PONTIAC AZTEK (2000)
PONTIAC AZTEK (2000): I admire designers who try something different, but when they produce a car like the Pontiac Aztek, which looks like a bucktoothed dinosaur, I’m not so sure. It has what look like two bonnet lines, gaping grilles, undersized wheels and, in base specification, lots of unpainted plastic – enough to make even the Fiat Multipla gag (SAM SHEEHAN - SENIOR STAFF WRITER). I was present when the wraps came off Pontiac’s eyesore SUV at an LA motor show preview in 2000. With hindsight, the pre-reveal video that concealed GM’s ugly duckling gave a clue that a nasty surprise was coming. But that was nothing compared to the embarrassed silence and nervous shuffling-in-seats as the audience absorbed the full horror unfolding on stage. (JULIAN RENDELL - SPECIAL CORRESPONDENT)
