Excellent Cars, But Nobody’s Buying Them

Over the last few decades, many great cars have been manufactured. Although so much effort and not to say money have been put into them, some of these sweet rides did not make it out the dealership door as they have been unfairly ignored. Here are some of those beauties:


Sports wagons are practical machines as they have a lower center of gravity, better handling like that of a sports sedan and an expanded cargo that holds more stuff. The gasoline-powered 328i uses BMW’s 2.0-liter turbo four, 240 horsepower and a 0 to 60mph time of 5.8 seconds.Yet even with all that goodness, the car-buying population of America still shunned this model. In fact, it only sold 3,687 units in 2014.


The CTS has the qualities everyone would be looking for in a sporty sedan. Aside from being lightweight, it also has twin-turbo V6 with 420 horsepower and 2.0-liter turbo four.


JAGUAR XJ (2014)

The Jaguar XJ has an athletic appearance with lightweight aluminum structure. But if you want a car with more nimbleness, you might be interested in the 550-horsepower XJR. And with a price tag that’s $20,000 shy from the expensive Mercedes-Benz S-Class, the XJ can be a good bargain.


MAZDA 6 (2014)

This midsize sedan can beat the Mazda 3, the new Miata and the vaunted Honda Accord. It has a 184 horsepower-engine, a 0-60mph time of 7 seconds and returns 37 mpg on the road. Aside from that, it boasts a responsive chassis, excellent interiors and superb body sculpting and proportions.


Since the 1980s, people weren’t so keen to choose station wagons, and this has intensified when the SUVs started dominating the market. However, E-class wagon is a stunning model that everyone should have loved, if only it sold more than 2,327 models last year. It has a large cargo capacity, third-row seat and sport luxury trim.
