And the 2012 Rusty Award goes to........
2012 saw the introduction of one the worst designs of the past, try to redeem itself with a makeover. Unfortunately the rest of the marketplace is moving up the design latter and for 2012 the new Nissan Versa still came in short. Although the design has improved upon itself from the last generation, the 2012 Nissan Versa still had a long way to go to be top of its class in the sub-compact segment.
As usual the bottom end of our list was still mostly made up of hatchbacks, vans and alternative fuel vehicles. It seems that these marketplaces are improving, as their marks are moving in an upward trend. But with an average score of nearly 39%, the bottom of our list is not improving enough.
With the addition of the Aftermarket and Sports-GT segments for 2012, it seems that not everyone is getting the point about improving their designs. Guess, we will just have to see what 2013 has in store for us,
