I think it is only in peoples minds that "round" cars are more aerodynamic that "boxy" or straight lined cars.

The VW Beetle has always been curvy.
Salt Factory
Two prime examples: Toyota AE82 FX-GT/AE92 FX-GT Toyota Aw11 MR2/SW20 MR2
Boxy cars are hot.
The most popular car in Europe during the 6ties was the Beetle and that is about the most round car there is.

Cars went from curvy to boxy to curvy. 40's, 50's and 60's cars were curvy as hell. But they were ugly, so by they 70's cars moved away from curvy space age designs to more practical boxy designs. As time went on and ELA regulations required that auto companies get better fleet average fuel mileage streamlined designes became more practical. Now we have cars that have lower drag coefficients than the corvettes of the 70's! This started when the Honda CRV beat the Corvette with a drag coefficient of .31 to the corvettes .32. Many cars today have drag coefficients of 2.8 or lower. My Ford Fusion, 4 door family sedan had a drag coefficient of 2.87. And that's a car that being used as a taxi cab in NYC! A frickin taxi cab! My wife doesn't see the embarrassment in this but it's not lost on me!

Fist of them all is Tatra 77 1934- 1938. Made in Czechoslovakia. World exist even outside of United States of Merica.
I have a 92 VW GTI 16v. LOVE the style. The 93 MK3 Golf looks like every other round hatch. No character. I have kept it since 2000 and have not seen anything I like as much since the early 90's.
Fez Master
car blows up THE FUTURE!!
Modern round cars look like modern gym shoes and modern gym shoes look like modern round cars that look like modern gym shoes. I dislike the design of both of them.
I guess you could say that the popular shape of cars took a... turn... in the curved direction.
