Jalopnik did another survey, this time was the ten cutest car ever made. I cannot fully agree with some of them. Like Peel P50, that’s not cute… just dangerous (Top Gear).
10.) Fiat Jolly
Everyone knows the super-cute original Fiat 500, but there was an even cuter version, the Jolly. Built for hot-weather beach bums, it’s like they made the seats out of picnic baskets. We want one full of puppies.
9.) Austin-Healey Sprite
The ‘Frogeye’ Sprite has one of the happiest faces in all of motordom, but what hard to see in pictures is just how tiny these things are. You can pretty much stuff them in your pocket.
8.) Peel P50
Smaller still is the world’s littlest car, the Peel P50. You can drive these things right into office buildings they’re so small. And look at its little front wheels, poking out like an angry Dachshund!
7.) Autobianchi Bianchina/Nissan Figaro
The Autobianchi Bianchina took the underpinnings of the Fiat 500 and made them even cuter. It hurts to look at for too long because my brain starts to melt. A dead-ringer for the ‘60s Bianchina was the very retro Nissan Figaro of the ‘90s, which also makes my heart weep with joy.
6.) Geely Panda
The award for cutest car in production today goes to the Geely Panda because holy crap it looks like a panda and I want to feed it bamboo and read it bedtime stories.
5.) Nissan S-Cargo
Another one of Nissan’s retro follies was the S-Cargo van. It’s got the same little face as the other cars on this list, but a bulky body for moving stuff. That makes the S-Cargo look something like a super chubby baby seal, all smiley face and pudgy butt. Practicality is the new cute.
4.) P. Vallee Chantecler
It’s hard to get cuter than the “bubble cars” made after WWII. The Paul Vallee Chantecler has all of five horsepower and is as close as you can get to driving around in an egg.
3.) Meadows Frisky Friskysport
This little British (and sometimes Egyptian) charmer clearly wins the award for the cutest name in the car world. Friskysport!
2.) Mazda Porter Cab
Japan’s little Kei-cars are cute, but even cuter are their kei vans and pickups! You could probably fit a whole potted plant in the back of this ‘60s Mazda, which would probably struggle up hills like the little engine that could.
1.) A Dune Buggy
The Meyers Manx is about as adorable as a car can be. It’s got a happy face, it’s shaped like a baby pug, and it jumps like a puppy. You can’t beat a car built for running around in the dirt and jumping stuff.
Do you agree with this list?
