We Bid January Adieu, and Clock Your Favorite Reviews

While the rest of the automotive world awaits January sales figures next week--we’re betting some will be up, some will be down--the back-end elves here have been poring over server logs to see which vehicle reviews were the most popular in January.

There’s no huge surprise to find out that the bloodlust-red Audi S5 we drove late last year tops the list. Our road test underscores an oddly delightful fact about the hot-rod Audi two-door: that from its engine note to its daring (well, daring for Germans) body, it’s as close as Bavaria will get to building a Chevy Camaro.

And it’s not a big mystery that Saab’s popular Convertible came in second, despite having just a couple weeks on the site. Since it bowed in the 1980s, the Saab convertible’s found a dedicated following that prefers its four-seat cabin and Swedish style to the harder-edged convertibles from BMW.

We do confess to having a “whoa” moment when the Pontiac Torrent came in third--but it was our first full road test of the crossover. The ’09 Toyota Corolla and the current Jeep Patriot rounded out the top five.

Here are the top ten road tests, with a note - these are cars put through a full road test by TCC’s expert reviewers. Tomorrow, we’ll tell you about the most popular vehicles we covered last month.
