From James Riswick of Edmunds:
For those who remember earlier eras, the cars on this “worst” list will seem laughable. They won’t turn to rust at the first sign of rain, spontaneous combustion is improbable and plowing into another car at 40 mph isn’t automatically a death sentence.
Spoiler Alert (the worst 5):
- 2013 Smart Fortwo – worst subcompact car
- 2014 Mitsubishi Lancer – worst compact sedan
- 2014 Dodge Avenger – worst midsize sedan
- 2014 Ford Taurus – worst full-size sedan
- 2014 Lincoln MKS – worst luxury sedan
It goes downhill from there.
