What do you think is the least practical car for a daily driver? I have to say the Ariel Atom. <p>Add your own choices <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/banana.gif" BORDER="0">

The Suzuki X-90; essentially a Vitara with no boot, and Suzuki expected it to be a hit with the Gen-X's as well! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://images.zeroforum.com/smile/emthdown.gif" BORDER="0">

Ariel Atom, it is a Formula car, completely useless for daily needs.

Good thing Toyota didn't discontinue my car **sigh of relief**

The Ariel Atom is a 4-wheeled motorbike. The only practical thing about it is you can carry a case of beer in the passenger seat. <p>Would I have one? Too damn right I would! What a blast.

I guess you need to define what you mean by practical. Is it the ability to carry stuff other than yourself? or is it the ability to engage in real world driving (under normal year-round weather and physical conditions)?

To me, an S2000 is a useless car. You have no space and you have to revv the crap out of it to make any type of power.

Chevy SSR is a heavy truck and therefore all th power it has isn't enough to move the bulk in a decent 0-60 mph time and milage is bad too. Ride/handling is compromise is crappy coz it's a fargin truck. Could have more cargo space for its category. Overall it's garbage.

The 2005 SSR is pretty fast... especially now with the six speed manual.
