#7 of 124 Just on a whim
Apr 26, 2007 (12:09 pm)
There isnít a 2007 xB so the 2006s are just seriously ugly. I will also agree the xA isnít pleasing to look at either. Subaruís decision to make the Tribeca and Impreza look like bottom-feeding suckerfish has to place them in the same boat. I am not too impressed with the Dodge Nitro looks wise. The Prius looks a lot like a loafer someone put wheels on and the Yaris hatch is nothing to write home about. Honda should be ashamed of themselves for making the Element and the Ridgline may be a nice try but it isnít any more attractive than a Element without a back end. Hummer has the H-2 and H-3 that are ugly for no other reason other than a family resemblance to the H-1. Ugly without a reason.

1)Lincoln Town Car
10)BMW Z4 Coupe
Dishonorable mention: Jeep Compass, Subie Tribeca, Yota Yaris 4-dr., Subaru Impreza, (old and new), Porsche Cayenne.
Wow, an Audi, two Bimmers and a Porsche make the ugly list, what is the world coming to? I especially can't wrap my head around the concept of an ugly Audi.

That is a tough concept!
The Tribeca follows an old line of ugly - that center grill. That's tough to pull of - ask Ford about the Edsel.

You must have beer goggles on if you can't see how ugly that beast is. I'm not questioning it's fuction but man it sure is a eye sore. I know I wouldn't want my company's name on the side of one. Customer's would turn you away at there door.

#12 of 124 I'll give ya most of 'em

I'm only hesitant to put the current Camry and CR-V, I'm not particularly crazy about either design and in both cases prefer the look of the vehicles they replaced - I just don't think they are top ten material.
Top twenty is another story....

The Sprinter is very EU in design. It is solely built for function. I kind of liked the one I had. I would buy another one before I would buy any of the current vans or mini vans.
None of them get an honest 25 miles to the gallon with an equal payload. I think the rest of your list are quite ugly.

gagrice, The Sprinter, I'm sorry might do it's job well but man I think many would agree it's gotta be the ugliest duckling of production vehicles.

Too bad that GM does not build a vehicle that is as practical. They would not be in the pickle they are in now. If GM built a PU with the Sprinter engine and transmission, I would already own one. It is better than anything they offer for practical transportation. Not beauty just functional. I think all the vehicles on your list and many more are as ugly with no functional value to them.
The view as I am typing. Wish you were all here. Stuck here for 2 weeks.
