The Pontiac Aztek was advertised by Pontiac as the world's
first SRV, or Sport-Recreation Vehicle, a multipurpose
machine designed to support active lifestyles, providing
plenty of space for hauling bicycles, kayaks, snowboards,
skis and other recreational gear.
Unfortunately the Aztek turned into a pretty hideous
design. Its bulky overweight body looks flabby and un-athletic,
the large size completely overwhelms the wheels and
tires. The front end looks far too busy. And the ridiculous
number of tacky looking plastic bolt-on-bits serve to
further undermine the overall design.
Nice idea, but a terrible design.
