A few weeks ago Jeremy Clarkson released his 10 best cars of the past year. Some of you were angry that most of them were out of your price range, but when you get a character like Clarkson chances are he’s not going to be saying that your wife’s minivan is the greatest thing in existence. After all this is a man that has owned some incredible autos and driven some of the most exotics examples in existence.
On his most recent list, however, you might have a better chance obtaining a few. Though I doubt you’d want to. You see this list is his 10 worst cars of the last year. If you own one of these, I am sorry, Jeremy hates it.
- Vauxhall Astra SRi NAV – “It was red and turbocharged and it would be fine for anyone who needed four wheels and a place to sit down when moving about. And now I’m out of space, which is probably a good thing, because I have nothing else to say about it.”
- Infiniti Q30 Premium Tech – “The diesel engine sounds like a canal boat when it’s cold.”
- Skoda Superb SE L Executive – “At no point when driving a Superb do you think, “Eugh.” But you never think, “Wow”, either. And that’s not good enough.” [Ed. note: who the hell calls a car the “superb?”]
- Zenos E10 S – “The steering became wearing too, because it’s unassisted and very fidgety.”
- Renault Kadjar dCi 130 Signature Nav – “It offers nothing that would make you buy one if you could use a Google car-club vehicle instead. Both are soulless tools. But one is much, much cheaper.”
- BMW X1 xDrive25d – “I suppose that, all things considered, it’s not a bad car. It doesn’t crash all the time, or explode.”
- Seat Leon X-Perience SE Technology – “I’m grateful to Seat for lending me this car because it reinforces every belief I’ve held about Seat’s cars. They’re a waste of time.”
- Nissan GT-R Track Edition – ” This track-day abomination gets no stars at all. Because it’s pretty much useless.”
- Volkswagen Scirocco 2.0 TDI – “As an overall package it did nothing all week except remind me how much I wanted a Golf GTI.”
- Hyundai i800 – “I will never go in one again.”
Haha! Sounds about right for Jeremy. Did any of these choices surprise you? Is your car on the list? Let us hear it!
