9. 2014 Toyota Prius
Take your pick of the original-recipe sedan, the Prius C compact or the Prius V wagon: They're all dowdy little utilitarian vehicles that nobody's buying for their exterior features.
Don't believe us? Ask auto pricing site Edmunds' John Pearley Huffman, who referred to the Prius as “The polliwog of green piety. Efficiency reduced down to the point of ennui.” Yeah, it doesn't get much prettier from there.When discussing the Prius with Forbes in 2012, New York Times automotive writer Lawrence Ulrich noted that customers buy a Prius – the best-selling hybrid in the U.S. – in spite of its looks, not because of them: “It’s as frumpy as any car I’ve seen, like an over-full colostomy bag.” Well, Toyota, it could be worse: The Prius could look like the contents of that colostomy bag. But as long as it's roughly a third of the base price of a Tesla Model S and gets about 50 miles to the gallon, the Prius doesn't mind having its name dragged through the mud ... or worse.
