Best New Cars Ranked by Consumer Reports
November 7, 2013
Tesla, BWM and Audi have ranked in the top three spots in Consumer Reports' recent ranking of top scoring cars.
The Tesla Model S took the crown with an overall test score of 99 on a 100-point scale - the highest ever achieved by any vehicle. The BWM 135i followed quickly behind in the Number 2 spot with an overall score of 97, while the Audi A7 3.0 TDI scored a 96 for the third spot on the list.
If you're considering one of these top-scoring vehicles, I recommend you use the free CarWoo Deal Finder to get the best deal possible. And be sure to check out TrueCar Pre-Negotiated Prices to compare real prices where you live.
