Top cars in our tests

Each vehicle is put through a battery of tests at our track to determine its performance and some models stand out while others do not. Our list highlights the overall top-scoring vehicles in our Ratings and those at the bottom of the pack.

You can create your own custom lists based on the factors you find most interesting by using our interactive Car Selector tool (available to online subscribers).

Overall test scores are based on more than 50 individual Consumer Reports tests and evaluations, and they are presented on a 100-point scale.
