smart fortwo named most embarrassing car
On sale since 1998, the smart fortwo is not the most beautiful car you can buy. But it's no ugly vehicle and most drivers seem to be quite happy with it, despite its puny size. However, a recent study conducted in the United States ranked the fortwo as the most embarrassing car.
Surprised? Well, just give us a minute to explain, because the survey wasn't just about the looks (we can name at least two dozen vehicles uglier than the smart fortwo). According to Car Insurance, most respondents said the fortwo is embarrassing because of its "too small" size, which also makes it look "unsafe". And to make you understand this survey a little better, one participant said the fortwo "looks like I couldn't afford a real car".

The small German vehicle was followed by the "just plain ugly" Nissan Cube and the "too big" and "immoral" Hummer H2. Other vehicles included in the survey were the Chevrolet SSR, Volkswagen New Beetle, Subaru Baja, Lincoln Town Car, Pontiac Aztek, Plymouth PT Cruiser, Honda Element, Chevrolet HHR and the Nissan Murano Cabriolet.
