Arrow The Woman Responsible for the UX

Chika Kako is the woman behind the UX and I feel one of the reasons it is as good as it is regarding options, materials and styling. Most entry level vehicles are sparse on amenities and big on their name—not so the UX. Being a female executive in a major Japanese corporation is a big deal (although she plays it down). I know this having worked for a major Japanese corporation in their top-tier of management and traveling between offices in the States and Japan.

Great article about Kako: Toyota’s only female executive says her mission has always been to ‘speak her mind’

Who is responsible for why it looks so ugly?

As with any styling it's a matter of personal preference, and personally, I like the styling. Considering that Lexus is marketing it as their entry level SUV, it offers a lot in the way of styling.

I also like the styling of UX, like all Lexus cars they look the best in person and on the road. She was also the Chief Engineer for the model CT.

Styling (and UX overall) is growing on me, but my first impression, even in person, was not great.

I thought it was ugly until I saw it in person. It looks pretty cool with the F-Sport package.
