A little over a week ago Jeremy Clarkson presented us with his favorite cars of 2015 and 2016. These cars ranged from the Lamborghini Aventador to a Vauxhall minivan. Today, he’s presented us with what are, in his opinion, the worst cars of 2015 and 2016.

In this latest article on Driving.co.uk, Clarkson goes on to say that the best car you could buy is the Volkswagen Golf, no matter your situation. He notes that its cars like the Golf bring more to the table than a car that just steers, drives and stops. Of course there will always be those cars that are nothing more than “a box,” according to Clarkson. Below are the cars from 2015-2016 that he deems “the terrible 10.”

  • Vauxhall Astra SRi NAV – “It was red and turbocharged and it would be fine for anyone who needed four wheels and a place to sit down when moving about. And now I’m out of space, which is probably a good thing, because I have nothing else to say about it.”
  • Infiniti Q30 Premium Tech – Every time I pulled out to overtake a caravan, I had to pull in again because there wasn’t quite enough grunt. So, all things considered, that’s not fine.”
  • Skoda Superb SE L Executive – “At no point when driving a Superb do you think, “Eugh.” But you never think, “Wow”, either. And that’s not good enough.”
  • Zenos E10 S“On the road, where I mostly drove it, the noise was fun for about a minute and then not fun at all.”
  • Renault Kadjar dCi 130 Signature Nav “It offers nothing that would make you buy one if you could use a Google car-club vehicle instead. Both are soulless tools. But one is much, much cheaper.”
  • BMW X1 xDrive25d “But because it says BMW on the back, and because you know just how good BMWs can be, you expect something better.”
  • Seat Leon X-Perience SE Technology“I’m grateful to Seat for lending me this car because it reinforces every belief I’ve held about Seat’s cars. They’re a waste of time.”
  • Nissan GT-R Track Edition  “The standard GT-R is a five-star car. It is one of the best cars in the world. And yet this track-day abomination gets no stars at all. Because it’s pretty much useless.” (2014 edition pictured above)
  • Volkswagen Scirocco 2.0 TDI  “As an overall package it did nothing all week except remind me how much I wanted a Golf GTI.”
  • Hyundai i800 “I will never go in one again.”
