If you haven't noticed at AutoSpies, we're pretty big on certain things when it comes to automobiles.

One is definitely technology. If a vehicle is lacking in the tech department, relative to the competition, then we're going to have something to say about it.

Another is design. If a vehicle is not slick looking or is missing that certain "X" factor that makes buyers' heads turn, then it is problematic for the Agents. This applies to the exterior AND the interior.

Having said that, we've always wondered why certain nameplates can never seem to get it right. Take, for example, the Toyota Prius.

Looking across the Prius' four generations, they're all a bit wonky. There's no question that the third-generation Prius is the best of the lot but that's like saying "This is the prettiest pug."

It's damning with faint praise.

Meanwhile, you've got Tesla gunning for the alternative energy vehicle market with much more well sorted designs. Sure, the Model X and Model 3 look bulbous but, overall, the designs are better than the Prius — inside and out. That's because they look premium.

When comparing it to the all-new Prius' design, it's pretty obvious — straight away — which one is more appealing.

So, I've got to ask: WHY does the Toyota Prius have to look...like a Prius?



WHY Is It That The Toyota Prius HAS TO Look Like...A Toyota Prius?
