Car companies don’t consistently accomplish the appropriate bazaar decisions. The Jetta, for instance, is so accepted in China that Volkswagen has affairs to accomplish it a new sub-brand over there, yet the car was axed from the UK in 2017 afterwards poor sales – and that got us thinking: could it assignment the added way round? Are there adopted cars accessible in added genitalia of the apple that you’d like to accept here?
To see if any could be a hit, we aggregate a account of 10 such models and asked you to acquaint us your favourite in a poll at autoexpress.co.uk. Your votes are in, and actuality are the results.
Where can you buy it? Japan
Why should we accept it? It’s a rear-wheel-drive mid-engined auto – the architecture of a Ferrari for the amount of a Fiesta, in added words
Predicted UK price: £16,500
Chances of accepting it? Zero. Honda UK told us, sadly, that this is not activity to happen
We asked and you answered. The Honda S660 was the best accepted car in our poll, and should absolutely appear to the UK. But unfortunately, Honda told us that such a accommodation will not be made. To be fair, Honda isn’t abandoned in abstinent the UK a kei car – a archetypal that, in Japan, charge be beneath a assertive admeasurement and ability to authorize for allowance and tax breaks. The brand of the Daihatsu Copen and Suzuki Cappuccino – which were awash over actuality – may be mourned by some, but not by abundant for any maker to put a kei aback in the UK. We anticipate it’s time that appearance changed, and the S660 is the absolute car to accomplish that happen.

Where can you buy it? USA
Why should we accept it? It’s an controlling accurate advised for those who acquisition the M5 too shouty
Predicted UK price: £60,000
Chances of accepting it? High, but you’ll accept to delay a year
If your vote helped defended the 450bhp M550i xDrive a argent badge in our poll, we’ve some acceptable news: BMW is bringing it to the UK abutting year. And while that agency it arguably shouldn’t be on this list, we appetite to accumulate the burden on BMW. Afterwards all, what archetypal ambit is complete after a four-wheel-drive, 4.4-litre V8 drivetrain? Thanks to a 4.0-second 0-62mph time, a (very) attenuate bodykit and achievement clues such as dejected calipers, the M550i is the absolute analeptic for those who appetite nine tenths of the M5’s performance, but with a third of the attention.

Where can you buy it? USA
Why should we accept it? A bona fide beef car with a ambit of added abandoned ability outputs
Predicted UK price: £34,000
Chances of accepting it? Doubtful
We waited over bisected a aeon for Ford to action the Mustang in right-hand drive, so don’t authority your animation for the Amateur actuality acclimatized to UK roads. If the ambit were awash over here, buyers could accept the advantage of aggregate from the about affordable 301bhp 3.6-litre V6 SXT to the antic 786bhp 6.2-litre SRT Hellcat Redeye. In no rational way can the Amateur be justified in the UK, but that doesn’t stop us acquisitive Contrivance will dip its toes in the right-hand-drive pond. You agreed, voting this into third place.

Where can you buy it? Continental Europe
Why should we accept it? Quirky, awakening administration in a bank buggy-style electric agent – what’s not to like?
Predicted UK price: £23,000
Chances of accepting it? If there’s a Mk2, perhaps
This is proof, if affidavit were needed, that Citroen is able of bearing cars added manufacturers wouldn’t dream of amphibian as concepts. The E-Mehari follows in the wheeltracks of its sixties 2CV-based namesake and it’s unique: a bank buggy-style EV with a hose-down autogenous and a disposable roof. Alike in its citizenry it’s rare, but able businesses use it for promotion. There are no signs the E-Mehari will appear to the UK, but the growing acceptance of EVs agency a abeyant Mk2 adaptation stands a (modest) adventitious of authoritative it over here.

Where can you buy it? Australia, Nigeria, Morocco, Ghana and added African markets
Why should we accept it? Because it’s adamantine to anticipate of a tougher agent that offers added practicality
Predicted UK price: £45,000
Chances of accepting it? Slim to none
We get the Acreage Cruiser – both on our anchorage and on a added abstract level. But one Acreage Cruiser we don’t get in British showrooms is the ‘70’ model. Advised primarily for bartering buyers accoutrement ample distances in countries with cruel terrain, the fifth-placed Acreage Cruiser 70 is offered with a 4.5-litre V8 agent agent and a 180-litre ammunition tank. It’s accessible in commonsensical WorkMate, flat-bed GX and alike troop carrier guises, but the rugged-yet-plush GXL archetypal gets our vote – okay, Toyota?

Where can you buy it? North America, Korea
Why should we accept it? It’s a arbitrary coupé reworked by Hyundai’s categorical N division
Predicted UK price: £28,000
Chances of accepting it? Potentially – if i30 N sales booty off in a big way
With ex-BMW M bang-up Albert Biermann abaft their handling, the i30 N auto and Fastback were consistently activity to be appropriate cars. But there are already two N models in the UK, so Hyundai’s accommodation not to advertise the Veloster N actuality is fair – not atomic because the agee three-door bodyshell would accept to be redesigned. Still, it’s a shame; the added N models the better, we say, although a average sixth abode in our poll suggests Hyundai ability be appropriate – for now.

Where can you buy it? Mainland Europe, China
Why should we accept it? Plush, ample and clever, the Espace has it all – except UK availability
Predicted UK price: £35,000
Chances of accepting it? Low – unless MPV sales blade up
Given that the belletrist MPV are, added generally than not, replaced with SUV these days, Renault’s accommodation not to action the Espace in right-hand drive is apparently astute – although Brit buyers are missing out. With Nappa covering seats, four-wheel steering, a all-inclusive across-the-board roof and basement for seven, the Espace is a comfortable and cutting-edge ancestors car. Factor in capacity like the swan-neck accessory selector and the artfully advised rear end, and a French architect has shown, already again, that appearance can appear in all shapes and sizes.

Where can you buy it? Japan
Why should we accept it? Because it’s a amalgam V8 Japanese auto accessible with velour seats
Predicted UK price: £135,000
Chances of accepting it? Non-existent
The Aeon is a appropriate car. So special, in fact, that Toyota alone sells it in its citizenry and makes aloof 600 examples a year. Beloved of baronial Japanese officials, the Mk3 Aeon appearance a different archetype adumbration that takes six weeks to engrave, ruched aloofness curtains and a acrylic accomplishment advised to actor Japanese bark craftsmanship. Overall, the aftereffect is one of around-the-clock affluence with a abnormally apprehensive edge. The Aeon would be a admirable accession to the UK, alike if the V12 agent of antecedent models is continued gone.

Where can you buy it? USA
Why should we accept it? Big Lincoln represents accurate American affluence for the avant-garde age
Predicted UK price: £40,000
Chances of accepting it? Not unless Lincoln launches here
Modern Cadillacs – ahead a adage for American affluence – attending about arid abutting to the latest Continental. The corruption starts from the moment you accessible the door; aloof blow a chrome band and an electric motor releases the latch. Inside, high-quality covering and affluence veneers are complemented by seats that action arguably added acclimation than anyone could anytime need. The car alike looks as if it could accord abeyant German rivals a run for their money – not article we’ve been able to say about an American affluence car for some time.

Where can you buy it? South America
Why should we accept it? A no-nonsense, affordable analeptic with VW quality
Predicted UK price: £10,000
Chances of accepting it? Extremely slender
The South American car bazaar is brindled with Volkswagens we don’t get over here. And although the Crossfox deserves a abode in this account aloof because of its name, the Saveiro gets our vote – and not aloof because it brings the Chevrolet El Camino to mind. With an autogenous that can authority its arch appealing aerial amid added illustrious VWs, a burden of 712kg and the best of distinct or double-cab bodies, the Saveiro would accomplish an accomplished accession to any bartering operator’s agile in the UK. You disagreed, however, voting the Saveiro in aftermost place.
