If you think you're seeing more SUVs and crossovers on the road, you're not imagining things. That's because automakers are making what USA Today calls a "sweeping shift" into those types of vehicles—which also means they're dumping more-traditional passenger cars from their lineups. The paper sifted through its own research, as well as digging by Edmunds, Kelley Blue Book, and others, to find the models whose ignitions have been, or are going to soon be, switched off for good. Read on for the cars you won't be seeing much longer:

  • Cadillac ATS
  • Cadillac CTS
  • Cadillac XTS
  • Chevrolet Cruze
  • Chevrolet Impala
  • Ford C-Max
  • Ford Focus
  • Ford Taurus
  • Honda CR-Z
  • Hyundai Azera
  • Nissan Juke
  • Toyota Prius V
  • Volkswagen Beetle
  • Volkswagen Touareg
