When it comes to aesthetics, ugliness and beauty is always going to be subjective to the individual. Often times that ugliness will be offset by an attractive quirkiness that will make you forgive those ugly looks. Like a pug, some things are so ugly they come right back around to being cute again. Here are all your favorite ugly cars.

Welcome back to Answers of the Day, our daily Jalopnik feature where we take the best 10 responses from the previous Question of the Day and shine it up to show off. It’s by you and for you, Jalopnik readers. Enjoy!

Produced from 1998 until 2010, the Multipla was... I actually don’t know what to call it? An MPV? Anyway, it was weird and certainly quirky. Inside it had two rows of three seats instead of two front seats and a second row bench.

The Z4 Coupe, also known as the “Clown Shoe” (along with its Z3 Coupe forebear) was produced from 2002 - 2006. The next generation’s addition of a power folding hardtop saw no need for a coupe model going forward.

The Juke was hard to look at. It grew on some people over its nine year production run. There were even those that loved them. Nissan turned it into something else when they stuffed the GT-R drivetrain into it.

With its Bertone designed body, the Espada can be described as ugly or gorgeous depending on the perspective. A GT, it was produced for 10 years with production ending in 1978.

The Cube we received in the U.S. was actually the third generation of a model that had been on sale since the new millennium. It tried and ultimately failed to capture the box car popularity that Scion started with the Xb. It’s also one of those extreme rarities, a car with asymmetrical design, which probably didn’t help its funkiness.

Probably one of the most infamous car designs of the last 20 or so years, you can hate the Aztek’s looks, but you cant hate on how versatile it was as a lifestyle vehicle. Really it was a visionary vehicle, with things like a tent, air mattress and a whole cargo area perfect for tailgating. Honestly, it would probably sell well if it were still on sale today.

Surprisingly built for over eight years until 2014, the Mitsuoka Orochi was certainly an ...interesting looking car. Some thought that the NSX it was based on was wasted with a design that looked like that.

The Jeep FC (Foward Control) was produced from 1956 - 1965. It was unusual in that it had a cab over design. Almost like semi-truck. It may look awkward but it’s capable.

The Neon SRT-4 needs no introduction. It was a fugly beast and we’ll probably never see anything like it again.
