Road tests: Head-to-head comparisons

The following list lets you quickly access vehicle details in our model overviews (available to subscribers). For vehicles that we've recently tested, you can also read the current road test.

CR's Recommended models are noted with a check. To earn our recommendation, vehicles must have performed well in CR's tests, have average or better reliability, and, if crash-tested, provide good overall crash protection based on our composite of insurance-industry and government crash tests. Vehicles also must not have tipped up in the government rollover test or, if not tested, must have available electronic stability control.

Don't buy: We label products with this icon when we judge them to be safety risks or to have serious performance problems.
