2014 Autos Spotlight

Last updated: March 2014

Welcome to the 2014 Autos Spotlight, where we highlight our annual Top Picks, car brand report cards, and much, much more.  

Consumer Reports is the world’s largest independent consumer-product-testing organization. We also survey millions of consumers about their experiences with products and services. We’re based in Yonkers, N.Y., and operate a full auto-test facility in Connecticut.  

The Ratings and reviews presented here, and elsewhere on, are based on the most comprehensive independent auto-testing program and reliability information of any U.S. publication or website.

As a nonprofit organization, we work for you, the consumer—not advertisers or outside interests. You'll find comprehensive road tests, reliability reports, buying advice, and more here online to aid your next car purchase.
