The first grill design on our list is the Lexus spindle grill. This is a bold design that looks very different from almost any other grill on the market. The spindle grill is very controversial, but it has definitely changed people's perception of Lexus as a boring brand for older buyers. This grill design took over three years
to finalize, and we think that it was the right move for Lexus. That said, the spindle grill works better on its smaller cars. The grills on the large cars like the LS and LX are a bit gaudy.
