It’s the most anticipated and highly sought after award of the year. Forget the Oscars. Forget the BBC Sports Personality of the Year. Even forget the Best Pork Sausage of the Year. The one that everyone has been waiting for is the prestigious Shatchback of the Year award. Which automotive afterthought is best deserving of the Golden Boot?
WARNING! THIS BLOG POST CONTAINS MILD HORROR AND IMAGES THAT SOME READERS MIGHT FIND DISTRESSING. THOSE OF A NERVOUS DISPOSITION SHOULD LOOK AWAY NOW. THIS IS THE FIRST TIME ANYONE HAS ATTEMPTED TO SHOW 25 SHATCHBACKS IN ONE PLACE. PETROLBLOG TAKES NO RESPONSIBILITY IF IT BREAKS THE INTERWEB.
In true Celebrity Come Ice Skating, I’m A Failed Z-lister So Get Me In There style, it’s your votes that matter. Which Shatchback has the greatest capacity to make children cry? Which booted horror has the potential to make you sick? In short, which is the most hideous Shatchback ever to appear on PetrolBlog?
A total of 27 Shatchbacks have graced the pages of PetrolBlog since July 2010, but following a small cull, you can choose from 25. The reason being is that the Maruti Dzire and Suzuki Swift have done a Dagenham & Redbridge to form a partnership. Also, with apologies to Tim, I’ve removed the Vauxhall Chevette from the voting. It’s just not fair to place the rear-wheel drive retro hero alongside the modern horror stories.
If you need a reminder of the terrifying images that have ‘graced’ PetrolBlog over the past 17 months, here are the six Shatchback episodes:

So, as Noel Edmonds might say – 25 hideous boxes, one Golden Boot and one question – vote or no vote.
