Hey there, folks, grab a seat and let’s shake hands. My name is John Dean, and I’m gonna be your guide into the Us News Best Cars 2015 list. Everybody in the United States knows the USnews.com – it’s informative, on point, and hassle-free. We are car fans around here, so, today I’m gonna talk to you about the Best Cars blog’s 2015 Best Cars For The Money list.
The Respected Source
Best Cars is a respected resource in the automobile world, so, it’s wise to listen to what they have to say about 2015’s stand-out brands. Before I started this blog, I used to visit this site a lot – to check out new articles, review, expert opinions, etc. The Us News Best Cars 2015 list – and any other year’s list – is based on the expert reviews of the automobile press about a brand’s powertrain, interior and exterior features and comfort, as well as safety and reliability ratings. Yep, this is the real deal.
State Of Affairs
Today new car sales are off the charts, and the solid demand created a boost in the average new car’s pricing. Going cheap isn’t a good idea, ’cause, even though you could safe some money, you’ll run the risk of getting an uncomfortable cabin, old technological features and an overall bad performance. You’ll be disappointed with each mile you drive. And – like that wasn’t enough – you might face costly repairs, and end up spending more of the budget than if you would get a bit pricier, but more reliable brand.
The Us News Best Cars 2015 list talks about 21 autocar categories, so, it’s like the best place to pick out a great vehicle that’s also gonna be a fair value and a match for your lifestyle. If you’re looking to buy a big-bad Truck, or a family sedan/SUV, than the Us News Best Cars 2015 list is your best friend at hand. And me – I’m gonna be the conductor between the two of you – you wouldn’t even know about the Us News Best Cars 2015 list, if it wasn’t for me, right?
Us News Best Cars 2015 – The Winners Circle
Alright, let’s get into it. Gotta say upfront, I’m not gonna make a full review on each of the 21 winners – that’s gonna take a lot of ink. Instead, we’re just gonna have a quick run up the ladders, saying hello to almost all of the price holders, and some of the contestants.
Ok, Best Subcompact Car is Honda Fit – no surprise there – it’s an overall great and affordable vehicle (Kia Rio and Ford Fiesta are 2nd and 3rd; personally, I’d move Toyota’s Prius and Yaris up the ladder, ’cause they deserve it)
Best Compact Car – Volkswagen Golf (Mazda Mazda 3 and Honda Civic are 2nd and 3rd – I agree).
Best Hatchback – Honda Fit (yep, that’s the second win for the Fit today).
Upscale Small Cars winner is the Audi 3.
Best Midsize Car – Hyundai Sonata. My opinion differs. I’d put Toyota’s Camry on the pedestal (it’s #2 currently), and Honda’s Accord as the close second.
Best Upscale Midsize Car – Acura TLX. Right now it’s number 5 in the list, and Cadillac GTS holds the number one spot – that seems more fair. Lexus GS is second, and Mercedes E-Class is third.
The Best Large Car is the Chevrolet Impala – I approve – Chevy did it big this time, it’s an almost perfect large sedan. Toyota’s Avalon and Avalon Hybrid are 2nd and 3rd in the list.
The Best Hybrid Car is Toyota’s Camry Hybrid. Ford Fusion is second, and Toyota Prius C is 3rd. If it was up to me, I’d switch Camry with the Prius – I think that’d be more appropriate.
Best Sports car is Volkswagen GTI, and the Best Wagon is Subaru Outback.
As for trucks, we got Ram 1500 as the Best Full-Size Truck. Not sure about the #1 spot, but I’d definitely wedge Toyota’s Tundra in there somewhere (it’s #5 right now).
Best Mid-Size Truck – Chevrolet Colorado; the second and third places go out to GMC Canyon and Toyota Tacoma.
Best 3-Row SUV – Hyundai Santa Fe. Toyota Highlander is the finalist.
Best Minivan – Mazda Mazda5. Honda’s Odyssey is placed second, and the Toyota Sienna is the third. I’d switch 3rd with second – I firmly believe the Sienna is a better choice for the mid-class citizens.
The Best Hybrid SUV, according to the Us News Best Cars 2015 list is Toyota’s Highlander Hybrid (it’s a well-deserved win). Lexus RX Hybrid is the close second.
Best Compact SUV – Honda CR-V.
And finally, Best Large SUV – Mazda CX-9. The other two are Chevy’s Traverse, and the Dodge Durango.
Alright, guys, that was my sneak peek into the Us News Best Cars 2015 list. It’s a well thought after catalogue, so I suggest you take a closer look at it the next time you’re in the market for a brand-new vehicle. Good luck with your purchases!
