The 10 ugliest cars of 2013

From ugly to ugliest, here are Bankrate's picks for the 10 ugliest cars of 2013. Price stats belong to TotalCarScore.com, and mpg estimates come from FuelEconomy.gov. For those makes with more than one model option, we chose the base model to feature.

Subaru Impreza

Price range: $17,895-$29,295
Mileage: 27 mpg city/36 mpg highway

If roads could talk, they would yell to drivers of these cars to never leave the house without a paper bag over their heads.

Kia Soul

Price range: $14,400-$19,900
Mileage: 25 mpg city/30 mpg highway

There's a reason hamsters star in the Soul's TV commercials. No human being should ever be seen operating this eyesore.

Lincoln MKZ

Price range: $35,925-$39,045
Mileage: 22 mpg city/31 mpg highway

What's up with this car's grille? It looks like Lincoln wanted to appeal more to Harvey Birdman than everyday drivers.

Hyundai Veloster

Price range: $17,450-$22,950
Mileage: 28 mpg city/37 mpg highway

Sorry, Hyundai, you lost several cool points for this one. Next time, finish designing the back of a vehicle before placing it in a dealer's showroom.

Fiat 500

Price range: $16,000-$22,500
Mileage: 27 mpg city/34 mpg highway

"Small" is not synonymous to "cute." The Fiat 500 looks like a bug that someone tried to squish but didn't finish the job.

Ford C-Max Hybrid

Price range: $25,200-$32,950
Mileage: 45 mpg city/40 mpg highway

The only thing sexy about this car is its fuel economy. Otherwise, hang your head in shame if it was ever on your list of possible purchases.

Smart fortwo coupe

Price range: $12,490-$14,890 (FuelEconomy.gov)
Mileage: 34 mpg city/38 mpg highway

Why would you want to buy a car that looks like it will topple over if you sneeze in its direction?

Toyota Prius Hybrid

Price range: $24,200-$39,525
Mileage: 51 mpg city/48 mpg highway

When you decide to become an eco-friendly driver, keep in mind you give up style in the process.

Nissan Cube

Price range: $16,760-$18,860
Mileage: 27 mpg city/31 mpg highway

If the Kia Soul is the car of the hamsters, guinea pigs can definitely claim this one.

Honda CR-Z Hybrid

Price range: $19,975-$23,805 (FuelEconomy.gov)
Mileage: 36 mpg city/39 mpg highway

Honda was clearly going for an aardvark look with this car's design. There's no other explanation for its disfigurement.
