9 Not So Good Cars Launched In India In 2020 | The Bad Ones

What are the cars that can be infamously crowned as the worst cars of 2020?

No car wants to be on that list. Period.

Whenever a manufacturer launches a car, they surely not want their cars to be listed on a list no one wants to be in.

While 2020 gave us some amazing automotive machines, there were some that underwhelmed many enthusiasts. Some of them lacked good design sense, while some decided to completely ignore the basic safety considerations.

So, when we had to list down a number of cars that weren’t able to perform the way they should have, there are certain names that pop in our head.

Keeping all our inhibitions aside, let us begin. Here are some cars launched in 2020 that were not able to keep up with a lot of expectations.

  1. 2020 5th-Gen Honda City

    Hear us out before you form any opinions. Honda City has been one of the best selling sedans of the country.

    However, the sudden design change isn’t something that City fanboys were expecting. It surely seems like something that wasn’t called for. The car’s distinct headlamps made it stand out from Amaze and even the Civic. Its new design is the reason it features in our list of not so good cars launched in 2020.

    Keeping that fact in mind, Honda hasn’t discontinued the previous generation Honda City. Hence, Honda City is one paradox for us.

  2. Toyota Urban Cruiser

    The Vitara Brezza errr…. the Toyota Urban Cruiser isn’t something new and/or innovative. A cross-badging initiative between Toyota and Maruti Suzuki. That’s it. While Toyota has tried changing a few aspects on the outside, it doesn’t seem enough.

    It features on our list due to the fact that there’s nothing new that it tends to offer to the customers.

  3. Renault Duster 2020

    When Renault said they were going to bring in a facelift of the Renault Duster for the Indian markets, our first expectation was the Dacia Duster coming to India.

    However, Renault did disappoint it’s Indian fans a little when it went ahead with some minor changes on the current selling version of the Renault Duster than the Dacia version.

    Although, when it comes to versions and the features, the Renault Duster isn’t far behind. So without being so harsh, let’s not justify the car being one of the not so good cars of 2020

  4. 2020 Honda Jazz Facelift

    The Honda Jazz Facelift 2020 has one sore point that it gains from its previous generations- price. The same thing stands true for the Honda Jazz 2020. At prices starting fro ₹7.5 lakhs, it surely is a tad bit expensive for a hatchback against its competitors

  5. Skoda Karoq

    The Skoda Karoq is a car that many of us want but won’t go for. It does look good, has an amazing ride quality, secured a 5 star NCAP rating.

    However, at ₹24.99 lakhs you might even think more than twice before going for the Skoda Karoq. With the T-Roc around, the Karoq fears a constant underselling threat.

  6. Toyota Innova Crysta Facelift

    One of the bestselling MPVs featured in the list? Well, yes. The Innova brand has been the golden goose case for Toyota in India. While Toyota tends to continue the brand, the facelift and upgrades seem minimal and unnecessary at times.

    I mean asking upwards of 70k just for upgrading the system with Androids Auto and Apple CarPlay is not justified. You can do better Toyota!

  7. 2020 Maruti Suzuki Dzire Facelift

    One more case of unnecessary facelift branding. While the car has received some changes here and there, and a new engine which makes it more refined and pepper, the car seems a little underwhelming otherwise.

  8. Hyundai Venue IMT

    The Hyundai Venue IMT is a car which seems to be something that aims at disrupting industry norms. While Hyundai tried its best to launch the IMT gearbox, the response to the same shows a different story.

    While the gearbox is a new innovation, there are some complications and a few cases of delayed power delivery that takes the enthusiasm away from driving it.

    Get this, It’s an automatic, but it has a 6-speed gear lever. It doesn’t tell gel with me

  9. Honda WR-V Facelift 2020

    Honda came up with the 2020 W-RV facelift, compiling to the BS6 norms. However, a few things led us to add it in the list of worst cars of 2020. The Japanese automaker decided to shed away from the automatic transmission for the facelift version of the W-RV.

    Whereas, another issue is the pricing of the W-RV. While it tends to compete with the Tata Nexon, Vitara Brezza and more, the pricing seems to be a little on the premium end.

Conclusion | Worst Cars of 2020?

So this was a list of some of the cars which were launched in the year 2020 but lacked a little punch. So, are they the worst of the cars?

Well, definitely not.

All of these cars are some great pieces of automotive machinery but tend to miss on one department or the other.

  1. Hi,
    I would like to know if GoMechanic is coming to Trivandrum.
    I know this is a little off-topic. 🙂

    PS:I really appreciate the great content in this blog.

  2. disappointing article! Your list of worst cars is based on just a few aspects: whether something is similar to any other car, whether some design is impressive or not!!

    Do you really think thats how you should judge the worst cars? No view on performance/safety/features?

    Dont mislead consumers.
