The new Fiesta was a tragedy both in the way it looked and the numbers it sold while the old Fiesta was a hit. The headlamps on the new one looked horrendous and i better not talk about the tail lamps.

Hehe, i agree that holds good for the Pajero Sport, and probably for the Pajero from Gen 2 to Gen3. However, Gen 4 of the Pajero is more toned down and stays true to the original styling cues.

As few have already commented, for me it has to be the Fiesta (now Classic) and the new Fiesta. The new one was a disaster, the engine was downsized, and tuned for a better fuel economy, killing the fun factor for which it was known for. They added many features in the new one, not realizing that the Fiesta is known for its ride, handling and driving dynamics. Ford just klilled the new Fiesta. I was involved in a comparo for an online portal and I immediately let them know my feedback that "I am NOT going to upgrade". Here is the link of that article, and the car used for the photoshoot is actually my car

The upcoming Hyundai Creta/ix25 showcased recently looks absolutely horrendous from the outside. The current gen looks handsome IMO.

I think, all missed Xcent and Accent. I think Accent is a much better looker than Xcent:

Nex-gen Accent is Verna, not Xcent. Xcent is a boot-pasted version of Grand I10. And Verna definately look much better than the Accent.

No one missed it, it wasn't there to begin with. The Accent was later renamed to Verna (It was sold under Verna name in Korea and Accent in ROW if i'm not wrong) and the Xcent is a Grand i10 with a boot!!

And the current gen drives much better than the earlier gens as well.

How can one neglect the fact that Hyundai messed up the rear of i20 in its latest iteration! Cruelty to that classy rear.

The Honda seems to have mastered this. The CRV, the Civic(arguably?!), the City, the Jazz. Alas, they missed the trick with the Amaze.

The first thing to come to my mind reading the thread was the CBZ, and an earlier post with the pic comparing it to the Extreme happens to be the CBZ Star, which IMHO was a bad bad successor to the original CBZ. Splendor anyone?

And to my utter surprise the Fortuner makes such late entry to the post!

Being a hardcore fan of Tata Safari and Civic, their new models were a terrible disappointment.. The majestic 2.2 dicor turned into a pussycat with storme.. Also the civic, when launched in India in 2006, I was sold in one look at it.. Now having one too and when I went to service station they told me to test drive new civic.. but just by looking at it, I want to run away.. The car lost its identity inside and outside.. Interior is same as their low end cars and exterior looked like someone sat on amaze.. don't know why all brands are now going after same design and interiors for all models.. cars are loosing their uniqueness now..

oh and that new WagonR and Santro
