Autotrader Names Best New Cars for 2019 Award Winners

Finding your perfect match can be difficult, and everyone is searching for that one vehicle that checks all the boxes. With more than 300 vehicle models available, this becomes a daunting task that leaves consumers with more questions than answers. The options are endless, examining vehicle technology, safety features, driving condition options, style, make, model and trim level. Autotrader can help narrow down that shopping list. After spending the past year testing nearly every model on the market, the experts at Autotrader have decided on a list of 12 vehicles that are the best of the best.

“Not only are consumers often overwhelmed by the sheer number of vehicles on the market, but they also get lost in the frenzy of constantly changing technology, features and vehicle capabilities,” said Brian Moody, executive editor of Autotrader. “Our team selected a diverse group of vehicles that will benefit car shoppers with a variety of needs and lifestyles. These vehicles are good looking and handle well, plus they have features everyone will love.”

The Autotrader 2019 Best New Cars were chosen on a wide-ranging set of criteria, including interior comfort and materials, build quality, available features and ride quality. Each vehicle was agreed upon unanimously by the entire editorial and data team at Autotrader. To be considered, a vehicle must be of the current or next model-year and available for purchase at the time of the awards announcement. We also capped the price at $75,000, meaning the cars and trucks on our list offer a significant value for the asking price. Not only was value a top priority, vehicles were also judged on available technology and a rewarding or dynamic driving experience.
