the body shape is beautiful enough that they didn't need some of the overdone styling like the taillights but overall great job. the taillights and the center stack where everything is slightly misaligned are my only issues.

I am thankfully surprised overall. Much better than the spy shots lead on.

Much more adventurous than the outgoing generation, and better for it. Nice shape and roofline. stellar interior.

I have issues with the front and rear though. The headlight DLO thing is just a party trick and I don't really care. But the actual headlight shape is very strange in how it kicks up and stretches back so much. I'm still unsold on the face, but at least the lower corners lift the sheet metal and look more integrated. The lack of any trim/surround around the grille is very off-putting though. The slat pattern is meh and without a trim piece it just looks weak (should have gone full width horizontal bars or a mesh of sorts).

The tail lights are still pure rip-offs from a Civic and didn't need to be. Rear proportions overall are very nice.

Honestly the front end and rear end are monstrosities. Prius ugly.
Cool interior for the segment though.

Hopefully can be fixed in the mid-cycle facelift.

The lights-o-rama headlights seems kind of dated to me.

Flip the front grill vertically, and you will be looking at the 201x Aston Martin DB11 Volante. In fact, the entire design framework seems to have been forklifted from the DB11, including the rear combo lamps, the front grill, the horizontal segmentation of the front face, even how the edge/tip of the sheetmetals is molded around the front grill, etc. But I have to give them that they successfully resolved them into the family sedan. That must have been quite dramatic! The only thing that is original seems to be the front led tape.
