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.
  1. Alfa Romeo Giulietta
    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
    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
    Ford's entry into the mini-CUV segment is a real looker, with the gaping grille and off road stance.
  5. Land Rover Defender
    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
    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
    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
    The robotic face is a bit polarizing, but definitely interesting and pops when the car is painted blue.
