#2: Suzuki X-90
Some cars are such eye-burning disasters that they can’t even last more than one model year. Such is the case with the atrocious Suzuki X-90, which lasted just one year in America. But hey, the X-90 lasted three whole years in its native Japan – quite the accomplishment!
The biggest issue with the Suzuki X-90 is that the car looks like it has no idea what it is supposed to be. Part Japanese economy car, part truck, part coupe, and part SUV, the X-90 looks like the recycled, amalgamated parts from a car graveyard were bonded together without rhyme or reason. With a pickup-like rear, a sporty spoiler, and a nondescript front end, the Suzuki X-90 just never made any damn sense.
During its production years and ever since, the Suzuki X-90 has been bashed as being one of the worst cars ever produced, and sales were so bad that Suzuki had to discontinue the vehicle after barely getting started. The X-90 may be really, really ugly, but the absolute ridiculousness of this vehicle almost makes it endearing.
#1: Fiat Multipla
Through and through, inside and outside, the Fiat Multipla is absolutely heinous, and it lands at #1 on our list of the ugliest cars ever produced. I mean, just look at that thing. The Multipla looks as though a smaller, parasitic car is trying to latch onto the top of a sedan and devour it. Whatever designer thought up the concept for the Fiat Multipla should have to reimburse everyone for the emotional trauma of having to see this eyesore on the road.
Incredibly, the Fiat Multipla lasted through three generations and 12 years of models, spanning from 1998 to its recent discontinuation in 2010. And while the car got ever so slightly better looking over those 12 years, even at its best, the Multipla still looked like a complete disaster.
With clunky, bulging features all over – including those godawful windshield-mounted running headlights – the exterior of the Multipla drew strange looks from passing motorists. But the interior was equally bad, as the vehicle was equipped with an absurd two rows of three seats; the Multipla was the one vehicle in its class to do this, and it was a wise choice for their competitors not to.
Performance was never a real issue with the Fiat Multipla, but when a car is this ugly, it’s hard to notice much more than its looks.
With apologies (or congratulations!) to the rest of the cars on this list, the Fiat Multipla is our pick for the ugliest car of all time.
