Cars are both emotion and mass-produced products. Car manufacturers mostly want to play it safe, and that counts also for its buyers. Most of us prefer to drive a gray Corolla or a black Golf. Or a meaningless SUV…

Still, even today, there are cars made that are a bit different. You may not always see them on the roads, but kudos to the car brands that make it. Kudos to Toyota’s CEO, Akio Toyoda, who said: “no more boring cars”.

Top 10

1. BMW i3

2. Chrysler PT Cruiser

3. Citroën C4 Cactus

4. Daihatsu Move

5. Fiat Multipla

6. Honda E

7. Kia Soul

8. Renault Vel Satis

9. Opel Rocks-e

10. Toyota Aigo-X


These cars make our streets a less boring place. And gives us something to talk about on a birthday. The above is my top10, there are of course other cars with character who just missed the list like Fiat Qubo, Ford Ka, Ford Mustang-E, Honda Civic, Honda C-RZ, Nissan leaf, Opel Adam, Peugeot 1007, Peugeot RCZ, Renault Twizzy, SsangYong Korando, Smart Roadster
Tesla Cybertruck, Toyota C-HR, Toyota Bz4x and Volvo C30.

Happy driving!
