Great for Aerocivic!

But I disagree with what seems to be the concensus answer about the new Prius being ugly: "...because of aerodynamics..."

The 2016 Prius is ugly because of styling, which is different from its aerodynamic design.

It's the hideous window dressing (front & rear ends) that turns me off the new Prius, not the form factor.
