How many vehicles did Autotrader test drive?

We’ve driven hundreds of cars. We’ve logged thousands of test miles. We’ve been on open highways, winding back roads, crowded city streets and rutted dirt trails. While your office gets into arguments about sports or politics, we fight about leather-seat thickness and alloy-wheel design. And it’s all for a good reason: our list of 10 must test drive cars for 2016.

Compiling our list wasn’t easy. We’ve whittled down dozens of cars we’ve driven this year into just 10 winners, with a few key criteria in mind. Namely, each car on our list has to offer some unexpected benefits, touting traits and attributes that should change the way you think about the vehicle in question and perhaps even about the overall brand itself.
