8 Practical and Fun Choices for Your Daily Trip to Work

The commuter car is often referred to dismissively by automotive journalists, but millions of Americans count on their cars for one thing: to get them from point A to point B. However, just because you're looking for a practical car doesn't mean you have to settle for something that's below average.

To find the best commuter cars, concentrate on compact or midsize sedans, which provide good fuel economy and are comfortable for both the driver and passengers. If you have a long commute, you’ll probably want to avoid compact crossovers, which give you more cargo versatility at the cost of lower fuel efficiency. The new car rankings from U.S. News & World Report can help any commuter find great options to consider.
