Okay, so the world is getting a convertible Evoque. Neat! I guess. It's weird, but you know at least some people will buy it. Plus, we like weird cars because they're better than boring cars.

Every now and then automakers try to fill a niche that didn't really exist before, or give us a car we didn't ask for. Sometimes they're terrible, sometimes they're pretty badass. What are the best cars nobody asked for?

I love that the Mercedes GLA45 AMG exists, especially in the bonkers trim with the spoiler and boy racer wheels. No one really asked for an entry-level Mercedes crossover with an engine that insane, but we have one now, and it's delightfully nuts.

What other amazing cars filled a white space (sorry) in the market that previously didn't exist?
