With all the U.S. car sales data gathered in 2013, the Autoblog site took the time to create a list of the ten worst selling vehicles of last year. A couple of weeks ago, Cars.com revealed the list of the top 10 best selling cars of 2013, so we didn't want to stop revealing those found at the other side.
To ensure that the list legitimately includes vehicles with poor sales, the website took the following steps: first, to be cataloged, the sales price must be below $100,000. This allows to remove from the group, supercars and ultra luxury vehicles, otherwise this list would be full of Ferraris, Lamborghinis and Rolls-Royce.
The second requirement is that the vehicle must be on sale and in production throughout the year. This top 10 excluded units that were halfway canceled, like the Volkswagen Routan. In other cases, such as the Acura ZDX, Volvo C30 and Cadillac Escalade EXT, that will no longer be produced in 2014, joined this list because they meet the mentioned mandate.
Finally, were only considered models, just as they were reported by the manufacturers, like the Golf R, which is currently included in the list since Volkswagen revealed it separately from the standard Golf and the GTI model. Obviously, vehicles from the Suzuki firm weren't taken into account because they stopped producing and selling cars in America in 2013.
In summary, the list of the worst-selling cars in 2013 is made up of one made in America vehicle, four from Germany, and five from Japan. One of them is a truck, one sedan, three coupes, one SUV, three hatchbacks, and two sports coupes.
