AND THE 2023 A+ AWARD WINNER IS......
less than double digits at its end. Something which hasn't been seen since model year 2019. But even then the overall score for the top field was still over 80%. 2023 did not see this and with it came one of the biggest disappointments of the year.
We were happy to see a company whose owner hails from our home country, but without one (1) single model rating over 80% this year, 2023 seemed to not be the light at the end of the design tunnel we had been looking for.
This years list was made up of, you guessed it, nothing more than high performance, aftermarket and sports cars. The closest any other segment got to the top of this years list, was for a funny fact, a van from the hybrid market which hit a high of 69.50%. Seems that vans not only knocked themselves off the bottom end of our list, but have moved their way closer to the top. And with a rating of 18th overall, the Roewe iMax 8 EV van, just proves how much peril the automotive marketplace is in these days.
Today it seems that this overhaul is having a major impact on what moves around out roads, as we move away from change and into a future of only technological advances. These enhancements may seem to be what we desire and require, but how long is it going to take for the world to go back to a better looking automotive world. We all want things to change, but how long will it take for us to accept that this change doesn't look good on the outside.
2023 will go down in AutoLooks history, as the year of zero (0) true A+ awards. Only A- products made this year worth anything. If that even counts.
2023 AutoLooks A+ Award winner is....
2023 model may not be all doom and gloom for the automotive world, as this Canadian owned product, showed us that you can still look good with your top off. Say hello to the winner of AutoLooks A+ award for 2023, the 2023 Aston Martin Valkyrie Spider.
