Just another BS article about nothing. Ben Stewart is another numbnut who writes unworthy garbage. Several of the vehicles shown here are not exactly "boxy", truck versions usually are to an extent and many back in the sixties thru some of the seventies, yes, were boxy as that was the style of the time. You cannot compare none of them to the horrid looking scion or cube. Those are butt ugly and NOT hip.

As usual, you don't know what you are talking about. But, by accident, you got these half right.


That particular BMW in the picture was very stylized compared to real box cars. Why would you even put that car or the RT in this list?


How about the 2 box Plymouh Horizon, the VW Rabbit, the Mini, the Dodge Caravan or the 3 box the Fiat, the Renault or almost all but but first and the latest models of the Honda Civics?

We kept a Volvo 245 wagon going for 16 years. I'd buy another one if they still built it, of course with modern safety features. The 245 had a 4-speed manual and electric overdrive that averaged a fantastic 33 mpg on the highway despite its weight and AWD. That combination took it through snow and mud without complaints and the back end swallowed everything from Christmas trees to a couch. We both really appreciated those nice big rear windows that kept blind spots to a minimum. Volvo's stylists held out for years against whatever unwritten law now requires cars to have ridiculous little upturned glass triangles where real windows should be, but I see even they've given in over the last few years.

Sorry, little correction here, other than both coming out of a Mitsubishi engineering office and having a turbo, the turbo 2.2 has nothing in common with the SRT Neon motor. The 2.2 and it's big brother the 2.5 died at the introduction of the Neon, LX, and cloud cars.

I own a 1989 M3 and LOVE it .... one of the best handling road going cars ever.  I am not surprised that the value of this car is exploding now.
