Best Cars

Check out the best cars, as rated by Digital Trends’ expert reviewers.

It’s 2014, not 1914: Virtually every new car is “good.” But which is merely “good enough” and which is the best? Digital Trends has the answer. We’ve driven most every car on the road, and we’ve compiled our top 10 favorites. Intriguingly, it’s not all high-end luxury and supercars; a Subaru and a pickup made the list, too. So no matter what kind of car you’re in the market for, we’ve picked a favorite.

Our best cars list is continually updated as we review new products that enter the market.
