Safe, Sporty & Steep; 2019's Best Vehicles

What are the best vehicles out there for 2019? There are a lot to choose from, but as is always the case, it depends on what you need, what you want, and of course, what you can spend. Safety is always a good place to start. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the Subaru Impreza, Acura TLX, and Kia Optima are the top rated 2019 sedans when it comes to safety. The Nissan Pathfinder, Ford Escape and Honda Pilot top the SUV list.

For overall quality we compared lists compiled by Edmunds, Road & Track and Motor Trend. Among the highest rated mid-size sedans for 2019 is the Honda Accord. The Honda Odyssey is considered the best minivan. For electric plug-in hybrids, the Chevy Volt gets good reviews. The top two trucks are the Ford F-150 series (also the most popular vehicle) and the Dodge Ram 1500. The Porsche 911 gets the nod as 2019’s top luxury sport coupe.

What caught our eye and surprised us was the Cullinan, introduced this year. It’s the most expensive ($325,000 base price, $400,000+ with options) and most lavishly appointed off-road-capable vehicle ever built. It’s a four-wheel drive Rolls Royce. We kid you not.
