Germany has an incredible reputation when it comes to cars. Things like great handling, superior build quality and beautiful interiors are all things that German cars are associated with.
With this in mind below are 5 of the best German models currently on the market.
Mercedes A-Class Hatchback
The Mercedes A-Class manages to improve on the driving experience of its predecessor and is firmly focused on luxury and comfort. The Build quality of the A-Class is fantastic as you would expect but the interior is where it really shines. The dashboard feels incredibly modern and well-built and features technology including twin displays and digital dials. Everything is built from premium materials which helps to push the feeling of luxury. The A-Class drives well in all conditions and provides stiff competition for Audi and BMW.
Mini Clubman Estate
The Mini has a unique charm that no other car has been able to replicate. Over the years there have been a number of iteration of the new Mini and the Clubman Estate is one of the very best. It manages to combine the unique looks and great driving experience of a Mini with many customization options. Although Minis can be considered expensive the entry-level models of the Clubman estate are actually quite affordable.
BMW 1 Series Hatchback
The 1 Series is a unique offering in that it provides everything that BMW is associated with, from a great driving experience to superior build quality, in a compact and affordable package. People who prioritize a great drive will love the 1 Series as the rear wheel drive layout and optimized chassis provide a truly superb driving experience. Even the cheapest model of the 1 Series provides a great driving experience but if you want something truly special then you’ll want to get the top of the range model.
Audi A1 Sportback Hatchback
The A1 Sportback from Audi is impressive for a number of reasons. Firstly it retains what makes Audi’s great in a compact vehicle that still offers generous interior space and comes with 5 doors. It provides a very quiet and smooth ride while still being fun to drive in all conditions. Although some people would argue that the Mini provides a better driving experience, the A1 Sportback makes up for this in so many other ways.
Audi A3 Hatchback
As far as compact luxury cars go, the Audi A3 is one of the very best. It manages to combine incredible good looks with a great driving experience and luxury interior. The A3 comes in petrol and diesel models and offers a practical yet fantastic vehicle.
