Spotted yesterday - new Prius ZR (or RZ) in Greenlane Toyota - the ugliest Toyota ever IMO

 

It was after hours - looked throught he closed doors inside - "toilet style" white plastic inserts :-(

 

The "stick" looked as if someone has forgotten their screwdriver in the dashboard :-(

 

Ugly sharp corners of exterior design :-(

 

The car was not looking appealing for a ride :-(

 

It did have license plate on it and was for sale.

 

Tastes differ, anyone found it looking cool?

Same model car could look very different in different colors - this new 2016 Prius is not that bad in Red (it may look even futuristic and some will find it cool). But in Silver Metallic - it is like some DIY-er was going throught the wreck yard, found bits from different cars and welded them together...

You don't buy a Toyota for its looks, you buy it because it's cheap and reliable.

 

But this takes that to the extreme!

It's a prius, they are supposed to be ugly I thought so that everyone knew you valued fuel savings over appearance?
