6: Chevy Sprint
Right on the cusp of the new Geo brand being made, there was the Sprint, a compact rebadged Suzuki Swift. While the car had a minuscule price tag, quality was lackluster at best. GM was willing to tarnish their reputation by selling this captive import, while other cars managed to beat it. Chrysler did the same thing with the Plymouth brand and the Colt. The Sprint had some unique features such as a turbocharged version of the car, albeit in quite limited production.
Very few cars have managed to make as little of an impact as the Sprint did. The interesting thing about the Sprint is that it morphed into the Metro. Drivers weren’t exactly sure why GM decided to change the nameplate but the Sprint was the original cheap compact Chevy model. Sadly, it just didn’t fuse with potential consumers.
