Does anyone know the reason the front grill would be partially blocked off? Plasti dipped my front and discovered it was just for show.

What's open is likely considered adequate for cooling. At high speeds, more air is collected from below anyway. Some cars have active shutters on the grill to close it off at highway speeds to improve aerodynamics.
So yeah, most of the grill is there for styling.

Styling cue meets fuel economy and aerodynamics cue.

The grill only needs to be X big but it LOOKS better if it's X+10.

This is common across most brands.
