2009 Concept Cars

You might be well aware of the best concept models o the previous year because they received a true honor from the customers as well as the auto markets but among those champions there were also some unfortunate models as well who failed to get a good response and behind some of those models this reason can be given that their developers individually released those models without waiting for any big event. We must accept this fact that not all of the concepts cars come to be the showstoppers and sometimes the concepts crashes to the ground instead o getting the great heights. In this article 5 worst concept cars of the previous year have been discussed so lets have a look.

1. Mercedes-Benz Vision GLK

This is one of the latest concepts of SUV by Mercedes and almost everyone belonging to the auto market is surprised to see the concept, why the company brought another SUV concept while they were ahead after launching the GL in anyone’s guess. The style of the model is not very extra ordinary and the big wheels demand the attention of viewer along with being a bit out of place. The model thus doesn’t have anything extra ordinary and this midsized model’s concept may not come to be a blaster.

2. Volkswagen Routan

Volkswagen has got a very great history of developing small vans that not only brings space and comfort but the luxury as well which is the main focus of some of its model but bringing this new concept o Routan doesn’t seems to be a very intelligent move from the company’s side. This concept if compared with other models from different companies doesn’t look very extra ordinary in fact there are some earlier models which are even better than this new one. The overall styling of this model is complete dodge with some of the features purely provided in the Volks style like the headlights. Some of the annoying things in its interior are the cheap looking switchgear and the design as straight outta Motown.

3. Fisker Hybrid

Fisker also has got the great reputation or developing some really awesome models but this one fails to prove very lucky for the company. Being a hybrid car it gets the attention of users but the designing fails to attract viewers towards it. This concept is claimed to be totally unique, and it is but an unfortunate one along with that, the strange nose with too high grills seems quite odd or this sedan and with that the midsection is too low which thus fails to give a balanced look to the styling. Being a hybrid car will surely look great or the company but the styling can come in the way o its success.

4. Audi Cross Cabriolet Quattro

This is another worst concept car of the previous year which fails to attract the maximum amount o viewers and the mistake is undoubtedly again in the styling, it seems that the developers have put on the SUV designing trends on this car. The powerful muscular body was quite OK for the Jeep Weangler but for this upscale car it seems quite horrible. The capabilities of this car are undoubtedly quite fine but when you come to the styling, you come to see the blend of SUV with a stylish midsized sedan which really not seems impressive.

5. Hummer HX

This is another model that should be called as the worst concept o the previous year which was unable to attract people towards its muscular style and body. This concept seems to be almost similar to that of Toyota FJ Jeep and the difference can be only in the performance. The size of this new concept has been made smaller as compared to the earlier models and some other features are removable doors, light weight seats, same macho styling which is the hummer’s tradition and others. This model is also not lucky because the public’s love affair with jumbo sized SUVs has vanished due to increased gas prices.

These were some of the concept cars which became unsuccessful in the starting of their career and the main issue was the styling and somehow capabilities.
