7: Euro Effects
The “Euro” trend also hit the automotive industry on all cylinders in the 1990s with cars like the Chevy Celebrity Euro. The trend for making these cars appear sportier was another sales attempt by domestic automakers. Euro styling never fully caught on, although there were a few rare cars with it (via Autoblog).
The Dodge Spirit also attempted this with the R/T model. The Euro treatment is a unique aspect of ’90s car design, but forgettable to say the least. No one wants a car that looks as dated as a Euro model. It is that quintessential 1990s treatment of the past that we know and remember.
