Good Housekeeping joined forces with Car and Driver magazine to vet 100 new vehicles, then narrowed it down to 25, then announced winners in seven categories. These categories include Hybrid, compact, luxury compact, sedan, luxury sedan, crossover SUV, and electric. Good Housekeeping engineers drove 1,200 miles to test drive vehicles on test tracks as well as the open road and paid close attention to value, safety, handling, interior design comfort and on board technology of these vehicles.
“It’s a money-saving hybrid with a sleek, futuristic design,” says Good Housekeeping. “The knockout gas mileage you can expect from a Prius improves with every new model, and this one is no exception.”
