The CUBE car

Clever design or just tacky? I think tacky. The design of cars has always been sleek and is some cases sexy, but the “cube” trend in cars is anything but. At one point there was a review on the local news that explained these cars as “kid friendly,” and the Honda Element’s interior could be  literally “hosed down” after a muddy soccer game. I personally don’t want the interior of my car to be hosed down, I want to smell leather, and feel important in my car.

Cars have for a long time been a kind of status symbol. If one drives a Bentley they must have some kind of money. To drive a Cadillac was what used to be the ultimate in luxury, but then if all of this is true what does it say about the “cube” car? Is it a good design? Is it a trend, is it unique anymore?
