The Best New Cars of 2013

March 14, 2013

Consumer Reports recently released their top vehicle picks for 2013 in 10 categories, from midsized sedan to sports cars. Each winner ranks at or near the top of its category when it comes to road tests, reliability and safety.

This year's winners include Honda, which did not make the list last year - but this year has a nice showing with three of its cars - Accord, CR-V and Odyssey - taking top mentions. Also on the list are BMW, Audi, Subaru, Hyundai and Scion.

When you're ready to negotiate your car purchase, I recommend using the free CarWoo Deal Finder to get the biggest discounts on these vehicles.
