The best cars have always offered more than the sum of their parts, and that’s a factor in the pleasure – or the pain – of buying and owning them. Still, there are always compromises to be made, and it’s helpful to know where they’re made.
By comparing the best cars in individual Driver Power categories, we can highlight the top performers in areas such as value, reliability, safety, ride and handling, infotainment and more. In fact, we divided the survey into nine separate categories, each with multiple subsections, allowing us to extract the most information from our survey responses.
You can see the top-performing cars by category on the following pages, but remember that a top score doesn’t mean a car is the best at a given task – rather that its owners rate it higher than rivals in terms of satisfaction with the work it does. is doing. doing. Because let’s face it, when you buy an SUV, you don’t need to know if it drives like a sports car, but if buyers like you say it delivers the goods.
