Here Are the Top 2018 Vehicles in Our Rankings

New year, new car. If that is your motto for 2018, you’ve come to the right place. We’ve gone through our car, SUV, and truck rankings and found the best of the best for 2018.

To make this list, We tracked every vehicle throughout 2017 and tallied how many total weeks each spent at No. 1 in its respective segment. The models that spent the most weeks ranked at the head of their respective classes made the cut.

Our new car rankings are based on the consensus opinion of the automotive press, as well as third-party safety and reliability data. Five components make up a vehicle’s overall score: Performance, Interior, Critic's Rating, Safety, and Reliability. We combine these scores in a formula that is based on what new car shoppers say matters most to them in a new vehicle. The result is an overall score for each new car on a 1 to 10 scale.
