We have gotten our hands on a list of the top cars that are fun to drive. The list was compiled by Consumer Reports, which are very reliable, after they have conducted at least 50 evaluations on each of the vehicles. They look for performance, safety, comfort, convenience, interior quality, fuel economy, and cargo capacity.
Here are the top vehicles that received the highest scores:
The WRX features race car-like handling and a relatively good ride. For 2006 the updated 2.5-liter turbocharged engine adds more power and provides quick and effortless acceleration. Subaru’s well-tuned suspension offers a compliant ride, but it can easily slide its tail at its limits. The standard all-wheel drive provides secure all-season traction.
At the New York International Auto Show in April, consumers will finally be getting their first look at the 2008 Infiniti G35 Coupe. The conservatively styled new G35 sedan impressed people enough to take a spot on the 2007 10Best Cars list, and they are eager to try on the coupe.
Judging from this preliminary sketch and the look of the sedan, many consumers do not expect a major change in the appearance of the car. Yet they do expect a honing of the previous look accompanied by significant changes to what you don’t see, but feel.
The QX56 comes with one of the most powerful V8s in the class. It’s an excellent choice among full-size SUVs for towing a heavy trailer while hauling seven passengers in luxurious comfort. And it offers serious off-road capability, an area where Nissan has a lot of experience. The QX56 is based on the full-size Nissan Titan pickup and Armada SUV.
The Infiniti QX56 offers seating for seven or eight and is rated to tow 8,900-9,000 pounds. Nissan’s 5.6-liter 32-valve engine generates more torque than the V8s in the 2006 Cadillac Escalade and Lincoln Navigator.
