Many prominent automotive sites pick their top-10 2015 cars and trucks of the year early in the year perhaps even in late in the previous year. It’s an odd practice, as if Kelley Blue Book is trying to outdo Car and Driver and Edmunds is trying to outdo Consumer Reports and vice versa.
TheWeekyDriver.com waits until the end of the year, and we’ll present our ninth annual top-10 at the end of the year.
In the meantime, since many manufactures have released their 2016 models and other carmakers are introducing 2017 models, now seems like a good time to revisit top-10 2015 vehicle list.
The list was released in February and we’re keeping the site’s name off the post, just to fair to all well-known sites. Since then, TheWeeklyDriver.com has reviewed several cars on the list. Here’s the list and brief accounts and links to the cars on the list we’ve reviewed.
Will any of the cars make The Weekly Driver’s end-of-the-year list?
The WeeklyDriver.com’s synopsis: “There’s a lot of competition in the five-seat sport sedan segment, and the new Acura TLX fits in just fine with all of its European competitors. It’s stylish, quick enough and as comfortable as its German rivals.”
“It’s hard to appreciate why the Ford F-150 pick-up truck is the biggest-selling vehicle in the country until you drive one. Then it’s easy to understand. It’s versatile. It’s got attitude. It’s in charge.”
TheWeeklyDriver.com’s synopsis:“It’s always fun to drive iconic cars. And with the ragtop down, I could have just kept driving the 2015 Ford Mustang toward to horizon for as long as it took to get there.”
The WeeklyDriver’s.com synopsis: “The moment the Honda Fit debuted in the U.S. in 2006, it was easy to like. And it still is. There’s a lot more competition, but the Fit remains exceedingly versatile and fun to drive as a subcompact with a big presence.”
TheWeeklyDriver.com’s synopsis: “Like any Lexus, driving the new Lexus defines steady performance, comfort and convenience. In some manufacturers, some styles feel comfortable and don’t require a learning curve. Every Lexus I’ve driven feels like “home” from the first drive.”
