10 Best Car Brands in 2018

1 of 13

We Rank the Best Car Brands of 2018

Finding the perfect car can seem like finding a needle in a haystack, but your search can be easier if you focus on just a few brands. Dozens of manufacturers sell cars in America, but not all brands are created equal – some have multiple vehicles that excel in their classes.

Our Best Car Brand Awards recognize manufacturers with the best overall scores for their car models, not trucks, SUVs, or minivans. They are based on our new car rankings, which are drawn from the consensus of America’s automotive press and are an objective evaluation of each brand’s quality, performance, and value.

Be aware that our scores can change over time as we process and analyze new data, so be sure to look at the latest reviews for the most up-to-date scores.

Take a look at the following slides to see who tops this year’s list of top car brands, listed from tenth place to our No. 1 Best Car Brand winner.
