I see yesterday that MSN put out their top 5 best looking and top 5 ugliest cars. This is like the second time in the last 2 months.

The Juke was #1 ugliest, the Crosstour #2. the Acura (the one that looks like the CT) was #3. I know it's different looking, but I think it's pretty sharp and unique looking. I definately wouldn't call it ugly!!

I do think that the Juke is pretty ugly though. I guess beauty is in the eye of the beholder, evidently these knuckleheads have glucoma or something!!!

I love our CT and CRZ!! Honda's are the Shitte!!

Most of the negative comments about the CT have to do with its appearance, but all of those artistic criticisms are a complete mystery to me; to my eye, the CT looks quite a bit like the Accord Coupe, which the various experts think to be handsome. While I was filling up with gas today, a woman came over to me and said "that's a beautiful car". I told her that it had made the top 5 in the ugly car list, and she just shook her head and said she liked it very much. She then went away and got in her BMW, which looks very similar to the CT.

The coolest car on today's market is Juke.
Who disagree should take a test drive.

Who does not like CT go for boring TSX wagon. Or Subaru Impreza, or SAAB 9.3 wagon (what the difference)

I guess when you write an article it is most safe to pick on the new kid in the neighborhood.

I think the Juke has Character and don't think it is ugly at all. I think these critics like vanilla, plain jane, run of the mill cars that look alike. When something new comes out that breaks the mold they think it is ugly. I just don't get it.

I just walked around a Juke that was parked at the entryway of the local Costco. Now I understand why they filmed the commercial with the thing always moving.

:)

I won't say it's "ugly" but there are some seriously unflattering angles when looking at that car.

And for the record - EVERYONE that has talked to me has loved the way the CT looks, outside and in. I think people "inside the beltway" get caught up in their own ideas absent of the rest of the world - it's not an uncommon phenomenon and the only way to *not* get caught up in it is to simply ignore them. Let them spend their days natching about things, and meanwhile the rest of the world has things to do (and fun to be had). The rest, as they say, is politics.

I've seen a couple of those Jukes driving around and I don't like them at all but I can see why some people would it's different. To me the back seat and cargo area are just obviously to small.

As far as the CT goes, I've had at least half a dozen strangers just come up to me and start up conversations by asking me about my car or complementing it. That's never happened before.

The first time I saw a Juke ( at the dealer), I thought it was kind of neat and interesting, but when I actually got out and walked around and looked at it a little closer, don't like it and I do think it is ugly.

I'm on the CRZ forum also, alot of the people over there own or have owned a Honda Fit. I actually don't like those either. They are not as ugly as the Prius, but they are kind of like it!

In addition to the CT, I also own a CRZ, some people aren't sold on the looks of it either. But everyone evidently likes what they like, it's just hard to believe that someone would spend the money they do on something like a Scion Cube.

But I guess that is why there are so many choices out there. Obviously there is a WIDE range in taste!!

I finally saw a CRZ the other day and I thought it looked pretty good - I definitely noticed it as something different.

With all the curves and bumps in the pictures I'll have to see it in person to see if it appeals. This said after the first pic of a CT I saw made it look like a platypus.

Lol its true beauty is in the eye of the beholder... I know people that think Lamborghini's are the ugliest cars ever made. While I completely consider that a blasphemous statement I can't change his opinion lol. Most of the people that hate on the CT own Accords. CTs are very popular around here because its an awesome alternative to the plain looks of the Accord. I see them everyday now. (Mostly in PMM or CBP)

I think the Juke looks so different that it's cool and those cars are ridiculously fun to drive. Nissan actually sold more than they expected to. For some reason ppl gave it more of a shot than the CT, probably cause a fully loaded one runs for like 24 grand lol...

My wife wanted something different, she got it I presume? Who decides for us what car looks good? If one car looked that great then we would have only one choice in cars to choose from right. Lady Gaga showed up at the Emmys in an egg cover…does that look good?...not sure about the Juke though but to each his own

Platypus is a good metaphor.

Jelly Bean works also, My Wife thinks the CT is Ugly but also thinks it a great car. I am still a firm believer that the CT is at it's best when seen in person. Yes, the nose does have a Platypus look but Honda took Aerodynamics into consideration first. I’ll take better gas mileage over looks any day for my daily driver. Anything looks funny at first, take a new borne baby they all look funny at first then with in a few minutes they look beautiful. Ok, not the greatest analogy but you get my point. The CT is a very functional car and for my practical side, it all works for me.

Off topic, but what does "natching"mean? Couldn't find it in any dictionary.

Ya as the old saying goes 'beauty in the eye of the beholder' and doubt many here will call another car ugly knowing all the dime store critics are trashing the looks of the CT and don't want to sound hypocritical. We are above all that but before I had any knowledge of what others thought of the CT I loved the look and that was my first impression and never forgot it.I only ever saw 1 on the road before I went to the dealer to see one in person with my first impression thought still in my head and after I drove it I knew I wanted it(just had to convince the other half away from the Venza,the squished mini van,opps I'm above that,haha).The bottom line is if you like the looks of something then you like the looks of something that's your taste and style and will reflect on the car you drive the cloths you wear and the porn you watch,haha . Fck what others think.Having said that I think the Juke is kinda Kinky if your into that sort of thing.

bitter old men or women who realize life has passed them by become 'natched' and will sit around with others like themselves 'natching' away at the cruel world finding comfort in there misery!
