• A colleague has a white F-Pace that doesn't look any worse than other bloated road-tanks out there, but I did look through the interior pics on that auction and Woof!

    Everyone likes to beat up on the Aztek but they've grown on me for some reason with time.

    Instead, I'll pick on another Jaguar mistake – the X-Type. Sure, it's easy pickins, but what ill-conceived platform sharing.

    • That was the first one that came to mind when I saw this thread, too. While one could try to borrow Ignatius Reilly's writing style to describe what is wrong with this, I have to wonder if he was the lunatic who wrote the memo justifying its production in the first place.

      The Acura ZDX is another good "What were they thinking?" car. They built an SUV where the roof line tapered down so aggressively that the back seat in that thing is useless. Perhaps the initials stand for Zero Demand Expected.

    • BMW 5 series GT?

      X6?

    • I thought the same until a buddy of mine bought a 550 GT and let me drive it. The room of a 7 Series and the utility of a hatchback. Weird arrangement with the split tailgate/trunk lid…until you end up seeing how frequently you use it in both modes. It puts the UG in Ugly but was an incredible driver.
      You have to set the way back machine to full for this one, which is actually VW's version of the BMW 550 GT

    • The Mercedes GLC "Coupe" is equally as nasty as the BMW.

    • The 5er GT, X6, Mbz GLC Coupe all share an awkward Tesla Model X-ish Orthopaedic shoe shape, but that Nissan abomination really takes the cake. It shall henceforth be known as "It that shall not be named". Or if you are a death eater — the Nissan Voldemort.

  • It's got that stop/start tech where it turns off at stoplights. That's barely acceptable in golf carts. 4-cylinder diesel. What a load. Egads.

  • These little Nitros always struck me as strange

  • The ARNA. A joint venture between Alfa Romeo and Nissan in the early 80's. Combined the worst qualities of both parents into one toxic stew.

  • Another useful truck bed

  • Just before some companies get it right, they get it terribly wrong.. The Frankenstein nature of the FWD Datsun B-210 is hard to un-see.

  • Range Rover Evoque WTF?
    Both ugly and unfunctional, and judging by the away people drive them a blind spot as bad as a prius.

  • The current Lexus Spindle Grill is by far the ugliest appendage on any modern vehicle. Couple that with the going nowhere random body sculpting on several models and you have "What were they thinking?".

    • hey, Z – if you're wondering why your image link fubar'd the site, it's not always the coding – i, myself, yes, i, kaibeezy, have had this happen a number of times – i think it must be that some image hosts can tell when you're doing this kind of thing and put the kibosh on it – all you can really do is either find that image somewhere else, or screenshot it and save it up to imgur

    • Yarp. At least I was able to reload and hit escape to stop the fubar and delete the post. It was a nice Predator vs Lexus Grille mashup, but, apparently, it was too ugly even for here.

    • Seems like bad design is endemic within the Toyota empire. The new Camry's front end looks like a baleen whale on the hunt for krill, and all of their mom trucks have angry kitchen appliance front ends.

    • I am seeing two upcoming TT – what is the current best looking mass produced car / reasonable family daily driver and what is the best looking current car period.

    • yeah, Aztek, unless…

  • The F-Type is sold out for 6 months. In person it's a very good looking vehicle, rides well, handles great, and the SC version is quick, all at a great price point. If selling these a la Porsche keeps the F-Type screaming around tracks, I'm all for it.

    And no, I don't own an SUV. My DD is an Abarth.

  • Yeah, OK, so I broke the rules…a real car. But not a production car.

    Yet.
