Fiat Mulipla - to ugly to survive?

One of the most controversial designs of the last 10+ years probably is/was the Fiat Multipla, built between 1999 and 2004. It was quite unique with the lights just below the front screen and with the wheels basically at every corner. Also the six seat configuration was somewhat special. But it was at the same time a pretty practical cars, kids loved the middle seat in the front and the handling of the car was much better than it looked! After all the critic Fiat decided to smoothen the car in 2004 and with this destroyed the design in my eyes. The Mk2 Multipla is just an ordinary car and lacks the uniqueness of the Mk1. I almost had bought one in the early 2000s, but I didn't. I would like to see more brave designs and concepts on the street, just like the Fiat Multipla!
