Last week we talked about the most underrated car of all time. This week, we are going to talk about the most overrated car of all time. There are cars which aren't as great as some might describe them. There have been many overrated cars, but 'what is the most overrated car of all time?'. Tell us in the comments below.

Can't decide? Worry not, let the lovely Drivetribe community help you by telling their choices.

Tejas Kokcha - McLaren Senna

While many might say that the McLaren Senna deserved the name of Ayrton Senna, I don't agree. I think that this is just a McLaren 720S on steroids. The fact that this car got the 'Senna' name but it overrated. If this car would have been called the '750LT' or something else like that, it wouldn't have been my choice for the most overrated car. I think that the Senna doesn't deserve its name.

"So, I'm nominating a batch of performance Japanese cars from the sort-of 90s and early 00s period. You know, the Skyline GT-Rs, Supras and stuff like that.

The fan bases are ridiculous and often quite toxic, the attention from people on the internet is too much for anyone to handle. And lastly, the fact they're worth more than the exotics they competed against kinda renders them useless in terms of their original purpose (which was to provide supercar-level performance at a more affordable price).

It's almost as if the people who religiously worship these cars have no idea that others exist. Others that are just as capable, if not better! That's why I think they're extremely overrated."

Ronnie Prasad - Kia Stinger

"I'd like to pick the Kia Stinger. People have made a very big deal out of it.

Firstly, the front doesn’t look very appealing. Secondly, you can have an Audi S4 for the price of the stinger as their MSRPs are relatively close.

Thirdly, the badge. Kia isn’t as well renowned as BMW or Jaguar and other similar companies, and them making a sports saloon is kinda cool, but based on the badge, it’s kinda weird seeing this from Kia."

"The Dacia Sandero - boring, and while it might have been a good unassuming underdog, everyone seems to wax about it, which means it's not an underdog; it's celebrated mediocrity."

  • I also agree about the Stinger, but I'll also try to say something about it. Firstly, it's the R34 Skyline GT-R. The fact it appeared in not-a-car-movie doesn't make it a demi-god, and because of that, I hate it very much, that's not about the other versions though, but I'm more of an R33 fan. Secondly - any Ferrari. In fact, it's the most overrated brand in the whole universe. Also there's Tesla - same reason as the brand above. They have terrifically awful build quality, they lie about their "self-driving" system that killed not one person but hundreds of them and they are extremely ugly. I wanna know the reason why people still buy these writeoffs from factory.

    • I agree that Tesla is overrated. They are getting overvalued as @Daniel Berman had written in an article recently. Teslas are seen as environmentally friendly cars that are also very convenient and practical. This is why I absolutely hate...

  • Any Tesla tbh.

    Don't get me wrong: I'm not against electric vehicles per se. Tesla have made them sexy and that's a remarkable feat. They are also among the few EVs that offer an actually useful range.

    However. The build quality is abysmal, the reliability is not great, and there is the fact that Tesla has more or less complete control of a vehicle that's yours now. These points make it a questionable choice in my book, and not necessarily the default choice at all for anyone who would be looking for an EV.

  • The whole point of the whole Kia stinger being underrated was the bade problem u mentioned😂, ppl pick the likes of the rivalling Audi because they dont think Kia goes with 168mph. And yet it does, extremely well too.

    As for the Senna I feel like a '720s on steroids' deserves all the attention it gets.

  • [rant] Any "faster" SUV (plus SUVs in general). All the "SQ" Audis and "MX" Beemers and "AMG" Mercs ob stilts, plus the DBX, plus that shitty Jag, Bentley, the list goes on really... Everybody needs to have one of these in their lineup these days. And every next one manages to be even worse than the one that came before it. What are they even for? "Fastest SUV around Nords" you say? 800+ bhp? Clever suspension that keeps it from rolling too much? WHY? Why would anyone ever think that's something to tout about? If you wanna go fast, there is an endless variety of cars to go for. I fail to see a single use for these rolling dumpsters despite maybe wanting to look a complete garbage human being while driving it. [/rant]
