We assembled a panel of 17, combining people with journalistic experience, automotive passion, and feel for style.
The rules ... simple. The vehicles had to be 1.) 2014 models; 2.) for sale in Canada; and 3.) intended for passenger use versus commercial delivery. Each panelist submitted 10 vehicles deemed to be the ugliest, loveable and otherwise. We counted those votes on a 10, 9, 8 basis.
*Full disclosure: Preliminary tabulations placed the Cube in the Top 10, however the manufacturer pulled it from the Canadian market this year.
