Has to be the Omni, which dates back to the year 50 B.C.
It easily Beats even the Amby, which IMHO is at least safe!

Default Is it a car?

I am not willing to accept that Omni can be called a "CAR"?!!

Default trax

In my view Tempo Trax is not a car
the sumo is many times better compared to this design masterpiece

Among the cars i have driven , Omni is significantly the worst - even worser than a 1970s model fiat padmini my dad.

But looks wise ..trax is the worst ..tough to find uglier cars or trucks ..

Never seen this San Storm that seems to have got lot of votes(did it release in south india?)

From proper manufacturers, it has to be the Omni. Totally unsafe and uncomfortable. I dont think it will be allowed to be sold in many countries today.

There should be some basic safety norms for cars in india too..

Wagon R makes me want to rip my hand off, just so that I have something to throw at it. (Courtesy: Friends) It boggles my mind that so many went out and bought it and still buy it. Agreed Substance has to be over Form, but something this Ugly is an insult. And another popular Car, Santro, is not far behind in terms of ugliness.

Just so that Cheap doesn't have to be Ugly, have a look at the ALto, and old Zen. Its all about proportions.
