Toyota wins best in 4/10 segments

What It Takes to Be the Best

A model has to have an exemplary Overall Score in its category to be a Top Pick. This single number combines road-test performance, reliability, owner satisfaction, and safety. A car that scores high in all four of these key measures is truly exterordinary.

  • Road Test: Based on more than 50 tests and evaluations
  • Reliability: How new cars will likely hold up based on problems reported by subscribers for more than half a million vehicles
  • Owner Satisfaction: Based on the percentage of surveyed owners who say they'd definitely buy the same vehicle again
  • Safety: Must perform well in accident-avoidance tests and also provide effective occupant protection in government or insurance industry crash tests
