44: Suzuki SX4
You have to give Suzuki an A for effort in the American car market. The tiny automaker tried for years to make a sizable dent in the affordable car segment. The last model to try and do this was the SX4, a tiny crossover car that was ahead of its time (via Car & Driver).
Initially pegged as a fun-to-drive alternative that also had real-time AWD, there was a lot of promise here. But Suzuki went belly up not long after, and consumers were stuck with a car they couldn’t maintain. The SX4 was the last hurrah for the Suzuki brand in America after trying for nearly three decades.
