Can You Guess The Most Googled Car Brands Of 2016?


These are the brands that people were curious about this year.

Every year, Google publishes the results of the most searched terms on its website. For 2016, the most searched term was Powerball, the most search person was Donald Trump, and the most searched actor was Brad Pitt. These were all pretty interesting, and you can check out all of the most Googled terms in the company's full report. However, we were most interested in what the most searched car brands were in 2016. Back in 2014, Ford topped the list after revealing both the Mustang and F-150 that year. This year, Honda was the most searched brand.

We would assume that the new Civic drove many people to search for Honda, especially with the new Type R set to finally arrive in the US. Mercedes-Benz was second thanks to exciting news about a rumored hypercar and the X-Class pickup truck. Tesla came in third, which is no surprise given the nearly constant flow of news regarding the upcoming gigafactory, affordable Model 3, and Auto Pilot-related crashes. The top 10 is rounded out by Lamborghini, Volvo, Ford, Jaguar, Bentley, Maserati, and Rolls-Royce. We assume that people were curious about the SUVs from Lamborghini, Jaguar, Bentley, Maserati, and Rolls-Royce, which proves how popular SUVs really are.
