Default The "Import it, Deport it" thread!

I am opening this discussion for those models which we do not need yet are on sale and opinions on ideal replacements that we want.
PS: this is similar to what is a column in top gear magazine but I feel that we should also have our viewpoints.
shouldn't we?

lets start:

import it: EVO X
deport it: old lancer (do we really need it?)

import it: ford flex (one of he most distinctive vehicles launches in USA- in India, nothing looks like it)
deport it: ford endeavour (looks like a truck grafted onto a bus body I hate it ( the new one)

import it: Suzuki wagon R 2009 JDM, splash, APV
deport it: zen estilo (zen-are u kidding?), current wagon-r (looks like a devil with a versa rear end), versa-no comments..

import it:Euro Honda accord
deport it: current honda accord-looks like a mix of 5-series with a crappy rear end

import it:
Hyundai genesis-RWD car for superb money.
deport it: hyundai sonata-good car let down by bad interior and poor image
