20 Cars Only A Jerk Will Drive In 2020

What’s the worst car that you could bring into 2020? For starters, there’s the 2019 Fiat 500L into 2020. Forbes reports, “This small wagon offers a novel design that affords a roomy cabin and terrific outward visibility, but it otherwise comes up short. Consumer Reports gives the 500L the lowest overall rating among compact cars and cites it is as being among the worst vehicles of the year.”

Then, there’s any Chrysler Sebring Convertible. The Drive reports, “Jeremy Clarkson once called the Sebring 'the worst car in the world.' My late mother, who knew a lot less about cars than Clarkson and liked them even less than I do, switched to driving a Volkswagen Passat after Chrysler discontinued her beloved LeBaron convertible and replaced it with the Sebring.”

The 2018 Nissan Armada is also one car you’d be a jerk to bring into 2020. Drive Mag adds, “Nissan’s supersized SUV is the thirstiest of the bunch, according to CR (excluding heavy-duty pickup trucks). This appetite for fuel chips away at some of the Armada’s strong areas, such as the quiet cabin and smooth powertrain. However, CR’s ratings saw the Armada return just 14 mpg overall, which gets it the Worst Fuel Economy award.”

Here are the 20 cars only a jerk will drive in 2020.

“It’s far outclassed by what’s become an impressive assortment of people movers. Consumer Reports rates it rock bottom for reliability and cites it as among its 'least satisfying' models. It also gets low scores from JD Power for initial quality and overall performance.” Forbes states. This is a car only a jerk will drive in 2020.

Only a jerk would drive the 2018 Ford Fiesta ST into 2020. Drive Mag reports, “Surprisingly, Ford’s nimble Fiesta ST didn’t seem to please the kidneys of CR’s testers, who found the ride very uncomfortable, fidgety and snappy even on apparently smooth roads. Therefore, it gets the Worst Ride tag.”

17 2017 Mitsubishi i-MiEV

The 2017 Mitsubishi i-MiEV is one of the worst cars to drive. Auto Guide adds, “In a world where the Tesla Model S and even the Nissan Leaf have improved substantially since they were first introduced, the i-MiEV has kept along with its mediocre performance. It’s slow to charge and only gets an EPA-rated 62 miles.”

16 2017 Chrysler 200

“Consumer Reports says the Chrysler 200 'drives like it’s from a previous era,' adding that the handling is clumsy and the ride is unsettled.

“Despite being an industrious car, the Chevy Silverado 2500 was rated with the lowest score during the accident avoidance maneuver on the rapid lane-change course. So at speeds of over 43.5 mph, if the driver has to swerve to avoid a dangerous situation, the Silverado 2500 will most likely roll over,” Drive Mag states. This is a car only a jerk will drive in 2020.

Only a jerk would drive the 2019 Land Rover Discovery Sport into 2020. Forbes reports, “While the Land Rover Discovery Sport is handsome looking, with a particularly appealing interior and decent off-road chops, it falls short compared to its European rivals among compact luxury SUVs. It gets low marks for reliability from both Consumer Reports and JD Power, with CR giving it a dismal overall rating, citing its sub-par overall acceleration and handling abilities.”

8 2019 Mitsubishi Mirage

The 2019 Mitsubishi Mirage is one of the worst cars to drive, according to Consumer Reports. Forbes adds, “There’s little to like about the subcompact Mitsubishi Mirage other than an affordable price tag. It’s slow, noisy, and unrefined compared to most other small cars. JD Power gives it sub-par scores for both reliability and initial quality, and Consumer Reports pegs it as the lowest-rated vehicle in its class.”

7 2019 Nissan Titan XD

“The heavy-duty version of Nissan’s full-size Titan pickup truck sells in only minute numbers, and though it’s capable, comfortable, and drives well enough for its size and weight, the domestic-brands’ biggest trucks beat it in terms of its critical towing and hauling capacities. Consumer Reports gives it a low overall score and predicts poor reliability down the road. CR ranks it among the worst vehicles of the year,” Forbes states. This is a car only a jerk will drive in 2020.

6 Any Chrysler Sebring Convertible

3 2019 Smart EQ ForTwo

Only a jerk would drive the 2019 Smart EQ ForTwo into 2020. Forbes reports, “While it’s cleverly styled and is the cheapest EV you can buy, its two-seat interior is cramped, there’s little in the way of cargo space, and highway driving can be unnerving. Worse, the ForTwo’s operating range on a charge is feeble, at an anxiety-inducing 58 miles.”

2 2019 Subaru WRX

motor1.com

The 2019 Subaru WRX is one of the worst cars to drive according to Consumer Reports. Forbes adds, “It’s also pricey, especially in its top STI versions. Consumer Reports gives it a low overall rating among sports cars. It gets poor ratings for reliability from both CR and JD Power, with the latter ranking it below average for initial quality.”

1 2013 Dodge Dart

en.wikipedia.org

“A few interchangeable GMC monsters aside, this compact, an early offering from the merged Fiat-Chrysler group, was the worst new car I’ve driven in my dumb life as an automotive journalist. From the cheap canvas seats to the anemic 6-speed transmission to the antediluvian design, the Dart hearkened back to an era when tiny cars tormented large men with their tight bucket seats,” The Drive states. This is a car only a jerk will drive in 2020.
