Best Car to Buy 2014: Our Editors Choose Their Favorites

Each year, the editors of The Car Connection drive and review more than 200 new cars, trucks, SUVs, crossovers and minivans. We rate those vehicles against other new vehicles available in the same model year, and grade them by how well they perform in a number of categories: styling, performance, fuel economy, safety, comfort and utility, and features.

From those ratings, editors choose The Car Connection’s Best Car To Buy award. The award is given to the vehicle that scores the highest overall rating from editors, and also has a base price of under $50,000, including destination fees. In the case of a tie, editors name a winner based on its significance and impact, as well as its potential appeal to a wide range of shoppers, drivers, and owners.
