Default Lexus CT Spindle Grille Update

Here's a rendering of what the CT would look like with an updated spindle grille:

And if this is the new direction Lexus is going with their outward appearence....I guess my 2012 CT will be the first and last Lexus I own, that front end is hideous!

poor render, I don't like how the upper and lower chrome don't align. I know what they're going for and it looks infinitely better than the half a**ed spindle on the current GS and CT

I like the spindle grill and front-end design direction of Lexus on the LS, RX F-Sport and the new IS. On the ES, pretty good too. Looks overdone on the CT almost like it's overtaking the entire front-end. It should be toned down and it will be a stunner.

I don't know I'm digging it. The gs looks 10x aggressive with it

I can't wait to see how the full spindle grill is incorporated into the design of the CT200h. I already love the way our car looks. I hope they don't mess it up!
