I write this list from Modena, Italy, surrounded by vehicles that I rarely get to see in person.
  1. Alfa Romeo Giulietta
    E15fc34d 79a0 43ac 8372 0f59adc81f11
    Slinky hatchback which is soon to be replaced. A long time favorite since I saw it in Australia several years ago.
  2. Citroen C4 Cactus, C4 Picasso, DS3

    The 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.
  3. Dacia Duster, Sandero
    F6a06624 a385 492f 9940 a2370f01e8e8
    The Dacia Duster (pictured) is a cheap but durable SUV and the Sandero is its hatchback counterpart. Both offer solid looks with reliable, inexpensive function.
  4. Ford Ecosport
    3c5e52c7 8f9a 4c59 8430 425331329b01
    Ford's entry into the mini-CUV segment is a real looker, with the gaping grille and off road stance.
  5. Land Rover Defender
    C204a93d 736f 4348 887c 94c4cae40740
    About 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.
  6. Peugeot RCZ
    A7266347 072b 4040 91c6 6c453df52c4f
    This low-slung coupe is unique, and also a pretty good car to drive. My favorite Peugeot.
  7. Renault Captur, Clio, Megane, Twingo, Twizy, Zoe, Talisman
    14d99a0d 4781 49d3 8584 8b4615d878fb
    As 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.
  8. Toyota Aygo
    C8f7de3b 6a26 4e0d a963 411a3528a1cd
    The robotic face is a bit polarizing, but definitely interesting and pops when the car is painted blue.
