The Turo community’s favorite cars

With many thousands of models available on Turo, sometimes the options can seem nearly endless. Luckily, the “Favorite” feature allows you to save cars to your wish list for future adventures, or share with your friends for road trip inspiration. After taking a look at the data, we’ve compiled the Turo community’s most-favorited models on the marketplace!

Looking at the number of listings of every model on Turo, and the number of times people have added each model to their favorites list, we pulled together a list of the all-time most popular cars among the community. The following 10 models have the highest average number of favorites per listing on Turo. Or, put another way, these are the models people are most likely to add to their favorites list.

While common cars like the BMW 3 Series and Toyota Camry have been favorited more often by sheer volume, travelers are more drawn to save high-performance sports cars, exotic supercars, and luxury grand tourers at a higher clip. These exciting cars make for memorable experiences, and no doubt many are saving them for when they have a special occasion coming up.

In case you haven’t given it a try, you can save cars to your favorites by tapping the heart on the listing page. Without further adieu, here are the most-favorited cars on Turo!

1. Lamborghini Huracán

Mahmoud’s 2020 Lamborghini Huracán Evo (Los Angeles, CA)

Travelers around the Turo community are most likely to add the Lamborghini Huracán to their favorites over any other vehicle. And who can blame us? This aggressive exotic is incredibly dramatic, with heaps of Italian flair and supercar performance to match. And as the “baby Lambo,” it’s also the most common Lamborghini model on Turo. The current Huracán’s 5.2L V10 engine puts out over 600 horsepower and has the roaring exhaust note to let everyone know it.

2. Porsche 718 Boxster

Wilber’s 2017 Porsche 718 Boxster (Miami, FL)

The exquisite Porsche 718 Boxster is next up. The Boxster (renamed 718 Boxster for the current generation) only comes as a convertible, perhaps giving it a bump over its more focused sibling, the Porsche Cayman, a couple spots down this list. The Boxster boasts Porsche appeal, is relatively easy to drive, and is an all-around excellent mid-engined sports car for enthusiasts and laypeople alike, making it a perfectly reasonable number two most-favorited model.

3. BMW i8

Sumit’s 2017 BMW i8 (Cambridge, MA)

Sadly, BMW discontinued the exotic i8 last year after six years of production. This flashy plug-in hybrid was an early pioneer for hybrid sports cars, and though the i8 has most of the hallmarks of a high-performance supercar, it’s more of a futuristic-style grand tourer. Still, its ostentatious dihedral doors, flying buttresses, and street-shark shape give the BMW i8 all the appeal it needs for people of all walks to save it for a sunny and special day.

4. Porsche 718 Cayman

Tiff’s 2018 Porsche 718 Cayman (Groveport, OH)

Like the Boxster, the Porsche Cayman sits at the more approachable end of the Porsche sports car range. Though the mid-engined Cayman is known as a driver-oriented canyon-carver, you can find examples with both automatic and manual transmissions on Turo, as well as four- and six-cylinder engine options. For those who relish driving, the Cayman offers a famously joyous on-road experience, and looks the business, too.

5. Aston Martin Vantage

Bryan’s 2020 Aston Martin Vantage (Paoli, PA)

In the looks department, you’d be hard-pressed to find a more alluring car than the “entry-level” Aston. The Vantage is about as gorgeous as cars get, and also carries itself with swagger thanks to the twin-turbo AMG V8 it hides under its seductive bodywork. This dashing super-GT will leave anyone feeling like James Bond pulling up to the valet.

6. Jaguar F-Type

Daniel’s 2020 Jaguar F-Type (Miami, FL)

This classically beautiful British coupe is a rival to sports cars like the Boxster, Cayman, and Corvette. While the latest version comes only with a supercharged V8, you can find past models with four- or six-cylinder engines on Turo, allowing the F-Type to cater to a whole range of power appetites. With the smaller engines, the Jaguar F-Type is a stylish and sporty cruiser, and if you want to turn the excitement to 11, the pugnacious 575-horsepower F-Type SVR will loudly do the trick.

7. Alfa Romeo Stelvio

Mark’s 2018 Alfa Romeo Stelvio (North Miami, FL)

The fist SUV on the list! Alfa Romeo is still a bit of an enigmatic brand for the average American driver, and the Stelvio’s Italian style might help make for a more memorable experience while still offering the convenience and comfort of a family crossover. If we had to guess why the Stelvio is among such exclusive company, it’s because it treats your senses to more delights than most other vehicles in its segment.

8. Audi Q8

Andrey’s 2019 Audi Q8 (Los Angeles, CA)

Audi’s new flagship crossover SUV is definitely a vehicle for today’s drivers. Our featured car of the month last December is a modern all-wheel-drive family hauler that boasts quite a sleek and athletic design. The Audi interior is packed with the latest gadgets, ambient lighting, and a panoramic sunroof, likely helping the Q8 skyrocket in popularity among the Turo community.

9. Lexus LC 500

Benjamin’s 2018 Lexus LC 500 (San Diego, CA)

Lexus’ top-of-the-line grand tourer appears both elegant and sporty, and presents a distinguished option for a weekend getaway or business trip. Compared to rivals like the Porsche 911, the LC isn’t a serious performance car, but it is a far more comfortable and luxurious place to sit. Its Lexus interior is exceptionally well appointed with rich materials and the latest tech features, and will give you major CEO vibes behind the wheel.

10. Bentley Continental GTC

Adam’s 2020 Bentley Continental (Lomita, CA)

The Bentley Continental line embodies a show-and-go approach to ultra-luxury grand touring. This Bentley’s interior is nearly unmatched, pampering its occupants with lavish wood paneling, handsome leathers, and shiny accents galore. Interestingly, this convertible version (the “C” in GTC) beat out the fixed-roof Continental GT by many places on this list — all the better to be seen when cruising Sunset Boulevard, the Las Vegas strip, or the beaches of Miami.
