Rank them in order from First to Last...this should be fun. I'm in the market for a new car myself and I'd like to see how my taste line up with the taste of Aura/Malibu owners and overall GM enthusiast. I've posted this thread here, on VWVortex, Edmunds.com and D/A.net to see some results. Certain cars were left out for various reason (G6 I left out, Optima was left out, Chrysler twins,etc.) because I don't particularlly care for them..but if you want to add them in the mix feel free to do so.

Wow, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.....I'm the only one that thinks the Malibu is hideous.

No Milan?

Malibu- just an overall sexy look
Mazda- very classy and much more upgraded look
Aura- Nice look, but missing something...smallish tail lights
Milan- Best looking of the 3 Fusion rebadges. LEDs and HID's look great
Altima- Nice style but tacky tail lights
Accord- 5 series rip off, front looks like the space shuttle
Fusion- Mach 3 blades dont look attractive on any Ford
Camry- Blobby look overall, sport package
Passat- Ugly front, ugly body, blobby flat sided look.

Ooh, forgot about the Milan. I think it's very good looking. Much better then the Fusion for sure!

The Mazda 6 and Malibu both have front ends from the front doors foward that I think do not match the rest of the vehicle. 1. Aura 2. Mazda 6 3. Malibu 4. Accord (it's growing on me) 5. Camry

The Camry, Malibu, and Altima are the best at hiding/reducing front overhang and giving overall that RWD look. So I would rank them as:

1. Malibu
2. Altima
3. Camry
4. Accord
5. Mazda6
6. Aura
7. Fusion
8. Sonata.

The Fusion and Sonata look dated while the Aura is overdone/trying too hard IMO. I love the Malibu from the side, short front overhang, high belt line, very classy and sophisticated.

1. Malibu-it's just so timelessly classy
2. Mazda6-sporty unique style; those RX-8 wheel arches are definately different
3. Altima-sporty exterior title stolen by Mazda6. Disappointing evolutionary redesign, but still desirable
4. Milan-unoffensive chromed upscaled look
5. Camry-Not really ugly. At its intro, I kinda liked it. The newness has worn off.
6. Aura-never liked the headlight assembly, but love the rear
7. Passat-classy like 'Bu, but not enough of a commanding presence; diminuitive
8. Accord-while in person it looks less bad, it is still bad. That side crease is enough to ridicule; huge
9. Sonata-completely unoriginal; conservative(not in bad way)
10. Fusion-that grill and those headlights...

Overall I would say Camry. The Accord is very stately, but it's not very sexy (the coupe is very nice though). The 6 is sexy, but nothing is proportioned right. The Aura came close to being a knockout (God it had potential), but it's ******* really dated looking and was the day it was unveiled. The only nice thing I can say about the Malibu is that it's better than the car it replaces. The Fusion is very dated and cheap looking. Talking about the others would be a waste of my life.

1. Aura (I've been in love with it since day 1)
2. Malibu (Leading the way for Chevrolet styling)
3. Fusion (Clean, but not as stylish as above)
....
4. Passat (German, what do you want. Bland.)
.....
5. Mazda 6 (This is where the list starts to get bad)
6. Camry (Big improvement over the old one, but think cavalier to cobalt here)
7. Altima (Those tail lights give me nightmares)
8. Sonata (Wreaks of poor quality and mediocrity)
....
........
..........
9. Accord (I gag every time I see one, not sure how anyone can stand its styling. It burns the eyes.)
