If you live in the United States and you want to buy a new car, you should check your choice carefully, because there is a long list of forbidden vehicles in the country.
So, before you make any decision, check this list of the vehicles that are not allowed to own in USA. If you desperately want to have some of these vehicles, maybe you should think about moving out of the USA.
8. Alfa Romeo Giulietta –
Even though this brand was available on the American market, the latest Giulietta model won’t be available in the USA, because Alfa Romeo withdrew from the USA market. We don’t know the real reason why they did that.
7. Ford Focus RS500 –
This model is really compact and incredible, and those who have it surely can tell that the car is one of the best they can ever buy. Also, this vehicle can’t be owned by some American, because it’s restricted by the USA’s governing institutions, .
6. Volkswagen Scirocco –
This vehicle is wild, aggressive and stylish, but it has one really big disadvantage. If you are from USA, you can only Google it to see some pictures from time to time, or maybe you can order a poster and put it on the wall in your room.
5. Peugeot RCZ Coupe –
Automotive fans will never be able to see any Peugeot model on the streets, because the company gave up trying to conquer the market. If you like this vehicle or you want to have it, maybe you will need to move to Europe so you can hit the roads driving it.
4. Lada Niva –
For European market, this is one of the cheapest, but incredibly capable off-road vehicles. This model is also known as Lada 4×4. If you are from USA, you may not even know about it. If you somehow, have ever heard about this vehicle, we are sorry to tell you that you can find it everywhere, except in United States.
3. Audi RS2 Avant –
Yes, this car is powerful, entry level luxury car and provides a great driving performance, but it’s not available in the USA. It was only available in Europe, Hong Kong, South Africa, Brazil and New Zealand. The RS from the name stands for RennSport (“racing sport” in German).
2. Nissan Patrol –
Even though this is one of the most popular vehicles in Australia, you will never have it in the USA. It was first produced in 1951, but since then, it never came to the American market. It’s very popular in New Zealand, Middle East and Latin America.
1. Toyota Hilux –
This is a very popular and eye-catching commercial pickup truck, but, guess what? It’s not available in the USA because of the foreign competition. Yes, it seems like the Americans really take care about the country’s profit and budget.
Fun fact: For a long time, the term “Hilux” was used to describe the vehicles that today, we recognize by the names “Truck”, “Pickup Truck” and “Compact Truck”. The term “truck” was adapted later.
