Why anyone thinks the new Nissans look good is beyond me. I think they're extremely ugly from all corners. Allow me to point out the deficiencies:
First is the headlights. As mentioned, they look like a kid drew them. Second is the grille and air dam. That isn't aerodynamic or attractive. It looks like a brick wall and makes my 95 Regal more aerodynamic.
Third is the fender gaps. A few companies have started doing this. Look at the borders on the wheelwells. This attempts to draw attention from the fact that the gap between the upper edge of the wheelwell and the hood is massive and the car is not at all sporty. They add body lines so the car doesn't look as tall.
Small fender gaps. Notice how around the wheelwell is a fender flare that'* very tiny:

Compare to previous gen:
The other thing I hate that they're doing is that they're adding excessive body lines at the rear of the car to make it look like its not a stupidly tall car, when in fact the top of the trunklid comes up to your chest.
