We’ve all heard the stories of cars that have been brought back to life. But what about the best examples of modern car design? Here are seven cars that you can actually drive today, after being gone for decades or even longer.
The Lexus NX was a luxury car produced by Lexus from 1999 to 2003. It was the first Lexus model to be based on the Toyota Camry platform, but it was a completely new vehicle.
The NX came with two engines: a 2.0L inline 4 cylinder engine capable of 173 hp or an optional 3.0L V6 engine that delivered 232 hp and 406 lb·ft (515 N·m).
Mazda 3 Sedan
The Mazda 3 sedan is a compact car produced by Mazda since 1999. It was the first Mazda car to be sold in the United States.
The third generation of the Mazda 3 debuted in 2016 with an updated interior and exterior design, as well as a more powerful engine option. The previous generation lasted from 2011–2016, with its last major facelift occurring in 2014 when it gained a new front fascia that included LED headlights and taillights along with revised bumpers, wheels and grille treatment
The Mazda CX3 is a compact SUV, which means it’s bigger than an SUV and smaller than a big car. It’s also classified as a crossover SUV, meaning that it combines two different driving styles: off-road capability (like the Jeep Wrangler) with on-road comfort (like the Honda CR-V).
The CX3 was introduced to market in 2015 and has been available for sale ever since. The vehicle is considered small by today’s standards; however, when it first came out on the market there were many people who felt this made it too small for their needs!
