    Well there's an Audi.

    Other than that quite a good list given the US market. By the way did the cars had to be introduced this year, or just on sale?

    On sale as, there are long streaks of continuous winners - the 3 series has won 19 years in a row, and the Accord is on the list for it's 24th time.

    yeah, got my copy yesterday... not a single surprise. C&D is rather unremarkable.

    surprisingly there is no corvette on list, unless i missed something.

    the vette is pretty consistent on the 10 best list

    Not a surprising list, I agree.

    I do like Car and Driver more than Motortrend though.

    Always hated the Ten Best issue.

    C & D's best days were in the 70's an 80's IMO.

    I would think the Ford Fiesta is better than the Honda Fit...

    Road and Track can be, but I havent read them in a few years. But honestly, no. Hence I pay over $100 for a CAR subscription.

    Motortrend is very American biased- look at their Car of the Year awards- I believe up until the late 90's, they had Import Car of the Year, until they folded it in with COTY.

    A couple of years Motortrend had duds- the freaking new Thunderbird won one year. WTF?

    And one review of the new Accord really pissed me off. They praised the crap out of it when they reviewed the car on its own, one of those "first glance" reviews.

    And then they paired it with the Camry and totally smashed it to bits. It's like they did a 180 degree turn.
