European auto shows are a lot of fun, mainly because we get to see all the cool (and sometimes not so cool) cars that North Americans don’t get.

Roaming the floors of the 2017 Geneva Motor Show, there were a ton of little European hatches, wagons, diesels, and cars of all types not offered on our continent. North Americans don’t get a lot of cars Europeans do for a lot of reasons: Stricter North American regulations and emissions standards, wildly different tastes and needs in cars, and the fact that some automakers just don’t operate here.

A few cars we spotted at the Geneva show that we can’t get here include a Ford Focus ST wagon, Subaru Levorg, Opel Adam, Alfa Romeo Mito and Giulietta, Suzuki Swift, and even a diesel Subaru Forester or Outback. A few automakers that don’t sell cars in North America include DS, Peugeot, Citroen, SEAT, Ssangyong, Suzuki, and Renault.

Flip through the gallery above to check out some Euro cars that North Americans can’t buy. Which ones would you like to bring to the U.S. and Canada? Let us know in the comments below!

    Any of the hot wagons we don't get - the Subie Levorg, the Focus ST, the BMW (I'd add the Mazda6 wagon, though it's not in this photo set). With manuals.

      yes...all must have a 3 pedal option...However, I want the Levorg to carry the Legacy GT (or RS) nameplate...I think the Alfa Mito would be good to have as well as the two Ford estates (wagons) would add a nice mix to the N.American car line-up...I would also like to see the VW Saharan so they can ditch the stupid Chrysler clone...Bring us wagons (in limited numbers w/ the correct transmission) and they will sell because I need to replace my 13yo GTI w/something - Mazda6 wagon, Legacy GT wagon, etc
