Consumer Reports annual auto issue now online

Consumer Reports News: February 28, 2008 10:58 AM

Consumer Reports has rolled out its annual auto issue features and data at ConsumerReports.org. This release follows the site unveiling a redesign of the Cars channel just days prior.

With the April issue content, the latest findings are collected into a special section to ease navigation. The data itself is reflected in ratings charts, the updated New Car Selector, and model overview pages—all available to online subscribers.

Videos of the 2008 Top Picks are posted, joining the latest road test and crash tests videos in the expanding multimedia offerings.
