Most of the awards recognizing the best vehicles of 2021 have already been announced, starting with The Car Guide’s top picks.
Consumer Reports, which is another trusted source for North American car buyers, has just published its own annual list.
“We put thousands of miles on each test car and evaluate them for how people actually use them,” says Jake Fisher, head of auto testing at Consumer Reports. “That means we care more about how your next car or SUV performs when it comes to safety, comfort, and fuel efficiency than how quickly it can circle a race track.”
Each of the website’s award-winning vehicles must come standard with forward collision warning and automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection.
