17 best cars you can buy

21 August 2013


From Edmunds.com
We crafted this list of the Best Cars You Can Buy, with an emphasis on the word "best." This isn't "the cars that give you the best value for your money," or "the cars that an owner survey dictated were the most reliable." It certainly is not "the cars that will most likely get you noticed outside the club." Sure, many of the cars on this list cost a pretty penny, but guess what? It usually costs more to get the best. The best hotel in Las Vegas isn't the Luxor, the best stove isn't a Whirlpool and the tastiest cookie isn't a Chips Ahoy. Fine products all, but they aren't necessarily "the best."

Now, we did throw in a few reasonably priced segments to keep our list relevant to the majority of car-buying Americans, but for the most part these are the vehicles we think are the best, period. | By James Riswick at Edmunds
