These are the Top Cars of 2016
Choosing the right car can be a daunting task—there are just so many options. Luckily for us, Consumer Reports does the heavy lifting each year by compiling a list of the top cars to buy in America in 10 categories based on performance, reliability, owner satisfaction, and of course, safety. The 2016 list is in, and it's filled with great options worth considering, whether you're looking for a pickup, luxury SUV, or a nice family minivan.
Improving on the two titles it earned last year, Toyota took three spots on the new list and tied with Kia for the highest overall score. TIME points out that only two of the top 10 cars are made stateside (the Ford F150 and the Chevy Impala), with the other eight hailing from South Korea and Japan.
The cars and categories as chosen by Consumer Reports are listed below. Check out the video above to hear more about why each was chosen over the competition.
