Are European Automobiles Safe and Reliable?

Yes, European automobiles are safe and reliable. In fact, they have many advantages. Many European automobiles sold in the United States are manufactured in the United States; BMW’s largest manufacturing plant worldwide is in South Carolina. Second, these vehicles are built with European drivers in mind, and as Auto Solutions explains below, this makes them safe, reliable, and efficient.

Safety First

Europe’s highways and city streets can be significantly different from American roads. Some European highways, such as The Autobahn, have areas in which there are no speed limits. Drivers can push their vehicles well above 100 miles-per-hour legally, which sounds like a lot of fun and quite dangerous.

European cities have storied histories dating back hundreds of years, and many of the original cobblestone and narrow streets have been restored or remain intact. This is one reason why many Europeans ride mopeds rather than drive cars; the narrow streets are easier to navigate on a moped.

To boost automotive sales in Europe, manufacturers engineer and build vehicles that handle high speeds and narrow, curvy roads. They are safe to drive under these extreme conditions because they’ve been built to drive in these conditions. They are known for handling and control.

Efficiency Next

European automobiles are also extremely efficient. High-speed driving is one reason why. Another reason why these vehicles are efficient is that gas costs more in Europe than in the United States. Why drive an automobile when a moped saves gas? Manufacturers had to answer this question.

They did so by producing automobiles that get excellent gas mileage. European automobile engines are designed to withstand hard driving using less gas. These engines also last longer, which is why you see a lot of older European automobiles on the road. Efficiency is a top priority with European manufacturers.

Diesel engines are even more efficient than gasoline engines, which is why you see so many diesel options from European Automobile manufacturers. With proper care, these engines can last forever, or at least for as long as you want the car, which boosts resell values, too. Safe, reliable, and efficient.
