Which is better American cars or European cars?
that is a very vague question. If we are talking about
supercars, European cars win there but if we are talking about
muscle cars, Americans win there.
Comparing these two types of cars is fairly complicated for a
number of reasons. European cars and American cars are not better
than one another simply because they have their own negative and
positive traits. Where as European vehicles tend to be higher in
cost, American vehicles tend to be lower. Where as European cars
tend to have higher quality, American vehicles, by opinion tend to
be lower, but quality is debatable.
American vehicles appeal more towards a younger age group with
Ford/Chevy/Dodge making somewhat cheaper cars which are sometimes
referred to as "throw away" vehicles, which simply means the trade
in value of these vehicles will be much lower on resale. European
cars tend to appeal to an older age group and reflect this with the
higher cost of the vehicle. As far as maintenance, European
vehicles do tend to require a greater deal of costs by specialty
and the fact that certain European automobiles are not serviced in
all areas of the world. American cars tend to require less
maintenance simply because of the simplicity of the engines and
genericness of the parts which is also in turn lower in cost and
more serviceable in larger areas.
As far as overall power goes, this is also debatable simply
because American auto makes do make high powered muscle cars and
even higher powered supercars, manufactured by Saleen, Ford, and
Dodge, however European vehicles are known as being equal in power
if not greater because of the larger number of manufacturers which
cater to power over quantity. I could go on for hours about the
overall differences in these two types of vehicles however there is
simply no clear cut answer to which type of car is "better", they
are simply better at each other in certain areas, but all together
it is debatable.
