The Ugliest Modern Cars People Actually Drive

Here is a list of ugly cars I not so often see on the road. There are just so many but these are the cream of the crop when it comes to ugly.

Nissan Cube – Cute, quirky, adorable, and whimsical? Maybe if the world is like Toontown at Disneyland. Fortunately, it is not and this oddity should not be in our world. Odd is an understatement. This is one of the ugliest contraptions on four wheels. When I see the Cube on the road and look over to see who’s driving, I expect a clown in full makeup and balloons to be at the wheel.

Honda Insight – Don’t get me wrong, and hats off to Eco-friendly, electric hybrid technology. But, why does it have to be so ugly? I know Honda spent tons of money developing the Insight. I just don’t understand why they can’t spend some of that budget making the Insight a little less dorky. Seriously, anyone that drives this will instantly become a helpless pansy.

Pontiac Aztek – This is probably the supreme ruler of the fugly car kingdom. The blueprints for this car were probably stolen from Homer Simpsons. If the Aztek was a transformer, it would be named Hideous Prime. I found out that in 2007, a whopping 25 was sold. Wow, really? Anything higher than ZERO is amazing to me. The Aztek is best suited to be the official fleet vehicle for Lego land theme park.

Subaru Baja – If you look up the word ugly in the dictionary, you will see a picture of the Baja. Is it a car? Is it a truck? No wait, it’s a cruck. Boy, this is a mess. Besides being an eyesore, it comes equipped with loads of crappy plastic bulging around the entire bottom half. This is one of those things where the real thing is even uglier in person than in photos.

Chevy SSR – Once named by TIME magazine as 1 of 50 worst car of all time. As if being underpowered and expensive wasn’t bad enough, it also looks like garbage. The retro look with modern flare is just not working. Leave the hotrodding to the experts GM! Nobody wants to buy a “factory Hotrod.” This lesson was already taught with the creation of the other abomination, the Plymouth Prowler.

Other cars that should be on this list.

Toyota Prius

08+ Acura TL

Honda Element

Chevy Avalanche

Chrysler PT Cruiser

    My Baja Eyesore is still going strong at a 108K. 2003 Red and silver. I really don’t care if people’s eyeballs fall out as I go by.
