Designed by a Brit, the Rodius is a vehicle of such cosmic ineptitude that it must surely have been done via pre-Skype in the days of glitching dial-up modems by a team of visually impaired misanthropes. Who signed it off? Can you imagine sitting round the table during that meeting? "Yes, chaps, we've really nailed it this time!" The only thing worse than looking at the Rodius is driving it, as this is a car that visits every possible dynamic flaw upon its luckless occupants, including an unresolved ride, arthritic performance and hysterically awful handling. Indeed, corner hard enough, and the back door may even fly open, such is the Rodius's structural rigidity. Still, it conveniently answers one oft-asked question: yes, there is still such a thing as a genuinely bad car.
