gen TL styling, I thought Cadillac's A&S chiseled theme would have a good long term challenger for that kind of styling. I was wrong.

      How could they go from the last gen TL, and current MDX (which I think is a very handsome SUV, would be my first choice in the luxo SUV market) to these abominations.

      How is the current TL selling? Surely they must see it's not doing well... I can't drive without seeing 5-6 last Gen TL's every trip and have only seen 2 of the new ones in the flesh since they were released... Point being you would think they would realize the styling likely isn't being embraced and steer the ship.

      Oh well... again for good measure.
