Which Nation Makes The Best Cars?
A common debate among car enthusiasts is which country produces the best cars. Naturally, the correct answer is always going to be subjective. Everyone has different views about what exactly constitutes “the best car”. These personal preferences, as well as other factors, may cause motorists to select one favorite nation over another.
For example, someone who favors efficiency in automobiles will will likely favor Germany. We are all familiar with Germany’s most famous auto manufacturers, like BMW, Audi and Mercedes Benz. These cars set the standard for sleek class durability, reliability and quality. However, there are also those who are bored by efficiency. They are looking for something sexier, sportier or faster. If you are one of those people, some of your favorites might be the Italian manufacturers like Ferrari and Lamborghini.
West vs. East German Quality
Of course, it is impossible to attribute specific characteristics to all cars manufactured in a specific country. After all, Germany produced the Porsche and the Fiat comes from Italy. This is not to mention the cars produced in East Germany, such as the Trabant and the Wartburg. It may be an unfair comparison, but vehicles were of notoriously poor quality. Other enthusiasts will say that neither Italy nor Germany makes the best cars. They are the fans of the French classics Citroen and Renault.
One might expect both the US and the UK to be at the top of the list of nations that produce quality cars. However, the are probably both outranked by the others already mentioned. Some new arrivals, such as Japan and Korea both have some excellent car makers. But for most automotive enthusiasts, it will come down to Germany vs. Italy. Just look at any Forumla One races and you’re bound to agree.
