You should never listen too carefully to consensus. There are lots of great cars that don’t succeed in the marketplace, or fail to impress critics. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t drive them! Here are 4 of the best.
1. Dodge Durango
Yes, the SUV market is incredibly crowded nowadays, so do we really need the Dodge Durango? Well, for me, the Durango is one of the best SUVs on the market, and the fact that it’s overlooked is a real shame. The Ford Highlander and the Toyota Highlander have more customers, but I don’t think they’re better cars.
In terms of space and comfort, you won’t find a better option than the Durango. The handling is great, and the bulky frame is great fun to drive, but comfort and space are where the Durango conquers. It also has great entertainment systems onboard and luxury leather upholstery.
2. Cadillac CTS
Mid-size luxury sedans are very popular at the moment, but one car that has never seemed to get the praise it deserves is the Cadillac CTS. It’s Cadillac’s flagship car right now, but some of the competition is doing a little better. The main cars that are outdoing the CTS are the Audi A6, Mercedes-Benz E-Class and the Lexus GS.
So, why do I think the CTS should be doing better? The 2014 model is now larger than the older models, so they have ironed out the problem of a lack of space. This was a big issue because its interiors were too compact. But add the extra space the fun driving style and satisfying handling and you’ve got a great car.

3. Volvo XC60
Volvo tends to be associated with making sedans that place a priority on safety and reliability. And, yes, they do make those cars very well. But they can make great cars in other sectors of the car making industry. The Volvo XC60 is a classic example of this, but that quality just didn’t translate into market success.
The XC60 is a crossover SUV that can suit families well. The problem is that it never quite found its audience. It’s actually a very versatile car though, and maybe that worked against it. It has all the space and room a family car needs but can also handle rocky terrains for those who like to drive off-road.
4. Jaguar XJ6
The Jaguar XJ6 is a strange car in many ways. It’s a beautifully designed car that has been overlooked over the years. It’s a car that deserves to do better than it did. But it’s not particularly surprising that it didn’t. At the time of the car’s release in the 1990s, Jaguar were facing some engineering problems, and reliability had become an issue.
The good thing about the car’s failure is that they can now be picked up very cheaply on the second-hand market. So, why not get one? They’re cheap, they look great, and they’re actually pretty well engineered, despite what some thought.
There are lots of underrated cars that don’t get the attention they deserve, so make sure you consider these 4!
