We know which new cars, trucks and crossovers we like the best--but which ones are your favorites?
Here at TheCarConnection, we've begun the labor of love that is reviewing new cars. As always, for the 2011 model year, we're bringing you full reviews that give you our take on styling, performance, comfort, safety and features, with a numeric score.
This year we're doing things a little differently, and a little better. We're still reviewing almost every new vehicle on the market, but we're also bringing them to you in a new, easy-to-read format with more of the information you need to make an informed decision.
And now that we're hip-deep in the newest vehicles on the road, we've taken a look at the most visited new-car review pages on TheCarConnection. The results don't surprise us much, given the popularity of cars from Ford and Kia on the sales charts. But would you have guessed a Swedish SUV would be among the top ten car reviews on TCC?
For the month of July, these are the most popular car reviews here at High Gear Media, along with our bottom line:
2010 Kia Soul: The 2010 Kia Soul outsmarts fun urban wagons like the Scion xB and Nissan Cube with uniquely kicky styling, more room, and an easygoing attitude.
2010 Kia Forte: The 2010 Kia Forte is a strong contender in every way—a surprisingly good-looking, enjoyable-to-drive car that will hold the budget down.
2011 Ford Fiesta: If you're set on stylish and small, the Fiesta might be your only choice, though you might miss the solid, roomy feel of a Fit.
2011 Ford Mustang: The Mustang lives up to all those juvenile, tire-smoking pony-car expectations; at the same time, it’s an unexpectedly capable, sophisticated coupe.
2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee: The Grand Cherokee is one capable, good-looking crossover—and a welcome sign of life from .
2010 Hyundai Tucson: The 2010 Hyundai Tucson doesn't quite take the title of best small crossover, but it handily grabs "most improved" honors.
2011 Toyota Sienna: The Sienna adds room and adult-duty second-row seats, but leaves ultimate flexibility and entertainment to the competition.
2010 Volvo XC60: The 2010 Volvo XC60 brings unexpected style and a heavy dose of safety technology to families with all-weather needs.
2010 Ford Fusion: If you seek proof that Detroit in general, and Ford in particular, can build a comfortable, high-quality, fine-driving, and hyper-efficient sedan that is more than competitive, look to the 2010 Ford Fusion.
2010 Honda Fit: Look beyond the appearance of the 2010 Honda Fit, which admittedly won’t quicken pulses. Honda nails the rest with the peppy, spacious, and frugal Fit.
