We all know the typical sales winners of the automotive universe. Come hell or high water, Honda Civics (http://www.autoblog.com/tag/civic) and Toyota Camrys (http://www.autoblog.com/model/camry) will still float off of the lot. Granted, that's good news for most automakers, but at the same time, there's a wealth of under-appreciated models languishing under the beady eyes of inflatable gorillas across the country. The good people of Edmunds have taken it upon themselves to wrangle up a top 10 list of those long forgotten winners and filed them under the collective banner of "Dark-Horse" candidates. Sexy.

We're absolutely down with cars like the 2010 Buick Lacrosse (http://www.autoblog.com/model/lacrosse), 2010 Suzuki Kizashi (http://www.autoblog.com/model/kizashi) and the 2010 Hyundai Genesis (http://www.autoblog.com/model/genesis+sedan), but the 2010 Nissan Versa (http://www.autoblog.com/model/versa) has us scratching our heads. While the car is a perfectly decent little compact, the market is awash with other excellent options. Need proof? Look no further than another Edmunds Dark-Horse selection, the 2011 Ford Fiesta (http://www.autoblog.com/model/fiesta). We suppose that with all the hype surrounding the new Blue Oval hatchback that it can't as easily be considered a forgotten option, at least at this point. Hop the jump (http://www.autoblog.com/2010/06/16/edmunds-compiles-top-ten-dark-horse-list-of-worthy-overlooked/#continued) for the full press blast and check the gallery below for the top picks.
