Why do new millenium car designers whip up such eye sores, and totally disregard cool past designs    :-//

You can't beat a classic   :-+

Multipla is one of the ugliest on the outside but quite specious and comfortable on the inside for a mom/city car.

My entry is the Evoque convertible. Not so ugly from the esthetic viewpoint, but it's impracticality trumps all.
Second row of seats is unusable, which is common with convertibles, but it's not even a hard top. Being an SUV means it doesn't grip to the road well, so you basically got the worst of both worlds - SUVs and convertibles.
Not to forget the hefty price tag.

Let us not forget the horrendous rear design on the Audi Q3:

Apart from the Pajero sport, the next ugliest car on Australian roads at the moment would probably have to be the Nissan Juke. It's just so "bulbous" in all the wrong ways.
The Juke looks like someone at Nissan said to a 5 year old "See this pretty acceptable looking QashQai? Can you make a smaller version for us?"

the Nissan Juke.
Funny thing about these cars. It is obviously targeted towards the young people. With its funny look and happy ads. And it is a crossower, so it is obviously bought by the elderly people, because it doesn't have back breaking ride, and it is not very expensive like a SUV. For some reason they just like the crossovers. Especially the Dacia Duster, which is almost this ugly, but a lot cheaper.

Talking about under-motorised, these things come with a 1.5 dCi 85 Horsepower turbodiesel for high speed chases, and enough acceleration to make me as a prius owner cry, if this thing is before me. And it is very safe with 3 star ncap. Good for people without common sense and taste.

Unlike these funky looking crossovers, I can understand the need for a Duster. It's a dirty cheap off road-ish SUV, with a lot of space. Only thing strange is the very weak engine selection. Not sure how it even runs with 1.5l/85HP.

The Juke looks like someone at Nissan said to a 5 year old "See this pretty acceptable looking QashQai? Can you make a smaller version for us?"

The Pajero is bletcherous. The first time I saw it from a distance I thought it must have been one of those new Chinese imports.

On the Nissan, while I was in the UK recently having lunch with an old school friend of the wife, we got talking and I casually referred to the Nissan "Joke" (as I thought it must have been). Chuckle, ha ha. Until we got to the car park after lunch and she unlocked hers... oops.. Still, the first time I saw an EA Falcon I commented it must have been designed by a work experience student from the sheltered workshop and that offended the owner too. Compared to the bulbous pregnant roller-skates that pass for cars these days it's not so bad.

On two wheels, the Ducati 999 was a face only a mother could love also. That's what you get when you send a South African to do an Italians job.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder though, and I'm sure someone thinks these many examples are wonderful in some way or another.

A ham radio friend had an Aztek.  He took a lot of crap until he got rid of it.  My stepdaughter has a Cube.  Easy in and out but small and uncomfortable for bigger people.  I happen to like the rear end of my wife's 2012 Sonata limited. I tell her it's almost as sexy as hers. >:D

I don't know what that is, but there have been several similar hatchbacks that were reworked into similarly funky looking estates/station wagons.

I have to say that the cars Halcyon has been posting strike me as the most offensive.  Its like they exist in the uncanny valley of design - not quite ugly enough to be dismissed as a joke.

Such designs scare me on an instinctual level.  I'm not sure the people who designed these cars even realize the design is bad; and the idea that someone can unknowingly produce something so awful is concerning.

If a car is too ugly it just wraps around and becomes quirky or funny.

The Trabant; although I hear it has a cult following nowadays.

To chime in on the conversation:

Right next to the Fiat Multipla already posted on second place must be this abomination from hell.

PT Cruiser and PT Cruiser convertible




Chrysler never fails to come up with the fugliest "designs" ever.

A big part of the PT Cruiser's truly ingenious ugliness is the fact that it looks like a shortened hearse, especially when viewed from the back:



Which is really funny given the thing's attraction to the older demographics.....

Friend has an African Grey parrot, called Morticia. When moulting she plucked out all the feathers from her rear, leaving only a grey body, a bulbous backend and a beak at the other, just like a PT cruiser. Just as ugly as the PT as well.

BTW, there were a few PT cruiser hearses here as well, though last I saw of them they were all broken, and sitting in the Doves parking lot.

But even that was done before much, much better :)
