The ugliest new car

For a Friday afternoon: the-ugliest-car-that-you-can-buy-brand-new-thread.

Inspired by the Mitsuoka Galue V.


The challenge is to come up with something uglier.

Re: The ugliest new car

I would add wheel spinners and a little more gold bling, but otherwise - sweet ride...

You are correct. That is the Multipla, though the Doblo is not a lot better

Can't see the point of glueing slabs of giant chocolate bars down the sides.

Until I can come up with the ultimate, I'll throw in a couple for consideration:

- Porsche Cayenne

- BMW X6

..... both trying to find a market that either doesn't exist or already over-filled with better candidates.

But not forgetting that both are piss-poor ugly and usually driven by bald, fat middle-aged insignificant small men with little weeners, and/or their mutton-dressed-as-lamb WAGs.

Visually it is - but I've not met an owner of one who would swap it for the saloon or touring versions (it has a larger boot than the touring!!). It seems to offer an SUV feel but without the SUV frontal area (so reduced economy and better performance).

It is a "not for me car" though.

That Chrysler 200 is horrid - but then so are a lot of US market only vehicles.

It is also worth remembering a lot of this is subjective - I quite like the Cactus and the current Citroen design language - the outgoing C6 is superbly cool in my eyes. Mind you I thought the Renault Avantine was a classic the day it was launched.

For me, the ugly cars are the ones that simply don't try (Sorry Mr May that means the Dacia Sandero); or the ones that try too hard to be something they're not - which tends to mean anything out of South Korea; or finally the ones that try to be a copy - so anything Chinese.

Re: The ugliest new car

I don't understand why the Jap-brand car designs are getting worse. They used to have a lot of good, clean design before. Look at Toyota and their ridiculous designs. I used to like their american-designed cars. Honda's alien cars, Nissan and their crab-eyed Juke, Lexus and their tasteless designs, etc. South Korean cars are improving a lot though...
