The Most Unpopular Cars and SUVs of 2013

There are some models that just cannot convince the potential buyers to open their wallet even though some of these cars shine better than average cars in their respective category in terms of fuel economy, innovative design, performance and good pricing.

Take a look at amazingly unpopular vehicles of 2013 below:

Acura ZDX ($50,920)

Hardly anyone wants to be a proud owner of new Acura ZDX priced at $50k.  A total of 17 of tisis handsome looking crossover SUV were sold to consumers in the United States for the month of Septmber; a drio of 65 percent compared to the same month in 2012.

Overall, the ZDX is down 50 percent on the year. Despite some very positive reviews, this crossover SUV is doomed among U.S. consumers.  It could possibly be the pricing issues; being pitted against some of the legendary best sellers like Lexus RX350 for instance.

Volvo C30 ($25,500)

It’s tough to convince people to snatch up the last of a car an automaker voluntarily killed off, but Volvo (VOLVY.PK) is trying to do just that with the C30. If the “sporty hatchback styling” Volvo touts is magnetic, U.S. consumers haven’t noticed. Only 79 units were sold in September, a drop of 62 percent compared to the 2012 stats. It’s a death knell — rather than a last hurrah — for the C30.

Subaru Tribeca ($34,095)

Subaru is not known for high volume sales for any of its models when compared to its Japanese rival companies such as Toyota and Honda. However, consumers love the Forester and a few other models from Subaru (FUJHY.PK), making them a steady sellers.

The Tribeca crossover on the other hand is proving to be a tough sell. Subaru is bringing the 2014 to the table with little to entice buyers who didn’t want the 2013 version. In September, only 113 units of the Tribeca sold in the U.S., a drop of 17 percent from 2012.

Nissan Cube ($16,760)

Arguably one of the ugliest vehicles on the road, the Nissan (NSANY.PK) Cube is finding it hard to win over many fans in the U.S. If “asymmetry is the new black,” as the Nissan website claims, someone needs to alert car consumers. Nissan sold just 283 units of the Cube in September, a drop of 45 percent from 2012 stats. It could only reflect a crisis of likability for the Cube in this bustling auto market.

Lincoln MKT ($43,050)

U.S. auto consumers are politely declining the “politely progressive” MKT from Ford’s (NYSE:F) struggling luxury brand. Just 414 units of this crossiver sold in September, which represented a drop of 15 percent from last year. There’s been plenty of good news for Ford overall, but not much has come from the Lincoln camp in 2013.

Land Rover LR2 ($37,295)

Did you know that you could own a brand new Land Rover under $40k? No one cared enough to find that out.  LR2, “the model tuned for utility”, is not doing so great in the showrooms  This flop from Tata Motors’ (NYSE:TTM) Land Rover division found a mere 244 customers in September, a drop of 36 percent compared to 2012′s figures. U.S. consumers love jeeps, compact SUVs, and the like. They just don’t like the LR2.
