The Yugo, also called Zastava Koral and Yugo Koral, was a subcompact hatchback vehicle. It was manufactured between 2000 and 2008 by the Zastava Automobiles, then a Yugoslavian vehicle-production company. Before 2000, these automobiles were produced from completely different vehicle-making businesses.

The first Yugo vehicles were produced in August 1953. They used designs licensed by Fiat of Turin. The cars came into the United States in 1985.[1] The automobiles were called Yugo when being manufactured in the United States.

Yugo America sold these vehicles between August 1985 and 1992. They were called the worst vehicles in history.[2]
