    The Nissan Terra being released in Asia

    Looks from the concept like a combination of previous Gen Pathfinder and Xterra (of coruse much more modern looking.
    But ladder frame, lockable diffs etc etc.

    Is that coming to the U. S. market? It's quite a styling departure from the recent design language seen on the Murano, Rogue and Maxima. It's very conservative.

    In its general outline and concept to me that vehicle looks a lot to what we might have gotten if the R51 (05-12) Pathfinder had been replaced with a true successor a body-on-frame truckish SUV

    Out of date the day it is released, styling wise. That seems to be the trend for Nissan. They are fantastic with forward thinking concepts, but then it goes through the finance department and we get out of date vehicles. Oh well.

    Looks like s%!t like all current Nissan vehicles. not surprised. when will Nissan learn that styling is top priority. the freaking new RAV4 looks better than this thing. same with the Sh!%ty kicks vs CHR. it's so sad to see this happening.

    Well, yes and no. The Maxima is quite attractive to many and is aging well (I still perk up when I see one on the road, especially from the rear at night). I think the Rogue looks excellent. This is Infiniti, not Nissan, but still corporate so I will say that the QX50, Q50 and Q60 look fantastic and class competitive (yes, the former has an awful transmission). The 2019 Altima (6th gen) looks fantastic, and is probably the sweetest-looking Nissan sedan to date. It throws in just enough German restraint with all the ultra-modern creased anime-inspired Japanese overload to balance the style well. I can only hope that this is the way Nissan will approach its styling going forward. That's how you avoid committing atrocities like the new Avalon's grill (it otherwise is a great car).

    It's obvious the Terra is designed for a different demographic/region of the world. I still don't understand why we have not seen the new Frontier yet, but they said that they feel the Navara is not up to the task of the US market when it come to trucks. I think this is the case with the Terra as well.

    I think Nissan/Infiniti is doing great in the styling department with their latest designs, honestly. I agree the Altima is pretty damn hot for what it is. The Rogue, Maxima and Murano are aging pretty damn good and the latter two have yet to be refreshed(we literally should be seeing their refreshes debut in a matter of days to weeks, I hope). The Qashqai(Rogue Sport) was always the better looking of the two siblings and we now have both of those as an option now. I also think the KICKS is a pretty solid design. Its not overtly out there like the CH-R or Kona, but it's not completely bland like the HR-V. I think it strikes a good balance. My mom said she wanted one when the commercial came on and she's totally in love with the Kia Soul, so I think it falls in that space of appeal. And the reviews of it have been surprisingly good. Like I am actually shocked that they have been consistently good across the media. Lol

    On the Infiniti side, design wise they have been knocking out of the park I think. The QX50 looks GOOD on the road. It definitely has some presence. Could see it holding it's own parked next to some X5s and GLEs. The Q50 and Q60 have always been lookers, even though the media pans them for everything else. Their good looks can't be denied, especially since the Q50 was refreshed.

    I am also taking note of Nissan and Infiniti's interiors lately. The QX50 being the prime example of them REALLY taking things to a new level. The Maxima and Murano have really nice interiors, and the New Altima seems to be pretty nice as well.

    So yea... I don't personally see a problem in the design department. I think they're doing fine there.
    My Opin.

    UGH! How was that even approved... it doesn't look completely horrible in person, but still. WHAT WERE THEY THINKING!??!

    It was funny... last night my friend simply said "that's ugly" when a Lexus ES commercial was on and they panned in on a close up of the grille. I like the fact that Toyota/Lexus are taking risks... but they need to dial it back, because this ^ is just.... NO! I think the Camry SE/XSE is pretty hot, but they just took it too far on the Avalon.

    Speaking of the Avalon... anybody heard the exhaust note on the sporty one? It actually sounds pretty damn good! HAhahaha. Never thought I'd be saying that about an Avalon!
