Clarkson’s Top 5 Worst Cars From 2018
We recently showed you what Jeremy Clarkson chose as his top 5 favourite cars from 2018. But where there are favourites, there are least favourites. So here are his least favourite cars from the past year. And no, it doesn’t include a Porsche.
5. Abarth 695 Rivale
“The 695 convertible is wobbly at speed, bouncy and hard to drive unless you’re used to wearing a thong,” Clarkson said in regard to the tuned Fiat 500. He only scored it 2 out of 5 stars, blaming the stiff suspension, poor chassis and bad driving position.
4. Audi Q8
“It’s a rival for the terrible BMW X6, and that means it’s for people who are mad,” Clarkson said about the German SUV. There are only a couple of SUVs that Jeremy adores, those being the Range Rover and Alfa Romeo Stelvio. This, he definitely didn’t adore, only scoring it 1 star.
3. Dacia Duster
“No one is ever going to drive a Duster smoothly. Or quietly. Or with their dignity intact.” High praise from Clarkson. While James May might not agree, Clarkson definitely made his mind up on this, only scoring it 2 stars.
2. Mini 1499 GT
“It’s hard to think of the right word. But ‘horrible’ is close enough,” Clarkson explained. He disliked the car because the stiff suspension hinted at a performance the Mini simply didn’t have.
1. Volvo V60
“Nothing says your sex life has died more than a Volvo in the driveway,” he says, knowing full well that he has always owned a Volvo himself. He hated the ‘dismal’ diesel engine, but liked the looks of both the interior and exterior.
