A friend of mine that just leased a new Lexus couldn't get over the simple design of the interior on my Ti Sport. He complained the Lexus over done. In fact everyone who has gotten in to the car has said the same.I/we personally love the black/white logotypes and restrained use of color so as not to be too 'gimmicky'- you might refer to it as 'understated' design. The lack of in-you-face over-the-top use of Technicolor is actually a design language in itself and makes a much more elegant statement IMO.
For those needing to announce their presence, you have the classic Lexus big mouth bass grill and lots of ridiculous patronizing over-the-top designs out there. (Murata anyone?) There IS a demographic for that!
I'm totally cool with the main colored logo....I just like the subdued black and silver logos they have in other areas...too much of a good thing may not always be a good thing....and I think if you're going to go with a "blacked out" badge theme, why not go to black and silver to replace the main badge on the hatch....Ok, I get it that some people prefer the black and silver design. But how about the engine start/stop button? Don’t you prefer a red one?
