It’s that time of year again! The prestigious periodical Consumer Reports has revealed their picks for the best cars, trucks, and SUVs for 2013.  Ranging from small economy cars to luxury SUVs, the magazine ranks them all via a host of criteria.  And trust me, they don’t let anything slide.

What’s great about lists such as these is that they spell out the very best that all makes and models of vehicles have to offer.  And furthermore, that makes your CT auto insurance that much easier to purchase because you know that if you purchase a car off of this list, then chances are it’s reliable, safe, and low risk in the eyes of your independent insurance agency!

Without further adieu, here’s what you should be on the lookout for if you’re planning on purchasing a new car this year:

-Honda, a favorite among most for reliability, safety, and fuel consumption, won multiple categories with the Accord for midsize sedan, the CR-V in small SUV, and the popular family shuttle, the Odyssey, took the minivan segment.

-Surprisingly, the also popular Honda Civic was defeated by the Hynudai Elantra for best budget car and the Subaru Impreza for the compact sedan category.

-No shock here… the Toyota Pruis won for best eco-friendly automobile for a record tenth year in a row.  Toyota also claimed the best midsize SUV spot with their Highlander, and tied for best sports car with their Scion FR-S and Subaru’s BRZ.

-Moving onto more dollar signs, Audi’s A6 and BMW’s 328i won the luxury car and sports sedan categories, which they each won for a variety of reasons, but mostly for their performance, fuel consumption, and comfort of ride.

Unfortunately, the trucks and SUVs have yet to be tested by Consumer Reports, but those results should be released within the next couple of months.  As for now, if you’re looking into a new car, chances are you’ll have pretty good luck with any of the aforementioned models.  Unfortunately not a single domestic make or model was listed, so that’s a little depressing for those who love their American cars.  But overall, as long as you’re in a safe and reliable vehicle, you’ll not only safe money on repairs and your CT auto insurance, but also significantly increase the overal safety of your daily commutes.
