Each year Car and Driver magazine compiles a top 10 list of the best cars of the year. The deciding factors include car predictability, a great price and a winning physique. Each manufacturer must provide a sample for testing and the car must be ready for sale by January. Editors from every walk of life and age are invited to give the cars a rigorous check and input their findings. Cars nominated include those that won the previous year and those that are new or have an all new redesign. Making this elite list 22 times, the Honda Accord is a reliable choice for any car buyer. The BMW 3 Series has made the list 17 times and the Corvette appeared on the list 14 times.
