The Ten Most Boring Cars You Can Buy Today

There are many exciting cars on the market today. If you somehow bought one of these ten horribly bland transportation appliances, get your head checked.

10.) Mitsubishi Lancer

The Lancer is a pretty old car by all means, and the ES should really be called the Lancer Devolution. It's got the same crappy interior, but none of the performance.

9.) Toyota Prius

The only groundbreaking thing about the Prius anymore is how Toyota's marketing people managed to fool everybody into thinking they save more polar bears by driving the main cause of smugness in North America instead of a diesel.

8.) Chevrolet Malibu

The Malibu got a facelift and will text for you, but it's a car that "does the Camry thing better than the Camry does right now" according to Autoblog. You can imagine how thrilling that must be.

7.) Kia Sedona

Say hi to a car that feels like it's from the last century. Buckus says:

It's a decent knock-off or an early 2000's Honda Odyssey, but that's about it.

Pretty much.

6.) Honda Crosstour

It's not just boring, it's pointless too. primalzer doesn't like the idea:

While also being ugly and hateful, this has to be the most boring car/crossover/turd on sale. There seems to be nothing spectacular, innovative, or special about it. It is an accord that looks like it has elephantiasis.

5.) Subaru Legacy

Subarus are nice. On the other hand, the Legacy with the CVT and the four banger is also pretty uninspiring according to POD:

Bulky, chunky styling. No steering feel, not much acceleration feel. Despite the awd system it still manages to understeer about as bad as my Speed3

The Zzzz's carry their way into the interior with fields of textured hard plastic, seats that do little to support anything, and flappy paddles that take the better part of a fortnight to change the simulated gear ratios.

It's a nice enough car, but I'd rather be in a Camry. Or a Avenger. Or a Sonata.

4.) Volkswagen Jetta

So, you wanted a "European" car. Fine. Problem is, the base Jetta is anything but European. Cheap plastics and no soul.

America's most affordable new compact sedan is also its most boring one.

2.) Mitsubishi Galant

Yes, it's still on sale, and it costs more than a Mazda6. Seriously. If you just bought one, that must have been by accident. Go and sleep it off.

No one suggested it in the QOTD, but I'd say that the Bentley Continental GT deserves to be on this list.

I remember when you might see a Bentley once a year, maybe. It would be huge, it would probably be rented out for a wedding, and it would be an event.

But now Bentley makes the Conti GT, a reworked VW Phaeton coupe and they are absolutely everywhere. If there was a Camry for rich people, it'd be the Bentley Conti GT.
