3 Exceptional European Automakers

Posted on November 3, 2022 by Christopher Linn

When you imagine of exceptional cars which are built-in Europe, does your brain run strictly to cars created by Rolls Royce, BMW, or Mercedes? Perhaps Jaguar and Lamborghini one thinks of as well. Each one of these makes deserve all of the accolades directed at them. Still, you can find three makes which are, for various reasons, exceptional. Let's have a look at Volvo, Volkswagen, and Audi, the three makes featured in this post.

For a country of just nine million to create one automaker will be amazing enough. To lay claim to two automakers is merely phenomenal. Both Volvo and Saab are out of this particular country that is Sweden. Now part of Ford Motor Company, Volvo has greatly influenced the auto industry through the years. Safety standards that were universally low elsewhere are a lot more appreciated with Volvo. Front end crumple zones, reinforced roofs and specially designed interiors have all had their origin with Volvo. Out of the high safety standards attended a type of cars which are, indeed, among the best built and safest cars on the highway. Fortunately, through Volvo's leadership, many automakers all over the world have incorporated Volvo's high safety standard. This is exactly what makes Volvo exceptional in my own eyes.

The company that taken to the world the initial people's car, the Beetle, can be exceptional. First designed in Germany through the 1930s, the Beetle survived World War II and was probably the most produced in higher quantities and loved cars on earth. From the 1950s forward the Beetle were able to make motorized transportation open to individuals who otherwise cannot afford an automobile. From university students in america to migrant workers in Mexico and from the gritty cities of Holland to the Irish farmlands, the Beetle made running a car affordable a lot of the masses. Even with importation to the united states ceased through the 1970s, the Beetle was produced for another generation and sold in Mexico.

Without drawing out the idea too far, the word that best describes Audi's quattro technology is "superior handling." Perhaps that's an understatement however when Audi introduced quattro all wheel drive the business threw the gauntlet down and told all of those other auto making world that quattro was the typical where all luxury sedans will be judged. Audi's quattro technology has given the business this type of huge advantage over competitors that through the years it's been banned from certain forms of racing. Indeed, Audi's quattro technology provides continuous traction long past when other road handling schematics reach their threshold.

So, there you own it. Three truly exceptional automobiles from the European continent, exceptional with techniques, perhaps, that needs to be called extraordinary.
