Here's a quick-reference guide to all of Consumer Reports' Ratings, from testing and safety scores to reliability and owner-satisfaction information. These ratings lists let you see how a model compares with its competitors in various attributes, so that you can more easily choose the right vehicle for you.
These are vehicles that meet Consumer Reports' stringent testing, reliability, and safety standards. To earn our recommendation, noted with vehicles must perform well in our testing, have average or better reliability; and, if crash tested, provide an adequate overall safety Rating. This Rating is a composite of accident-avoidance from our testing, and crash protection based on crash tests administered by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). In addition, pickups and SUVs must not have tipped up in the government's rollover test.
Vehicles are listed by category, so that you can easily see how they compare with competitive models.
