Can you honestly say it's uglier than this: https://scontent.xx.fbcdn.net/hphoto...2f&oe=5630E2A6 (Nissan Juke). this http://www.fiatusa.com/assets/images...rt-184x130.png (Fiat 500), this https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikiped...t_20100508.jpg (Mini Clubman), or this https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikiped...8_Scion_xB.jpg (Scion xB), to name just a few off the top of my head.
How does comparing it to other ugly cars make it not ugly? Not that I agree all the cars you compare it to are ugly, but drawing the comparison doesn't suddenly make it prettier. Of the four listed above, I would say the Juke is worst, and I can honestly say the Juke is far less ugly.

IMO, this creation is a visual assault to the eyes. It looks like several different cars grafted together because it IS several different cars grafted together. Sometimes this can be done to improve the overall look of the car, in this case, it's an absolute failure.

Not just the grille, the back end looks pretty ugly too, at least from the angle of that shot.

First, it is NOT all that ugly, but IMHO rather above average for recent model cars, most of which seem to be consciously seeking ugliness. The comparison is to show that there are indeed far uglier cars out there. If you think otherwise, that's just your (bad) taste :-)
