Top 10 10 models to be discontinued in 2020

10 models to be discontinued in 2020

We rounded up 10 cars that will not see the turn of the next decade.

Each year new cars enter the market while others leave it. Next year is no different. For these 10 models below, 2019 will be the last year they will be offered as they will not be renewed for 2020.

Some disappearing models we knew; some were a surprise, but the vast majority were just simply not selling.

Here’s the list in alphabetical order:

Chevrolet Cruze

Back in November 2018, GM announced it was going through a significant restructuring phase, which meant laying off 15 % of its workforce in North America as well as cutting low-selling models like the Chevy Cruze.

For the same reasons as the Cruze, General Motors also axed the Chevrolet Volt. The last Volt rolled off the production line on February 15th at the Hamtramck factory in Detroit.

Fiat 500L

Since last year a lot of rumours are going on that 2019 will be the last year of the model. Poor sales sure don’t help its chances of staying in the lineup for 2020. In 2018, in Canada, they sold 13.

Ford Fiesta

With Ford going through a restructuring phase of their own, the “fitness” initiative, we will see them cut all cars save for two. The Fiesta is not one of the two models save therefore, 2019 will be the last year of that little hatchback.

Ford Focus

Like we just said for the Fiesta, the Focus is yet another model that won’t see the light of day next year. In fact, to that list, we also add the Taurus and the C-Max that won’t be coming back in 2020.

Hyundai Santa Fe XL

The Hyundai Santa Fe XL disappears in name only as the SUV changes nameplate for 2020. Indeed, the Hyundai Palisade will replace it in Hyundai’s lineup for next year.

Nissan 370Z Roadster

Starting next year, the Nissan 370Z Coupe will lose its sibling as the 370Z Roadster is being dropped from Nissan’s lineup in 2020.

Last month, Daimler and Mercedes-Benz said they were cancelling the smart brand from the North American market at the end of 2019. The manufacturer sold 345 smart fortwos in Canada last year.

Toyota Prius c

With the soon-to-be-arriving 2020 Toyota Corolla Hybrid on the market, the Prius c will be let go from the Toyota lineup at the end of the year. In addition, the Corolla Hybrid as better fuel economy numbers than the Toyota Prius c.

Volkswagen e-Golf

The Volkswagen e-Golf will not be renewed for another year in North America. With the production of certain members of the ID. family almost on its way and the rumours of the German brand abandoning the next-generation of the standard Golf for the North American market we understand. Volkswagen should introduce its replacement before this model gets killed.
