This person's knowledge of cars is laughable. Completely missed the
Volkswagen Thing's past as a WW2 German utility vehicle not unlike
the USA's Jeep.

I also do not agree about the Pinto, El Camino, Mustang II, Chevette, Gremlin, Avalanche, Escalade, and Compass - while they might not have been the most attractive cars, they certainly are not among the fifty ugliest. There are way too many that rightfully deserve that honor.

The ugliest cars that top my list:
Isuzu Tribeca - absolutely the ugliest vehicle ever made with that hideous blow hole called a grille
Mistubishi Lancer - the car with a flat nose and a blunt butt, or is it a blunt nose and a flat butt
Nissan Cube
Honda Element
Honda Ridgeline
Honda CRV
Honda Insight
Honda Fit - but still think they should have several versions of this car - the Tizzy Fit, the Coniption Fit, and the Fit to be Tied
Toyota Yaris - the car with the name from the Atari game
Toyota Echo
Toyota Tercel
Toyota Prius
Toyota Previa - the oviod bubble on wheels
Toyota - actually just about everything they make - odd lines and curves with headlights, tail lights, and grilles that just don't fit together in the overall scheme
Saab - just about any vehicle they make or ever made
AMC Matador
AMC Pacer
Mazda 5 - the 5 door vehicle similar to the Fit
Mazda RX8
Subura WRX
Subura Forester
Isuzu Axiom
Kia Rio
Kia Soul
Hyundai Accent
Smart Car - aka the egg on wheels
Yugo
Renault - again just about anything they ever made
Mercury Merkur
Ford Contour - the car that looked like a blowfish sucking on a lemon
Scion xB - aka the shoe box on wheels
Nissan Versa
Ford Festiva
Ford Aspire
Ford Fiesta
Chevy Aveo
Audi TT - the car that needs to go the bathroom and looks like it can't decide whether it's coming or going
You mean Subaru Tribeca, right?
Anyway, all subjective, as for the post above mine, I too would put the Corvette on the list, as long as you specified anything after 1967.

As much as I like the new Camaro this Synergy Green has to be one of the ugliest cars ever.


He also mentions the VW Thing does not have a grill in the front.Why would you need one when the engine is in the back?The Thing is one of the funnest vehicles I have ever owned!

Seems the author of that article no longer writes for Businessweek, link here.

I agree, it is just one persons perspective all things considered...

Critics and researchers have recommended the PT Cruiser for its consistently high levels of quality and refinement—tying for first place in J.D. Power’s Initial Quality Survey (IQS) in July 2009. Other awards include:

• 2001 Chrysler PT Cruiser, North American International Auto Show, "North American Car of the Year"
• 2001 Chrysler PT Cruiser, African Americans on Wheels and Latinos on Wheels, "Car of the Year"
• 2001 Chrysler PT Cruiser, Strategic Vision, "Compact Car Segment"
• 2001 Chrysler PT Cruiser, Industrial Design Excellence, "Gold Award"
• 2001 Chrysler PT Cruiser, Automobile Magazine, "Best Small Car"
• 2004 Chrysler PT Cruiser, AutoPacific, "Top Vehicle customer satisfaction"
• 2005 Chrysler PT Cruiser, Edmunds.com, "Most Significant"
• 2006 Chrysler PT Cruiser, Consumer Guide, "Best Buy - Compact Cars Category"
• 2006 Chrysler PT Cruiser, Consumer Reports, "Recommended"
• 2008 Chrysler PT Cruiser, Consumer Reports “Recommended”
