I don't think it's that unattractive. I actually like the fender skirt thing, and if you showed me a silhouette of it, I think I'd like it that way too. There's some individual things like the fussy details everyone's throwing at cars these days and those stupid led headlights I could do without, but I'd have to say I like this more than the average car.

Ugliest award IMHO goes either to the Scion box thing (whatever model that was) or the Nissan Cube. Really any of those toastermobiles are so hideous that I instantly start thinking about committing arson whenever I see one.

I do agree with what was said earlier, though, regarding eco-cars seemingly having to look odd. The Prius has always been a fine example of this.
