A good car is one that fulfills its intended brief, so whether it’s an SUV or a coupé, it should do what it says on the tin, and it should do it better than its closest competitors. Reliability is another important element. Marry all these factors and you’ll have the makings of a great car. It should be good to drive, comfortable to ride in, and affordable to run.
There are so many options to choose from at dealerships. From high-end pickup trucks to entry-level hatches and everything in between. Here are a few favorites from every class:
What is there not to love about the Ford F-150 Raptor. It may have downgraded its exhaust note when Ford moved to the 3.5-liter V6 EcoBoost, but that exhaust note sacrifice came with more power.
The latest generation of Ram pickup is a combination of comfort, space, and utility. Its large infotainment screen and other tech comforts have turned the truck into a consummate tech marvel instead of a workhorse.
The Mazda CX-5 is one of the more fun-to-drive crossovers on the market. It punches above its weight in terms of comfort and interior quality, which only adds to its sound driving characteristics.
The BMW X3 is an absolute winner. It’s perceived quality is above that of almost all others and its on-road manners are hard to fault, even on run-flat tires.
The Toyota Yaris. The Yaris boasts the kind of exceptional fuel economy that can save you money in the long run and while it isn’t the quickest at the track, it feels capable in everyday driving.
The Volkswagen Golf GTI is always consistent, at any price point. It’s powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four making 228 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque and offers a six-speed manual transmission.
The Hyundai Veloster N deserves a ton of praise too. Lower priced than the Honda Civic Type R, you get similar performance for a lighter monthly payment.
The BMW 2 Series comes with two turbocharged engines (one four-cylinder, one six-cylinder) that can both be coupled to a six-speed manual transmission. Ideal for car enthusiasts with more engaging driving dynamics.
Toyota has revived the legendary Supra name and its brilliant performance to go along with it. It has a turbocharged six-cylinder engine that makes up to 335 horsepower.
The Mercedes-Benz E-Class delivers the same level of polish and panache as Benz’s flagship, with exceptional interior materials, a quiet cockpit, and a composed ride.
The MX-5 Miata is not the fastest sports car, but its lightweight and nimble nature make it fun to drive. If you’re looking for a nice weekend driver, Miata is the answer.
Chrysler Pacifica is one of the best you can find. Available with a traditional powertrain or a hybrid variant. Both are more than adequate at fulfilling all of your minivan-related needs.
Hyundai Kona Electric. Its long driving range makes the 2020 Kona Electric one of the best electric vehicles on sale today. It has a driving range of up to 258 miles per charge and can recharge its battery fairly quickly.
