You always want what you can't have. If that old adage is true, these cars might be the most desirable of autos to U.S. consumers because none of them are available here.

But it's not just their manufacturers' indifference to the U.S. market that makes them attractive. Most cars on the list are diesel or come with a diesel option. They get great fuel mileage, are stylish and offer some enticing features. They aren't slouches in performance, either.

Since these cars are only available overseas, prices and measurements had to be converted to U.S. figures. You also may notice "BHP," or brake horsepower. It's a measure of how much horsepower the engine puts out without considering any loss of power by some engine parts and is slightly higher than standard horsepower.

In addition, gas mileage is measured in miles per gallon in combined city and highway driving. None of these cars have been submitted to the Environmental Protection Agency for fuel economy testing. Therefore, mpg estimates are based on testing standards in the United Kingdom or India, which differ from the EPA's.
