Now this...

Some of you might remeber my rambling about überspielt car design. Toyota Land Cruiser was also one of the no-no start of the post. I did my usual car-checking today and look what hit my eyes. This is probably a clear entry for TheUgliestDumbAssDesign competition of 2009.

I am at loss of words. See?

I'd agree with you. This one's pretty bad.

I'd like to offer nearly anything I've seen made by Ssangyong as a candidate in the TheUgliestDumbAssDesign competition. We don't have Ssangyongs available to us here in the US (fortunately...)

I checked Toyota's Slovenian website. I thought this model was something like the SUV we have here in the US called the 4Runner. It doesn't appear to have any commonality with that vehicle in spite of my first impressions. Your V8 Land Cruiser is the same one we get here (although you probably can get a diesel which of course we don't...)

While trying to navigate that Slovene website (by clicking on pictures, lol...) I would also like to nominate another Toyota I saw there, the AYGO. That was pretty god-awful as well. The iQ isn't quite to my taste either, but I understand it may come to the US as a competitor for the SMART car.

Hehehehehe I nominated all Ssangyongs last year I guess. They are buttfuckingassugly. No, Land Cruiser you are seeing here, also gets a V8, so I guess they just managed to ruin one more car. That was already pretty ugly, to tell the truth. Aygo is a pretty... awkward piece, too. It's a joint venture between Toyota and PSA Group (Citroen/Peugeot) and they have their own products, Citroen C1 and Peugeot 107. Well....... :)

iQ is... different, although it looks ugly to me. Out of proportions. But apparently the little car drives like a big one. Unlike Smart.

Oh, poor, naive, little Tomaz. You haven't seen UGLY until you've seen the North American Ford Flex. It's mix of SUV and Hearse.

HA! Yeah, that thing is ugly! But it's Ford, so are we really surprised?

Eh... I think all suv's are overpriced ugly-ass gas guzzlers as it is. So this really isn't too much of an ugly surprise to me. :) Just typical.

I totally agree with you on price/gas part. But some of them don't make me scream when I see them.

This one did.

It's obviously designed for North America.

I thought so too. When I first saw this, i thought it was similar to the North American Toyota 4Runner/Lexus GX. I looked carefully between them and this version of the Land Cruiser and couldn't find any commonality...
I don't think this is a model bound for North America.

I hate all SUVs with a firey passion. If you don't own a farm and drive a landrover or jeep you have no business driving something like that.

I don't hate them. They serve no purpose, they guzzle gas and many other downsides, but some at least don't look that terribly outrageously ugly. :)

google the Nissan Cube if you want to see my vote for the TheUgliestDumbAssDesign competition of 2009...

Yes, Land Cruisers used to have some off-road flair. Now they look like.... well... shit.

Maybe they want to be exclusive. Like... nobody buys them anymore. :)

Oh goody! So I get to see these monstrosities at work in the near future. Still, it's not the most horrendous looking SUV I've ever seen, anyone remember the Pontiac Aztek?! Blecch!

So what is your job?

Aztek was.... a driving nightmare. :)
