FAVORITE CARS NOT SOLD IN THE USA
I write this list from Modena, Italy, surrounded by vehicles that I rarely get to see in person.
- •Alfa Romeo GiuliettaSlinky hatchback which is soon to be replaced. A long time favorite since I saw it in Australia several years ago.
- •Citroen C4 Cactus, C4 Picasso, DS3The C4 Cactus (pictured) is a back to basics SUV that also looks pretty badass. The Picasso features squinty LED headlights, and is the most stylish minivan besides the new Kia Sedona. The DS3 is a sporty luxury hatchback with an aggressive stance and tons of chrome.
- •Dacia Duster, SanderoThe Dacia Duster (pictured) is a cheap but durable SUV and the Sandero is its hatchback counterpart. Both offer solid looks with reliable, inexpensive function.
- •Ford EcosportFord's entry into the mini-CUV segment is a real looker, with the gaping grille and off road stance.
- •Land Rover DefenderAbout 50 years old, and finally being phased out due to emissions and safety regulations, this workhorse has been providing reliable towing and carrying capabilities for many decades.
- •Peugeot RCZThis low-slung coupe is unique, and also a pretty good car to drive. My favorite Peugeot.
- •Renault Captur, Clio, Megane, Twingo, Twizy, Zoe, TalismanAs you can see, I like most Renaults. The Captur is a cute mini-CUV, and the Clio is a handsome little hatch. The Megane is a decent looking compact car, and the wagon variant is pretty smooth looking in my opinion. The Twingo is a new, classic-retro looking hatchback, and the Zoe is a electric hatch with futuristic looks. The Talisman is a recently introduced, and incredibly gorgeous, sedan. The Twizy (pictured), technically a quadricycle is most countries, is electric and has tandem seating.
- •Toyota AygoThe robotic face is a bit polarizing, but definitely interesting and pops when the car is painted blue.
