Cars Off the Market in 2015

Axt zum spalten1 Each year car makers put out a new and improved version of each car with slight changes to improve aesthetics, drivability, safety, and quality. Every several years, a huge overhaul in design usually occurs.

However, when cars start to lose their appeal despite these upgrades and automakers are feeling the disinterest in sales, then that model is dropped altogether. Fortunately, a better model is then launched in hopes that it will hit the mark of what car shoppers are looking for.

As for the cars that are dying off for 2015, some are not surprising and others are. For those of you that love these models, take good care of yours because there won’t be a shiny new one available in the future.

Sedans

These all around sedans meant for every day driving had their heydays and even their share of telling people to think inside the cube. At the end of the day though, even the most expensive one lost its appeal. Say goodbye to these sedans.

  • Acura TL
  • Acura TSX
  • Cadillac CTS-V
  • Nissan Cube

Hybrids & EV’s

During this movement towards more energy and fuel efficient cars, these companies put out environmentally-friendly versions of these favorite fleets. While they gave the earth their best shot, these green cars just didn’t make ends meet to keep reproducing them. Better luck next time.

  • Chevy Malibu Eco
  • Chevy Impala Eco
  • Honda Fit EV
  • Toyota RAV4 EV

Sport

Great for reawakening the youthful spirit and for ultimate control, these sports cars didn’t age as well others. In fact, they are set to retire for the newer and flashier sports cars to come screeching up. Au revoir.

  • BMW 1 Series
  • Lamborghini Gallardo
  • Mercedes-Benz CL-Class

Wagon/Hatchback

Wagons and hatchbacks usually make for a sportier and more rugged vehicle that are fun to drive. They usually come with pretty decent mileage and nice trunk space. Despite the benefits these cars have, consumers felt it was time to move on. Plan on looking at different 5-doors instead of these.

  • Acura TSX
  • Cadillac CTS-V
  • Scion xD

SUV

One of the best things since the combustion engine for nature lovers, these SUVs are going off the market. Although the RAV34 was mentioned above, it still qualifies as an SUV for those more concerned with their shopping options here. Fear not though, the gas only versions will still be available. The much loved FJ will live wild and free with their adventurous owners and unfortunately for others, you need to look in the used car lots from now on.

  • Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet
  • Toyota RAV4 EV
  • Toyota FJ Cruiser

Van

Vans are looking great these days as there is just one stepping behind the curtain. The Routan looked great on the outside but wasn’t as functional within. With all the fancy gadgets available in cars these days, it’s not surprising to get the axe if you don’t keep up.

  • Volkswagon Routan

Convertible

The Chrysler 200 Convertible just wasn’t keeping up with its hard top siblings. Despite the wind blowing in your hair, riders found it cramped, outdated, and had poor mileage.

  • Chrysler 200

With any car, it’s important to keep it up to date on factory recommended maintenance schedules. With these ones in particular, if you love what you have and want it to last as long as possible, then bringing it in for seasonal check-ups too is important, especially if you ride your car hard.
