The Toyota Mirai sports a pretty interesting and futuristic design; some of it is a little awkward and weird to look at, but the idea was to project 'maximum air intake' with the car's design. That said, the big grills/air ducts on either side of the front bumper are the most striking feature of its design. The idea is that to streamline air as much as possible while you drive, and this is clearly one of the most striking elements that you find in the car.
