A new decade is here, and with it will certainly come many new cars. But looking back on the last decade, there are many cars that did such a great job that we’d like to take them with us into the future. And while supercars worth more than you and everyone you know may be fancy and fun, they’re usually littered with issues and limited maintenance – not usually what defines a truly good car.
So, what does? Here are our top 5 picks for the 2010s.
Lotus Evora GT430
Though Lotus is an exotic brand, the Evora might not be the most unique car they’ve ever made. But for a sports car, it’s one of the best the last 20 years have seen– so much so that people are still visiting Lotus’s HQ just to give it a spin.
ND Mazda MX-5 Miata
This car goes against the trend of many modern cars: it’s lighter, smaller, and not even the most powerful. And yet, anyone who drives it can see it’s something special.
2019 Bugatti Chiron Sport
Bugatti is a name that’s still cherished by many – but more so for its past than its future. It never wanted to be mainstream, but somehow managed to survive this long without it. Its goal, instead of quantity, is absolutely perfection in its quality. And since it makes itself so undoubting in appearance, its true power remains a secret between the machine and the man behind the wheel.
Volvo loves you, and it wants you to love it back. Ever at the forefront of driving safety and extra protection, years of research and safety engineering went into this car with next-level accident protection installation and safety materials. It makes safety comfortable, fast, fun, and even seriously good-looking.
BMW M3 GTR
Okay…it’s more than 10 years old, but that’s just a testament to what a great car this is. We heard a story once when the M3 first came out – a friend had a friend who knew nothing about cars. Before she got in, there were nothing but blank stares when she was introduced to the M3. But 2 minutes into the drive and she said, “I get it. This is the real deal.” It’s been a top pick since day 1.
