There are thousands of cars on the road every day and the
people behind the wheel, though mostly satisfied with what they are driving
cannot help but check out car reviews. Surely, no one wants to miss out. We are
almost at the end of 2017 already, and though this is not a definitive list of
the best cars of the year, we have put together a list of vehicles that you
might want to see parked on your driveway, and why you should be a little
envious of people who already own them.
What It Takes to Be Tops
Overall Score: To be a Top Pick, the car must past the four key pillars: road-test performance, predicted reliability, owner satisfaction, and safety.
• Road Test: Performance for each car is rated on instrumented track tests to assessments of comfort and convenience.
• Reliability: These predictions will depend on the manufacturer’s track record or previous generations.
• Owner Satisfaction: The cars are rated on the percentage of surveyed owners who say that they would buy the same car again.
• Safety: All cars must perform well in accident-avoidance tests based on the crash test.
