It has been a while since the new IS announced, but I still can't make connection with the front of the car, specially that huge grille.

It is not beautiful in the norms. But that's the point, it is OUT of the norms. I appriciate Lexus for their bravery and I love this.

I can't say that it's ugly, but there is nothing that make me love this car. I can see extraordinary precision of work.

I have seen it in nature. Still ugly for me... I think this is about extreme taste - UGLY or BEAUTIFUL. Can't go halfway between these two.

It's been almost a month, and constantly looking at the pictures, I still can't find the ugliness everyone is talking about. It's no Beauty, far from it, But I find it has character and it stands out. The Interior is still exceptionally awesome.

It looks like the outgoing IS but with a hideous front and back. Although probably not so bad in black. It only looks good next to the uglier new Infiniti Q50.
