Mercedes topped the list of the 10 best Cars of the year
As 2021 draws to a close, Motor1 has put together a list of the top 10 cars of the Year, a compilation of the top 10 vehicles reviewed by Motor1 in 2021.Among them, the most listed car companies from South Korea’s Hyundai/Gennesseth brand, a total of three;Followed by Audi and Mercedes are also divided into two seats;Porsche, Honda and Nissan each have a product on the shortlist.So what exactly are these cars?Here’s the answer!While Americans have a soft spot for Audi’s midsize sedans, the more compact S5 Sportback surprised Motor1’s review team with near-perfect performance, comfort and balance.The five-door body is more practical than a two-door sedan without losing its original rhythm.Combine that with an explosive powertrain, excellent Audi technology and a refined luxury interior, and the S5 Sportback is a car that’s hard to beat.The 2021 Mercedes-Maybach GLS 600:9.5/10 Category: Ultra-luxury SUV The Mercedes Maybach GLS 600 is the most expensive car on the list.By giving up the third row of seats, the Maybach GLS makes the second row of passengers very comfortable and, coupled with the Maybach’s unique driving mode, absorbs almost any slight vibration from the road.However, this is a reflection of the fact that the regular GLS has a lot to offer.8. The 2021 Genesis GV80:9.5/10 Category: Luxury Midsize SUV This luxury brand from Korea, the Genesis GV80 has the luxury driving experience of the German BBA class.The GV80 is a more versatile family SUV than the positioning sedan G80, with roomy third-row seats.But even if you use a standard five-seater, you’ll find a crossover with a great technology suite, smart driver assistance features, and quiet, comfortable driving space.The 2021 Porsche 911 Turbo: 9.6/10 Category: High-performance Sports Car Without putting it too lightly, this should be the sports car of the year for 2021.The new and upgraded Porsche 911 Turbo is comparable to its predecessor, the 911 Turbo S, with extra power and sportier suspension technology.All-wheel drive is still standard, and with a set of winter tires, the 911 gives you a ground-to-ground experience even when driving in snow.The latest Honda Civic is a step away from its previous wild and radical designs with a cleaner, more refined look.While some might think it’s more boring, we think it’s ok.In contrast, we liked the interior changes, which Honda also overhauling with a retro touch to the dashboard and a hidden air conditioning outlet.The driving experience of the new Civic is also perfectly inherited from its predecessor, even if it looks less sporty.The all-new Civic is still arguably the best compact car in its class.5. The 2021 Hyundai Santa Fe: 9.6/10 Category: Midsize SUV The 2021 Hyundai Santa Fe looks like a slight makeover, but it’s actually more than that.In fact, the entire architecture platform has been revised and upgraded, adding two new powertrains (conventional hybrid and plug-in), and in terms of luxury, the new Santa Fe is as good as its class.Including a powerful 2.5-liter turbocharged engine, plenty of active safety features and premium interior materials, we ended up giving the new Santa Fe a 9.6, just 0.029 points behind the Audi RS6 Avant.The 2021 RS6 Avant is an absolute treat — a station wagon that combines speed and comfort to meet the needs of almost any car owner, including Americans.The Audi RS6 Avant is hardly the most attractive car in the segment.Perfect proportions and dynamic handling, and when it comes to explaining why station wagons are cool to a non-car lover, showing him the RS6 Avant will do the job.The 2021 Nissan Rogue won praise from our review team for its impressive space, excellent ride comfort, rich smart technology, and the best active safety features in its class.Rogue would be close to perfect if it weren’t for its plain appearance.If you’re looking for fuel economy, safety, comfort, and value for money — a family-oriented SUV — the 2021 Nissan Rogue is for you.2. The 2021 Genesis G80:9.7/10 category: Luxury midsize Sedan With its inside-out avant-garde design and luxurious and comfortable driving experience, the Genesis G80 sets itself apart in the mid-size luxury segment, even in terms of comfort, style and intelligence.At this point, audi A6 and Mercedes E-class at the same level have to submit to defeat.The G80 also fulfils its mission as a modern luxury sedan well.While we had a few disagreements about the s-Class’s lackluster look, we all praised the technology, great driving performance, and a more comfortable ride.After comprehensive evaluation, we still give it the no.1 position of the year, the S-Class is still the benchmark of luxury cars.
