10 Great Cars That Almost Nobody Buys



There are a lot of cars out there that everybody knows, loves and buys. Vehicles like the Toyota Corolla, Honda Civic and Volkswagen Jetta. But there are many other cars available in today’s market that are equally great when it comes to price and performance, but that nobody buys. While automotive critics sing these cars praises, they suffer from low recognition among car buyers and tend to get overlooked for one reason or another – left to sit idle on sales lots. This is a shame because car buyers have more choice than they often realize. Here is a list of 10 great cars that you’re not buying.

10. Ford Flex

To be honest, the Ford Flex is not the sexiest car in the world. A cross between a sport utility vehicle and a minivan, the Ford Flex looks a little odd. Critics have described the appearance of the Ford Flex as “boxy.” Nevertheless, this vehicle has received much critical praise for being an extremely efficient and practical people mover. It is also good for moving cargo and goods. The Ford Flex has been praised for being good on gas and good for the environment. Its 3.5 liter Ecoboost engine has been cited for being very beneficial for the environment, and producing a best in class 365 horsepower. Yet despite having these things to recommend it, fewer than 20,000 Ford Flex vehicles were sold in 2015. By comparison, Ford sold more than 250,000 Explorer SUVs last year.
