The Edmunds Testing Team evaluates approximately 200 new vehicles each year to determine their list of Top Rated Vehicles. Each vehicle is driven on a standardized road test loop and a test track for instrumented testing in controlled conditions. The team’s time behind the wheel is used to develop ratings that grade how a car stacks up against its direct rivals in a particular size and price class. The “Edmunds.com Top Rated Awards” are given to those vehicles that receive an “A” rating.
