So, it's tough to actually defend the Aztec as it's the punching bag for everyone who does an ugly car list; however,................ Bypassing it's not attractive, it was supposed to be the VW Thing of the '90's. It delivered on the goal. For those that have forgotten, you could wash the interior out with a hose.

The Cube, and rodent cars that followed stole nicely from the concept. All the go-anywhere commercials you see today are the concept it was trying for. Toss in that it didn't have a ton of power (hey, that's mostly what we care about on this site), seats were uncomfortable (which we should mostly be used to), and the entire thing felt a little cheap and it was a disaster.
