Our favorite forbidden fruit from the 2018 Paris Motor Show

Cars
[MUSIC] The best slash worse part of any international auto show, is check out all the sweet, sweet rides that we don't get stateside. And, the 2018 Paris Motor Show is no less bitter sweet. But, because I'm such a huge tease, I've rounded up the most desirable of this forbidden fruit. Let's start right here with Suzuki's Jimny, a cute but capable little sport utility. It features a manual transmission and a pretty cool all-wheel drive system, but since Suzuki left the states in 2012, we're definitely not gonna be getting this. This one, but that just makes it more desirable, right? With American's appetite for SUVs, you'd think that this sporty version of Audi's smallest crossover would be bound for the states, but for now we'll have to make do without this 296 horsepower tiny titan. I guess I'll just have to dry my tears on the S3? Mercedes' AMG debuted it's A35 formatic. This bad boy makes 302 ponies from it's 2.0T and it is kitted out with all sorts of AMG go faster goodies. We'll probably get an AMGified version of Of the A-class sedan but the hot hash fans will have to enjoy this baby from afar. Now this is kind of a nitpick because we do get the new Toyota Corolla hatchback. But the new Corolla Sport Touring is a sweet, sweet wagon with more room for cargo and humans. Plus Euro drivers get access to the more efficient hybrid models. What do you get when you cross the BMW 5 series with the pininfarina design? Oddly, it's the Vietnamese built VinFast LUX A2.0. OK, specs aren't super impressive here but the whole package is just peculiar enough to have captured my attention. But maybe you're actually interested in cars that we actually get in America. So to find out, check out the rest of our coverage of the 2018 Paris Auto Show over on theroadshow.com.
