Halloween is next week and because it’s on a Friday many people are upset that they don’t get an entire weekend “before” all Hollow’s Eve. A Friday night also means more people will be out which reduces the potential for candy. The good news is that all of the pumpkin patches are already open as are haunted houses and if you want to see examples of frightening aesthetics you need look no further than these five autos:

2014 BMW X6 BMW calls the X6 a “Sport Activity Coupe”. It is meant to combine the sportiness and handling of a coupe with the practicality of an SUV thanks to a wide stance and high clearance. Much like the Grand Turismo models the rear of the X6 just sticks up too high and makes the car look bloated. It drives like a BMW but beautiful it is not.

2014 Infiniti QX80 – The QX80 is a luxurious large SUV with a gaudy amount of chrome and a hulking, bulky frame that is just plain ugly as far as luxury cars autos go. Every one of Infiniti’s other QX models has cleaner, smoother lines than the QX80 and all are priced considerably lower.

2014 Mini PacemanThe Paceman’s key drawback is that it looks as though the designers tried to raise the rear bumper while simultaneously deflating the roof line. The roof-line is so sheared off from the outside it appears as though only a child could fit in the back seat but in actuality the rear seat only loses two inches of headroom from the front.

2014 Nissan CubeNissan actually stopped making the Cube this early year so there won’t be a 2015 version. With a side opening rear-hatch and sofa-like rear seat the Cube was considered “quirky” and alternative but other small performers like the Kia Soul mostly left the Cube looking like something from “Monsters Inc.”

2014 Nissan JukeWith the Juke, Nissan goes from cartoonish to a small wagon that looks like a space rover. The Juke’s solid turbocharged, direct-injected 1.6L 4-cylinder engine makes 188 horsepower and every trim level is available with all-wheel-drive so you can make your way through any weather.

Just so you aren’t left dreaming of chunky, funky cars that don’t quite look like they belong on the road, one of the most beautiful cars to be introduced recently is the Jaguar F-Type. Available in either convertible or coupe, the F-Type’s clean lines and awesome performance are intended to appeal to men and women and the option packages allow buyers to customize the car to their own unique tastes. This is a work of art.
