Google Reveals the Most Searched-For Automakers of 2016

The year 2016 is coming to its end. For that reason, google has decided to share its results for the 10 most searched for automakers of 2016.

10. Rolls Royce

This German-owned British luxury manufacturer’s popularity may have been a result of the upcoming models such as their SUV – The Cullinan. However, the most searched for model was actually the Phantom, the company’s flagship.

9. Maserati

Much for the same reason as the Rolls Royce, we can only assume its partally thanks to a new upcoming SUV – The Levante. Maserati may only sell four models but it didn’t stop it from being so popular. Unlike the Rolls Royce, however, the most searched for model was actually the SUV.

8. Bentley

Spotting the trend yet? European luxury manafacturers with upcoming SUVs were popular this year. Bentley joined the list thanks to an upcoming crossover SUV, the Bentayga.

4. Lamborghini

Lamborghini may sell the least, on the list, but it didn’t stop it from being number 4 on the list. With just a count of 2 models (Huracan and Aventador), its rather surprising that Lamborghini made it into the list – despite that, there are a number of models like the Veneno, Sesto Elemento, centenario and so on which catch a lot of attention.

3. Tesla

Like the Lamborghini, there are only 2 models being sold. However, the technologically advanced manufacturer, which includes autopilot to its cars, makes a lot of attention. 2016 has been a great year for Tesla and were looking forward to its upcoming Model 3, which was the company’s most searched for model.

2. Mercedes Benz

Honda’s Flagship!?
Wiki’s definition: “…is the lead ship in a fleet of vessels, typically the first, largest, fastest, most heavily armed, or best known”
As the most googled Honda, it doesn’t have to be the most populair Honda. With a big aftermarket and garage “tuners” who are tuning there cars based on google’s search results, it comes as no surprise that the’re on top of this list.
