Hello Sewell drivers! Thanks for visiting the Miles Auto Service blog. Today we are having a fun discussion on American vs European cars. Which camp are you in?
A classy Volkswagen Passat or an economical Ford Fusion? A precisely made BMW X5 or a luxurious Cadillac Escalade? A power packed Chevrolet Corvette Z06 or a speedy Porsche 911 Turbo? The list goes on and on and the comparisons are endless but the question is: “American styling vs European styling?” A lot of it comes down to personal preference but it is always an exciting debate!
American vs European Styling?
No matter what car segment you examine, it’s almost impossible to find it exclusive to European or American carmakers. Whether you’re looking for a sensible auto to fit a large family, a fancy daily commuter, or you simply want to zip around in a sports car, you will be able to find a European and American car maker that offers each of those.
The top European automobile manufacturers are Volkswagen, Mercedes Benz, BMW, Ferrari, and Porsche while the top makers in America are Ford, Dodge, Cadillac, Chrysler, and GM.
European automobiles are often seen as more pricey but more elegant. A Ferrari or Lamborghini will set you back hundreds of thousands of dollars but in return you get to cruise around in one of the world’s most coveted cars; just make sure you’re ready for the crowds that will surround your car just for a picture.
Mercedes Benz, Audi, and BMW are so popular and well known that some fans consider them to be in a competition among themselves. These three car manufacturers use a combination of powerful engines, luxurious interiors, and beautiful designs to attract many car admirers around the world.
When you consider iconic American made autos, you might think about the classic muscle cars such as the Ford Mustang, Chevrolet Camaro, and Dodge Challenger. American carmakers are known for their reliability, practicality, and dependability. They are also often seen as a better value.
Are you a fan of American or European autos? Or do you favor Japanese? (We can devote a future article to Asian models.) Whether you drive a European or American made automobile, it needs to be well maintained and taken care of.
