It’s said that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but some cars on the road today are more “ugly step-sister” than Cinderella. (The Nissan Juke comes to mind.) These are some of the most beautiful cars on the market today – but be warned, some of them have quite a hefty price tag.
Buick has come a long way to prove that it isn’t just a car for your granny anymore, and the Buick LaCrosse truly started that transformation. When the current LaCrosse came out in 2010, it was met with high praise. The car didn’t look like anything Buick had made before, mainly because the Chinese were the ones who did the styling.
The design of the LaCrosse is a modern interpretation of classic Buick style. Confident and reserved, the LaCrosse features a waterfall grill flanked by scimitar headlamps which flow seamlessly and give the car a little more character.
Like its big brother, the Regal was globally designed, meaning it’s more European than American. But that helps it: the Regal is bold where it needs to be, yet restrained where it needs to be. It has muscular presence and stance, complemented and integrated into the rear deck lid.
Alfa Romeo 4C
The human eye loves to follow a graceful curved line, which is something the Alfa Romeo 4C has in spades. One could argue when they designed the 4C, they must have been following the adage about the vintage femme fatale: she has more curves than the Monaco Gran Prix and is twice as fast. The 4C has very voluptuous fenders where its beautiful eyes sit.
