Real cars for real people?

Audi and to a lesser extent VW have very conservative/classy looks I admire.

Chevrolets of the last few years are very sharp, not quite sure how well they will age.

KIA has looks down pat, unusual for Asian makes who seem to have struggled with appearance for years. Ironically KIA also spanks kissing cousin Hyundai in looks IMO. I read KIA has a former Audi designer at the helm these days, well it shows.

I can only really answer "not as many brands".

Seems all brands lately want aggressive styling and frequent redesigns, which tends to make the vehicle age much quicker. I remember becoming close to driving age in the early 2000s, and looking forward to new vehicle designs. Some I didn't like, but most were quite sharp. Now it seems to be the opposite, new refreshes make me go "wow that's ugly, I like the previous generation better".

I'm so not a blue oval fan...

But Ford Oz seems (IMO) to have the styling thing together at the moment, with consistency across the range.

The Rangers in their upmarket spec are really well done.

The last good looking car was in the '70's...haven't seen anything I like since. So, so ugly these days.

The question is so subjective that I'm not interested in my own answer. The criteria of "the last five years" might change things if I'm looking at individual models versus their entire range or vice versa.

I'd agree with the idea that the generic incestuousness of a lot of recent designs may generate something that looks nice...but many vehicles increasingly look like everything else.

For the last five years it would be Chevrolet-GMC. The Impala,Traverse.Acadia,Tahoe,Yukon and Suburban are the best looking vehicles on the road. The Ford Fusion is very nice also.

All that just IMHO. To each their own.

And a 1975 AMC Pacer is a close second.

I'd agree. Jaguar certainly makes some classy looking cars.


EDIT: One thing to note, the attractiveness of a car is a dynamic thing. A good example might be the BMW i3, which looks somewhat OK in pictures, but absolutely ridiculous going down the road.

The Jaguar F-Type R convertible in action is a sight to behold. The XF sedan looks not unlike a Camry in pictures, but is absolutely good looking in person and in action. The XE sedan is a smaller car, but still manages to look really good in person.
