What’s The Lamest New Car On Sale?

We may earn a commission from links on this page.

Some cars try really hard to be cool. Sometimes this works (hi, 500 Abarth!) and sometimes it fails spectacularly.


Take the Scion xB, for instance. It's supposed to be a hip, spacious ride for instagrammed hipsterfolk, but it ended up a blobby box for the single and middle aged. The second generation Scion tried hard to be cool, and the harder it tried to please its target market, the more it sucked.

What other car on sale today, from hatchbacks to supercars, viciously attempts to be cool and ends up lame?
