Small business owners and entrepreneurs looking to buy a new car or fleet for business this year may be interested in Consumer Reports (CR) best car picks for 2022.
Consumer Reports names the best cars of 2022
CR, which has been testing cars for more than 85 years, selects the following cars as the best bargains for 2022. The selection is based on meeting the experts’ very high standards for performance, safety, reliability and more.
For business owners looking for a cheap buy, the Nissan Sentra is the best car under $25,000, ranked by Consumer Reports. With a 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine, the car drives pleasantly with acceleration that is among the best in its class. The Sentra is agile, comfortable to drive and has a low price tag.
Nissan Rogue Sport
Number two is the Nissan Rogue Sport, which, despite its low entry-level price, has a range of safety equipment that CR says “puts the more expensive models to shame.” The review also praises the Nissan Rogue Sport for feeling more mature and beefy than most of the sub-compact SUVs it competes with.
In the $25,000 to $35,000 price range, CR ranks the Subaru Forester. The 2022 model has been given a slightly refreshed look. And the secret to the Forester’s success, CR says, is its efficiency, spacious design, high fuel economy, focus on safety, great road testing performance and strong reliability history.
With generous interior space, ample power, a pleasant ride and impressive efficiency, Consumer Reports has ranked the Honda Accord as one of the top mid-sized sedans in the top car list for 2022. Most impressive to the experts is the hybrid, which delivers 47 mpg in totally without sacrificing acceleration – an important component for business travel.
Toyota Prius and Prius Prime
Again, for small business owners looking for fuel economy, another top hybrid choice is the aerodynamic Prius which, according to the experts, continues to set the standard for fuel economy. The Prius racks up an impressive 52 mpg and is distinguished by consistent reliability and owner satisfaction.
Toyota RAV4 Prime
For small business owners and entrepreneurs looking to spend about $35,000 to $45,000, CR recommends the Toyota RAV4 Prime. With even more power, more efficiency and a comfortable ride, the experts consider the RAV4 Prime a superior model. The plug-in hybrid has an impressive 67-kilometer range, electric-only, making it a good choice for businesses that don’t do local shopping.
According to CR, the Telluride sets the standard for the popular mid-size three-row SUV market, with a test score of 97 on the road. The car is a spacious SUV, making it suitable for companies that want to transport items.
With a smooth 280hp V6 engine and a nine-speed automatic transmission, adding to the polished driving experience, the Honda Ridgeline is one of the top picks for 2022.
Ford Mustang Mach E
In the over $45,000 range, Consumer Report’s top pick is the Ford Mustang Mach-E. In the review, the Mach-E is named as a standout in this emerging category for its driving pleasure, quick acceleration, agile handling and well-mannered ride.
The last top pick of cars for 2022 is the Lexus RX, a “powertrain” that delivers the effortless, quiet performance expected of a premium SUV. Small business owners looking for reliability, safety, performance and comfort will not be disappointed with this luxury mid-sized SUV.
