Chevrolet is bringing a selection of its not-for-U.S.-sale cars to the Detroit Auto Show next week in order to illustrate the depth of the automaker's international offerings, but the real question is: would you like to see them here?

Chevy Trax

The Trax is a subcompact SUV sold in Canada and Mexico, among other countries, but if you want to buy one in the U.S. you'll have to shell out for the more luxurious Buick Encore, which is based on the same platform.

Chevy Orlando

Chevy originally planned to bring the three-row, seven-passenger Orlando multi-purpose vehicle to the U.S. when it debuted in 2011, but then changed its mind. Should it reconsider?

Chevy Spin

Not even as long as a subcompact Chevy Sonic, the seven-passenger spin is built in Brazil and Indonesia.
