Even well known and loved by the public models of cars sooner or later get phased out.
Be cause of the quirks of the manufacturer, an outdated design or replacement at almost the same machine with a different number in the title, inevitably there comes a time when the conveyor stops.
Look at the 10 cars that we see in the coming year.
Honda CR-z Released in 2010, hybrid, Honda could not find a buyer. The magazine Car and Driver called it a failed compromise between cheap and nice to drive car which at the same time is neither the one nor the other. In the past year managed to sell only slightly more than three thousand copies of the CR-Z, and the series covered.
Hyundai Genesis Coupe. Six years is a considerable period for the same model, but the Hyundai Genesis still looks fresh. At the time, this Korean coupe was a real breath of fresh air, but then the situation changed. In 2015, Hyundai has ruled out of the line version with 2-liter turbocharged engine, leaving only a more bulky variant with a six-cylinder engine volume of 3.8 liters.
Hyundai Equus. Despite the lackluster appearance, Equus brilliantly come to light in 2011, having won a comparison test from Car and Driver Lexus LS460L all-wheel drive. Over the next four years, Hyundai has continued to work on the model, but sales is not impressive. Equus has been quite a good car that was not able to make buyers love large luxury sedans.
Jeep Patriot. Incredibly boring car with poor control, which for some reason was sold in huge quantities. He was kept afloat only low price but 10 years of production finally came to an end.
The Lincoln MKS. If judged on the basis of which he got from a Volvo S80 1999 model year, it was already old when he debuted in 2009. Stylish appearance and powerful 3.5-liter six-cylinder engine, however, allowed him to play a few points. But the sale went bad — the car was not a luxury for high prices, and as a result, the production decided to fold.
Rolls-Royce Phantom. This model stayed on the market for a surprisingly long time — thirteen years. Phantom is the first Rolls-Royce developed after the purchase of the brand by BMW, and could boast an aluminum body and a twelve-cylinder engine capacity of 6.75 liters in.
Subaru XV Crosstrek Hybrid. The usual Subaru Crosstrek was slow, not too powerful and relatively economical car. What was going to take Subaru, releasing exactly the same slow, weak and a little more efficient on fuel costs hybrid, but more expensive on 3 thousand dollars? It is difficult to say. No wonder he failed.
The Volkswagen Eos. Rumors about the “death” of this model appeared in 2015, but turned out to be false. Eos has been on sale all last and current year, ending his nearly ten-year existence only by 2017.
Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid. Given the low gasoline prices in the United States, it is not surprising that this year was not the best for hybrids, the Jetta has not held up to 2017. Which is strange considering the focus of Volkswagen’s electric vehicles in the future. This model was not of the worst, including once on second place in the comparative rating class according to the magazine Car and Driver, 2013.
The Volvo S80. After nearly a decade of sales, the largest sedan in Volvo finally changed to a new model. Bought it with a scratch, because he had to compete with the BMW fifth series and Mercedes-Benz E-class, and German cars was superior to S80 in all respects. Next sedan in the series — S90 stands out for its excellent appearance and is much more modern. Perhaps with him, the Volvo will be better.
