Why do cars have to look so "edgy" nowadays?

Why do cars have to look so "edgy" nowadays?
While automakers describe the design as "aggressive," I use the term "edgy" instead to point out how it looks so unnecessarily over-the-top and over-styled, with fake aggressiveness, with black accents and sharp lines and odd shapes. Just like an edgy, angsty teenager that wants to show how tough he is.

    Now look at this. Muscular? Yes. Aggressive? Yes. Edgy? No. The design looks true to what the car is meant to be. It's not trying to be over the top in being what it's not.

    "Modern" car designs, rather than 2010s holdovers seem to prefer high contrast mixes of black and metal colors along with large fancy mag rims and thin matrix headlights. They also tend to drop the grilles for both EV and aesthetic reasons.
    They are also violently utilitarian in terms of reducing drag making the cars generally much more sleek, less unnecessary origami creases.

    The new mustang looks better than the old one, and I don't care about your weird linguistic theory. I have a different theory which is that you're too poor to afford a new mustang and I'm not, that's why they designed it with my preferences in mind and not yours. I discovered this phenomenon when they unveiled the new M2, and noticed that the poorer the person, the more they hated its look.

      The M2 looks cool to me, IDK what you're talking about. Not everyone fits in your neat little descriptions kiddo.

      There's still soft cars. This is a +80k Mercedes EQE SUV. It looks like a MPV.

          Yep. It looks unique. They tried something with the design that wasn't just horrendous massive kidney grills like the rest of the lineup.
          Sure it may look a bit weird from some angles, I don't think it's the greatest design on Earth, but it grew on me.
          It looks aggressive but not in an edgy angsty "pissed off for no reason" kind of way like the Mustang.

    anyone else think the new mustangs look too much like accords in the front?
    I don't get it, the previous models looked so good, I loved the slanted headlights and the bulbous hood. it looked like a shark. then they had to ruin them and make them look like commuter sedans.

      No, frick you. The accord looks like the accord and the mustang looks like the mustang.

      I don't like how the new mustang looks though, the outgoing generation looked much better IMO. Headlights and tail lights look much too small on the body.

    I think LED headlights are a big part of it. Designers suddenly have the power to make the headlights pretty much whatever size and shape they want and they're all going crazy with it, making these edgy squinty eyes now because they're the furthest thing from the big reflectors they used to have to design around.
