The Aztec was not a popular car but it is on this list since it is one of the most memorable Pontiacs ever. Pontiac introduced the Aztek in 2000. It was a good idea, on paper at least. The mid-size crossover model came with sharp new styling, a decent engine lineup and plenty of interior space. It was a modern concept at the time.
Pontiac was eager to present it to the public since the overall sales of the brand were slipping. They thought a new model will boost the popularity of the brand and bring new customers to the dealerships. The plan was sound, except for the design. Somehow, those Pontiac designers managed to draw and push to production one of the ugliest cars they ever made.
Every design component of the car is extremely ugly. In fact, even the interior is questionable. However, over a decade after they stopped producing them, Azteks are popular. This is mostly due to an appearance in the cult TV show, Breaking Bad. Also, the Aztek won many first places in “ugliest car” lists.
