Named models that left the car market in Europe

Named models that left the car market in Europe

Researchers at JATO Dynamics have listed cars whose sales on the European market have been discontinued for a variety of reasons. It is noted that Europeans will not miss them.

Experts recalled the once popular models that left the car markets in Europe. Among them, for example, a subcompact Alfa Romeo Mito, whose release began back in 2008. In dealerships, this model could be found until the second half of this year. Mito never got a five-door version, and before its update the automaker still could not get their hands on it. Hence the quite logical result.

Another model that did not wait for the upgrade and lost the interest of customers is the Citroen C4. The second generation car debuted in the fall of 2010 and has never been facelifted.

The DS 4 model, in turn, “fell” in competition with another brand car – DS 7 Crossback. The hatchback DS 5 was enthusiastically received by the media, but ordinary customers did not appreciate its original appearance.

Out of Europe and Fiat Punto, which at one time bore the title of the most attached car in the region. The brand tried several times to update the model, but this was not enough to get ahead of the competition. But the Ford B-Max fell victim to the “boom” of SUVs. The compact KIA Carens also gave way to more successful models. British MG GS, which debuted in 2016 in London, received a successor in the person of ZS, who is called the main rival of Nissan Qashqai.

In addition, in the 2019th Europe, Mitsubishi Pajero / Montero / Shogun left Europe, which could not find its buyer because of the high price, “inconvenient” sizes and poor brand recognition. The Nissan Pulsar hatchback could not compete with the Volkswagen Golf and lost ground. The budget Seat Toledo liftback has also become history for Europe, but Europeans most likely did not even notice this loss. This model has never played an important role in the market since its debut in 2012. Also in the list of cars that left Europe, were two Toyota models – Avensis and Verso, the iconic Volkswagen Beetle and Volkswagen Jetta.
