Volvo V90

The Volvo V90 may have been Volvo's best car in America. But Volvo is an SUV manufacturer in America now, and sells more XC90 SUVs in one month than V90s — period.

Hyundai Veloster

The Hyundai Veloster N is a super fun driver's car, but the base models — with all of the three-door quirkiness and impracticality but nowhere near as much power — sold profoundly poorly. Surprise, surprise: Hyundai is only bringing the N back for 2022.
