15. BMW 116d E87
When BMW introduced the 1-Series model in the early 2000s, fans were very intrigued. All of a sudden, there was a smaller, cheaper BMW but with all signature features like precision steering and a RWD chassis. Even though most models were fantastic to drive, some were downright disappointing (via BMW Blog).
One of them was 116d, an entry-level model powered by a small, four-cylinder diesel unit. With just 114 HP on tap, this model was painfully slow to drive and lacked any real excitement or feel. Even though it sold reasonably well in Europe, it wasn’t what BMW fans wanted.
