Car Rankings & Analytics

Please feel free to leave a comment - do you agree with my rankings? All data is subjectively rated by me on a scale of 1 (worst) to 10 (best).

How to interpret the graphs

1) Horizontal X-Axis: "Left Brain"
  • Feature functionality
  • Driveability (engine, performance, braking, etc.)
  • Technology
  • Practicality / amount of space
  • Reliability / build quality
  • Fuel economy
2) Vertical Y-Axis: "Right Brain"
  • Exterior design
  • Interior design
  • Brand cachet
  • "Impress the ladies factor" (Is it cool?)
3) Size of bubbles: "Popularity"
  • I subjectively rated each vehicle on a scale of 1-10 based on how ubiquitous the cars are on the road. A Toyota Camry would receive a 10, whereas an Aston Martin Rapide would receive a 1. This is subjective and not based on real sales data.
4) Color scheme: "Location"
  • Blue=USA
  • Red=Japan
  • Yellow=Germany
  • White=South Korea
  • Green=UK
  • Black=Sweden
