    I was stuck behind an old Suzuki Swift earlier in traffic, and was just thinking "god, that looks old, they certainly look a lot better now"

    at this point i hadn't clocked the number plate to say how old it was, but from the shape, and colour and just how it looked i assumed it was a car from the mid 90's.

    when i looked down to the number plate i was shocked to see it was only 10 years old! it honestly wouldn't have looked out of place in the 80's.

    i will try and upload a pic of one later, but a quick google will reveal what i mean.

    what other cars do you think have not aged well in the last 5-10 years?

    I think it's mainly the Japanese and South Korean cars that have aged most.

    New beetle is right given the KIA of old used old cars as their new ones which meant they we old hat eg corsa b tech when the corsa c was out.

    KIA magentis is a good example.

    If you look at any Kia prior to Peter Schreyer joining them, they look ancient.
    The Kia Sportage is the biggest difference, the model before the current one looks woeful, despite only being 3 years old.
