Rant: Ugly Car, Picture Doesn't Matter

Two ugly car posts in a row!  Who wudda thunk?!?

MotorWeek: "The 2015 Nissan Murano is all about style."  ...Um... no.  The Gen 1 Murano struck me as distinctive and stylish, if big, for a crossover SUV.  Gen 2, not so much. 

This Gen 3 Murano reminds me of the wretched excess of Detroit-styled cars in the late 1950's.  The fault, dear Nissan, lies not with you: give the customer what he wants.  No doubt market research tells Nissan that this is where the Murano should be headed.  And it weighs over 2 tons while seating only 4, with no pretense to performance.  Epic fail.
