Is the dash a ski ramp?

Not sure if the Avalon has a grille or if that is just a grille with a car stuck to it. :barf: :vomit: Why does Toyota insist on going beyond over the top with their nasty grilles and styling on their sedans and crossovers? Itís like the designers said screw it, weíve got a good sale on chainlink fencing and by god weíre going to use it all. In terms of that interior, itís not ugly but itís also not pretty. There is something very odd about it, I canít put my finger on it. Maybe how the navi is so thick and sticks out in a weird way? Not sure really.

Everything in the interior looks good except for the infotainment unit. It looks like an all-in-one PC (20th anniversary Mac?) is leaning up against the dash.

The rear is very odd looking, especially when viewed from the side and there's that weird body line.




I'm sure it's got a nice ride though.

Looks like Toyota is following Lexus into the Darth Vader front grills

Youíve hit the nail on the head. Itís that the navi screen is like an old computer stuck to the dash, just way too thick and awkward looking. I wonder if it houses a CD player on the side or top and thatís why itís so damn thick?

Looks like it is feasting on krill. Fugly.

As much as I don't care for this (in the pictures because I haven't seen one in person), I admit the new Camry is ... nice. Well done Toy Yoda.

The front bumper is fugly. The headlights are nice though. And yeah... that interior is almost good... but just not quite. It's stupid the display screen isnt actually pointed towards the occupants, but rather to the ceiling. The rear makes me think Hyundai Azera, from years gone by. Just more ugly

I'm confused as to what this car is supposed to be. They put some nice sporty looking seats in, but they completely likely suck balls due to having zero bolstering whatsoever. Yet they make the exterior very sporty. With a luxury focused interior.

They didn't pull the sport luxury combination off very well. It's kind of a confused car.

Plus that black shiny plastic all over the dash... That' a magnet for fingerprints, smudges, scuffs and scratches.
