The 5 Ugly Cars of The Telegraph Version

Currently we are still discussing the automotive products that are considered ugly. When a car is designed and then made sure the hope to be liked and sold in the market. However, the style and the resulting shape is not always in line with expectations. Sometimes misses estimates, the resulting vehicle is considered bad form that has not met the consumer expectations and not even be sold in the market.

This is even done by renowned automotive manufacturers. As reported by The Telegraph a famous British newspaper that would accommodate the aspirations of many users of the car and finally making a list of the cars that are considered ugly. The ugly definition is not only seen from the interior only, but also the overall performance of the car, especially the outside looks was odd, unusual and considered ugly.

Here are 5 rows of ugly cars were abstracted from The Telegraph,

5. Toyota Yaris Verso
The Telegraph does not matter, whether the Toyota Yaris Verso is a vehicle that is classified as a city car, a van, or a combination of both. However, the combination of the two versions of this car makes the form look ugly and weird.

The Telegraph wrote about this car, "The Toyota Yaris Verso might well have its loyal followers, but there's no denying that this little car, which is a cross between a supermini and a van, is a challenge to behold. Useful, yes, attractive, no."

4. Subaru Tribeca
The Subaru Tribeca is a mid-size crossover SUV sold since 2005 by Subaru, the automobile manufacturing division of Japanese transportation conglomerate Fuji Heavy Industries (FHI). Released in some markets as the Subaru B9 Tribeca, the name "Tribeca" derives from the TriBeCa neighborhood of New York City. Built on the Subaru Legacy platform and sold in five- and seven-seat configurations.

This car has a strange shape on the front so that makes this car included as one of ugly cars form ever produced.

3. SsangYong Rodius
This car includes a multipurpose vehicle and production of Korean automobile manufacturer which has three rows of seats so that it can carry one big family. Odd shape on the front and rear plain shape makes this car not sold in the sale.

The Telegraph wrote "The original design brief, apparently, was to capture the essence of a luxury yacht. To gauge the success of this, we recommend the entire production run be shipped to the mid-Atlantic and dropped over the side."

The SsangYong Rodius could offer a lot of space and 7 seats for a cheap price, but that’s about it. It has no style, lacks safety equipment and has an uncomfortable ride. It may be one of the cheapest ways of getting 7 seats but the depreciation is scary.

2. Fiat Multipla
This Italian-made family car called the Fiat Multipla is one ugly car ever produced. Multipla has an odd shape with the dominance of the box format. The family car has two rows of seats and each row can be filled with 3 passengers. In fact, The Telegraph called it as unconventional styling.

Furthermore The Telegraph wrote "Derided for the blandness of its output during the 1980s and early 1990s, Fiat dared to start thinking outside the box. In this case, however, it simply added wheels to the box and chucked in a few curved balls."

1. Pontiac Aztec
The car carrying the SUV (sport utility vehicle) type is called Pontiac Aztec, has been in production by the manufacturer of Pontiac in 2001-2005. In total body shape looks weird to make this car not sold in the market and this car was voted by The Telegraph as one ugly car ever produced. When voting began, many of you possibly didn't know what an Aztek was.

Proof that Americans do ugly better than anyone else, the Aztek was General Motors' first mid-size "crossover" sport utility vehicle, based on a 1999 show concept with "Xtreme" styling. On sale from 2001-2005, priced from $21,445 with a 3.4-litre V6 engine and front-wheel drive or "Versatrak" 4WD, the Mexican-built Aztek was marketed as "quite possibly the most versatile vehicle on the planet", in other words the product of a cost-cutting committee's attempt to please as many people as possible. But designer Wayne Cherry (previously responsible the droop-snoot Vauxhalls of the 1970s) deserves most of the blame. There was also a GT version.

Unfortunately those cars mentioned above are not circulating in our country so it is not easy to evaluate objectively based on the tastes of each customer who certainly have a different opinion. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | THE TELEGRAPH | DIH | PIKIRAN RAKYAT 05042013]
