Cool Looking Cars

Taste is a subjective thing, but elements of style aren’t. It is almost universally accepted that proportion, symmetry, shape, and other principles of design need to work in harmony to produce beautifully-crafted works of art. Car and automobile design is no exception. On this list, we’re going to look over some of the consistently best-looking car brands on the market today and decide which one is the current king of the lookers. Before we begin, we have a few basic rules. Firstly, no single-model brands. Anyone can make a one-hit wonder if it’s the only thing they have to work on. That means no Bugatti, Noble, or any number of other gorgeous single-model brands. Secondly, we’re talking about cars, which means no preference or prejudice towards trucks, SUVs, crossovers, trains, or planes. Cars only. Laslyt, we’re limiting this list to current manufacturers, considering only their current models. It would just be never ending chaos otherwise. Note: You’ll probably notice that this list of the best designed car brands skews heavily toward exotica and brands with only two or three models. That’s the nature of the beast; generic shapes designed for mass consumption usually aren’t notably pretty. At least, not compared to the well-designed car brands on this list.So read on to learn more about the best looking brands of cars and automobiles on the market today, and be sure to upvote the car companies you think are rolling out the best designs on the lot.

Peugeot 308 hatchback The Peugeot 308 doesn’t have the glamorous image of other cars on this list, which means it has to work even harder to justify its place. Peugeot has moved away from the gaping grilles it used to fit to its cars, and the latest crop look far more elegant with a chrome-edged grille and LED daytime running lights. The 308 is definitely one of the cars on this list that looks far better in the metal than it does in photographs, and it’s definitely distinctive enough to draw second glances. The interior is far better than you’d expect too, with handsome styling in a minimalist environment. Peugeot has moved most of the buttons to a central touchscreen, which looks great, but takes some getting used to. Some might not get on with the small steering wheel either, as this is designed to be looked over, rather than through, when viewing the dashboard dials. Still, it’s refreshing to find a mainstream manufacturer trying something different with such an important model and the 308 is a success.

1 Of 100 100. Jaguar XJS (1975–1996)The successor to the iconic E-Type, the XJS was a great-looking car in its own right.

Cadillac The entirety of ’50s automotive fashion in America can practically be summed up in the ’59 Cadillac.

Mercedes-Benz 540K (1935–1940)The 540K marked a distinct change in style from its predecessor, the 500K.

Looking every bit the part of a budget Ferrari, each curve on the 4C’s voluptuous body relates directly to some specific function of the car.

Both versions, the Coupe and the Spider convertible, are easily among this year’s best looking cars.
