Why Do Cars Seem to Have Faces?

With its headlights like eyes, and its grill like a mouth, and the tip of the hood like a nose, yeah, my old Toyota does look like it has a face. Car manufacturers have picked up on people’s tendency to see faces in cars, and have been manufacturing cars with the facial appearances you are likely to buy.
