The 2012 Detroit Auto Show has come and gone, and as always, left auto aficionados around the world to praise, ogle and make jabs at the lineup. While there were a plethora of fine machines at this year’s show, there were also some Detroit duds to make fun of! Don’t worry–none of our exotic rental cars in Chicago made this list!
Without further ado, the top 5 lowlights of the Detroit Auto Show were as follows:
5. Acura ILX concept
4. Nissan Pathfinder concept
3. Chevrolet Tru 140S concept
2. Chevrolet Code 130R concept
1. Volkswagen E-Bugster concept
The Acura ILX concept looks like it was conceived in less than 5 minutes by a 5th grader. The car is simply boring enough aesthetically, that I could care less what is even under the hood.
The Nissan Pathfinder needs to find a more modern path if it intends to excite new clientele, or even coerce existing fans into investing. Boring.
The Chevy Tru 140S looks like someone forced air into a Geo Metro and gave it some decent wheels…I am afraid.
The Chevrolet Code 130R concept looks like a Dodge Charger met up with a garbage compactor…and then got painted.
The true horror that still haunts me is the Volkswagen E-Bugster concept (shiver). VW Bugs are already crawling in substantially high numbers on all roadways; do we really need to see any of these eyesores join the ranks?
Best cars at the show this year: Lexus LF-LC, Acura NSX
