Cringeworthy - These are the most embarrassing German cars
Some cars have the average consumer wonder, what the manufacturer was thinking during the development. Here we show the most embarrassing cars of recent German automotive history.
This includes the chubby Audi A2 - a prime example of how a car should not look.
The Opel Agila doesn't look particularly agile. Specifically the caved in rear end makes you want to look the other way.
The two-tone paintwork of the Maybach is unnecessary as a goiter. apart from that the big barge looks like an S-class for show-offs with no sense of style or taste.
Off-road look is in vogue, but the off road capability the VW Up suggests is just embarrassing.
A beautiful backside can be a delight - but the hatchback of the BMW 3 Series compact is anything but aesthetically pleasing.
Granted, the Smart Roadster is a real fun car. The design, however, went completely wrong.
What a letdown: The New Beetle almost tarnishes the cult of the original Beetle.
The first Mercedes A-Class - one wonders why this car has ever sold quite well. Meanwhile, the compact car has become a real feast for the eyes.
No eye candy: the coupÃƒÂ©-like roofline of the BMW X6 looks completely out of place on this behemoth on wheels.
The Brits are not amused, neither are we: The Clubman, Germanised and bloated by BMW, does not bear any resemblance to the English original.
From the front to the middle, the design of the Mercedes R-Class is no cause for criticism. From the C-pillars back, however, it's downright unpleasant, to say the least.
The VW Lupo with its bulging eyes is not a nice car to begin with, but the police version takes the biscuit.
The Mercedes Vaneo looks like a too tall A-Class. After less than four years the design experiment was thankfully concluded.
One-liter car or not - the styling of the VW XL1 is a complete failure.
