If you look at an average European car beside an average American car, you might notice how European cars tend to be smaller, in general. The most common explanation for the difference in the size of American automobiles compared to European automobiles is that European cities have narrower roads and streets that branch out into several twists and turns. This is mostly due to the number of cramped buildings located within city centers. The designs of structures are quite dated unlike in the United States, which has comparatively more modern buildings.
There’s more than meets the eye as you distinguish between the two types of cars. Further comparisons tell us the differences in terms of gas capacity, design, and pricing of components. Gas prices tend to be cheaper in the United States than in the United Kingdom, which is why the size of American automobiles allow for engines that are much larger compared to European automobiles.
In the past, standard European cars shifted towards a curved design, unlike the box-shaped cars that were popular in the US back in the day. Hatchbacks have been popular in Europe since they allow drivers to maneuver easily on European roads and save up on gas due to its efficiency. Given these two factors, European cars are designed to be dynamic for driving while American cars tend to be bolder and more focused on achieving a powerful performance.
The price of components and service repairs on European models tend to be pricier compared to American models as the design is typically more complicated and requires more expensive parts, even though the general size of American automobiles is much larger. Most people prefer to drive an American car because of this, but this shouldn’t make you shy away from European cars, especially if you prefer a great driving experience.
Fortunately, if you live in the US, you can enjoy the thrill of European cars without worry.
