    As cars switch from one generation to the next, you can expect them to undergo a number of changes. From design refreshes (both inside and out), along with likely engine & performance updates, any new generation will certainly see a transformation compared to older models.
    The problem is, these changes aren’t always for the better! And in some cases, the latest generation of cars can actually RUIN the great reputation the predecessor had built!
    With that in mind, we’ve done our research and found the ten cars which shattered the popularity of their predecessor. Hatchbacks, sports cars and electric cars - they’re all included! The question is, have you ever been unfortunate to buy one of the cars in our list? Let us know in the comments!

      Surely the worst engine in the mk5 golf gti was the 2.0 petrol? 115bhp and only had 10 more hp than the 1.6 😅

    2. Matthew Smith

      Golf 8 is far worse than all other generations

    3. sali man

      my MS75 facelifted is 67 plate and I have free supercharging for life

    4. sam

      The mk4 Golf diesel GTI was 150bhp. They also done a 1.8T petrol GTI with 150bhp aswell as a 1.8t petrol GTI with 180bhp. The flop was the 2.0 naturally aspirated petrol GTI which had 115bhp.

      Excellent list......... the base h-6 boxster was one of best driving cars of all time. It was that good. In 2013. I almost purchased one. I loved the last gen manual Celica. It only weighed 2500 pounds almost 500 pounds lighter than its Predecessor. It had excellent steering , gearbox and you could be 6.6 feet tall and drive one. The base GT. Was more fun to drive in the real world than the high Revving gts. The base Celica was an 300,000 mile car. .

      Nothing says "don't buy it" like a car appearing in a Fast and Furious film. Unless you're eight.

      Matt was lucky when i was going to say what do you mean the tesla model s and yeah

    12. Devasena Reddy

      I can name a sedan with a naturally aspirated V10 the BMW m6

    13. Lemar Griffiths Garcia

      Can you do a video that is the opposite of this one terrible cars that got better

    14. Nathan Long

      The new Celica is my favorite thanks to the fact that it has more after market appeal than it's rally predacessor.

    17. gurp123

      Surely Toyota MR2 should be in the list!!! Mark 2 > Mark 3........mark 3 looked absolutely hideous.

    18. Nurlan Babayev

      maserati quattroporte gts 4.7 is much better than the current version

    19. Tom Hughes

      Completely disagree with the EP3 vs FN2 argument. Yes, the EP3 could be more fun around a track... But the FN2 is a comfortable (ish!) daily driver with a very good chassis. My FN2 (LSD upgraded) sticks like glue on even the wettest of roads and has never once made me question it's suspension setup. IMO (which may be different to yours!) the FN2 looks far better than the EP3 and the interior is a much more modern place to be.

      What new cars are worse than their predecessors? Yes.

    22. Jeffrey Cormier

      718 cayman: faster, better chassis, better interior, better handling, better steering BuT iT sOuNdS wOrSe so it must be a worse car. Come on man. Also, never hear you guys Rev up the 2.5 with sports exhaust.

    23. الحقيقة

      If you’re watching this video I hope you get this car and achieve all of your dreams

    24. Flynn - Roblox

      Hey Mat, I’m an aspiring motor journalist and I need help knowing where to get the background videos for these voice over videos?

    25. Nedson

      What! 21 is a greater number than 20 therefore a car made in 2021 is better, that's why millions of people buy the brand new model. Is this some kind of misconceptions??? 😂 They know not what they do.

    26. Chris M

      Model S.. Yes the old one gets free power, but its also horribly unreliable and built like someone from the 80s Yugoslavia tried to make a Morris Marina, from plastic cups and horse glue. The build quality its just horrible. At least the quality on the newest ones is only a bit poor.

    27. P GR

      E60 M5 with a manual is god. Assuming you have the money to keep the thing in fine fettle, which yearly is probably about 25 percent of the total value of the car these days lol

    28. Yu Wang


    29. mandel eli

      The new golf R no longer has a 3 paddle option, which is a shame really! I'll have the GTI with the manual thank you

    30. Reece Drury

      Mk4 golf GTi. Wasnt the 115bhp version a 2.0 8v petrol?

    31. A D

      Porsche 718

    32. Collin Ramphal

      I never noticed before that Matt is slightly crosseyed before.

    33. Nikos Liolios

      do an rx8 matt

    34. Lucio Colombo

      MK4 GTi is my fav generation of all tho

    35. Alfie’s models and technology

      This isn’t a hate comment but I hate that he pronounces Tesla like tezla. It sounds a little bit cool but It’s pronounced Tesla

    36. Paul Inman

      Wasn't the Civic horsepower 197 vs 198?

    37. AngusNZ

      Looks is purely personal I imagine your mrs thinks you look ok but what about our opinion? 😂

    38. D.E. Sarcarean

      Also, the older Model S had a huge, and I mean HUGE, front truck. So large, you can fit an entire person in it (yes, there are videos on YT).

    39. Sava

      Golf 7.5 > 8

    40. Cameron Burch

      I thought for sure he'd compare the Evolution 8 vs the X. The Evo X effectively killed the car 😭

    41. Jeff Allen

      What about the golf 150pd?

    42. Zayd Ayyoub

      You missed one. The 2020 Ferrari F1 car was way worse than the 2019 and even slower than the 2018 F1 Ferrari

    43. EV or not EV that is the question for my next ride

      Free isn’t really free. The original Model S was a lot more expensive (inflation adjusted) to buy in 2012 than now. So, what was free really wasn’t free.

    44. TheTopgeartv

      MK4 115bhp GTI was petrol not diesel. It was a non turbo. Very poor car knowledge Mat.

    45. DersNoNem

      I thought he was talking about Eclipse turned into SUV

    46. Øystein Espedal

      Honestly, Mat. That thumbnail and whole Tesla point was such a cheap, dishonest clickbaity thing to do. I expected better from you, mate. Unsubscribing.

    47. A L

      Don't know much abt cars but I think this should have made the list. The older Toyota supras were better than the new BMW supra.

      Matt- lets see these new cars that were WORSE than their predecessors Intro- shows bmws Me- yeah sounds about right

    50. Pop Jones

      a bit misleading title to be honest, almost all these cars on ur list the new versions were infact BETTER cars in almost every way, apart from some subjective thoughts about the exhaust notes etc etc

    51. Robert Borjesson

      Land Rover Disco is also those kind of cars.

      Mustang was never a muscle car. It was a sporty car. Musclecar was just the top of the range "shelby ###" The same goes for the others that had a basic version and then the top performance musclecar .. On the tesla they did the calculations and the free recharging isn't adding up to much of a sum. Because all smart EVowners do their chargin at home and supercharge on rare ocasions, for long trips.

      Literally every car released past 1972 that was a successor to an earlier car was worse.

      Peugot 206 was way worse to drive then the 205 (though the 205 was lethal on tarmac - it swhitched between understeer and oversteer in an instant and quite unpredictally. On gravel, on the other hand, it was dead easy to hold just on the right side of the line. And yeah, I done lots of stupid things in the 205 in my youth). Mercedes E-class (201) was a catastrophe compared to the legend 124. Mercedes gave a 30 years "guarantee against rust" at the same time they stopped any and all efforts to proof against said rust. That almost sunk the brand into oblivion, and cost them billions. Volvo 90-series is a joke for practicality compared to the old Volvo V70. BMW in general has become increasingly boring to drive for 15 years or so. The Citroen XM was simply off compared to the old Citroen CX. I am not sure the Toyota Auris was any better then the outgoing Toyota Corolla.

    74. Kauri Leka

      No sane person would buy the new AMG-cars, no matter how fast they are. I bet that car reviewers will drive it with a face you make after smelling some rotten eggs

    75. geoffk777

      You're right about the BMW M5, but you got the wrong models. The E39 M5 was an instant classic with beautiful styling, a powerful V8 and a great interior and manual gearbox. To this day, many regard it as BMW's finest M5 ever. The E60 which replaced it had a horrible iDrive system, unusable SMG transmission, self-destructing engine and hideous styling. It was and remains a huge disappointment. Nobody should have been surprised, though, as the equally classic and beautiful E38 7 Series had been replaced earlier with the horrible, ugly E65 model. It was the end of a great era for BMW, and their cars have never been desirable since then.

    76. C Sheridan

      The tdi mk4 golf was 130 or 150 bhp The shit 115 bhp model was a 2.0petrol

    77. Rimelight

      I'm surprised he went with that Eclipse 3rd Gen and not the Eclipse Cross.

    78. Christiaan Offerhaus

      You are obsessed with 'performance' cars.

    79. F C

      You should’ve included the entire BMW/MINI lineup. The Fxx MINI models are absolute trash compared to their predecessors. Not only does the 2.0T B48 engine in the S and JCW feel completely underwhelming, it also sounds like crap because they muffled all the real noises and piped in BMW’s horrific nasally warble. Then there’s the entire design of the car. The thing was beaten to death with the ugly stick. From the fish mouth grille, too tall hood line with odd looking headlights, to the comically oversized taillights, the thing is just hideous. I also think they ruined the interior. It lost all its charm and no F5x I’ve ever driven has been remotely as fun to drive as the old R53/R56 S/JCW. The same thing happened at BMW with the 3-series. They went from the brilliant E9x 3-series and literally shat out the F30 as a replacement. What the hell were they thinking? Whereas the E90/92 3-series felt like a proper driver’s car and well built, the F30 felt like a Toyota Corolla in both the way it drove and it’s cheap feeling interior. The G20 has done a little bit better job than the F30, but it’s still nowhere close to being as fun to drive as the old E9x 335i or V8-powered M3. Both MINI Cooper hatch and 3-series are two cars that definitely should’ve been on the list!

      Besides the looks and downsizing of the car -- Mustang II was actually a sucess. Sure it had a "pinto" 2.3 which was quite a nice engine -- in it's European variant (1.3 1.6 (1.8) and mainly 2.0 - powered such cars as Cortina/Taunus, Capri, RS Escort Mk1 & Mk2, Transit, Granada (also TVR Tasmin) -> next the Sierra and Scorpio-> including a base for the 2.0 Cosworth Turbo engine (1985) or the Mk2 Escort Xpack with 145 HP (that is more than 5.0 Mustang from mid 70s) And it sold well 1972 they've made 126 thousand Mustangs 1973 they've made 134 thousand in 1974 Mustang II sold in 386 thousand cars !! There were only 3 years that Mustang sold better - 65, 66 and 67 .... and the new models are selling like 100 k Mustangs per year. Car had front disc brakes, rack and pinion steering, overhead camshaft (in 2.3) -- and the front suspension is now being used for hot rods to improve steering. Despite the crisis look and downsizing it was a good car. In the rear they've also replaced leaf springs with coil springs and 4link like suspension.

      I think this is reminiscent of most new cars, new full of crap and unreliable fadgets, it’ll get worse the more of this PCP never has been crap is easy debt 💸 (I mean credit) I buy a car outright and buy it to keep many years, none the never has been PCP extortion of price.

      Mat- you’re one of my favorite reviewers and I gave this video a like but have to disagree re: the Porsche 718 being one of the 10 worst replacements. Yes, the soundtrack isn’t as pleasant as the previous generations but the styling and performance are better. The relatively little amount of low end lag is negligible and after that it’s spectacular. It still sounds good it just doesn’t sound like it did. Being an overall better car with a less brilliant soundtrack should not qualify for this list. You’re certainly entitled to your opinion but 10 worst?

      The issue with the golf 4 and "GTI" was that it almost became a trim level rather than a spec. They (often at the dealership) stuck the GTI badge on most of the range. Most of the earlier diesel Matt refers to were badged as GT TDI though I believe.
