Consumer Reports has released its annual list of their favorite 2016 model year vehicles. While these cars fall into several different categories, the magazine determines which are the best based on how they excel in extensive tests, as well as how they rank in reliability, safety and owner satisfaction. So whether you’re shopping for a compact car or a pickup truck, Consumer Reports has provided some generous food for thought with their 10 top picks for the year.
Honda Fit – Best Subcompact Car
Overall Score: 67
A popular choice for first time car buyers, the subcompact Fit has excellent fuel economy (33 mpg), nimble handling and a spacious interior that make it convenient for holding cargo. While road noise and a rough ride may fatigue passengers on long trips, satisfaction among owners is high. The Fit also comes standard-equipped with a rear-view camera, and crash-test scores of the vehicle have improved over the previous model.
