When car shopping, for most of us, it starts online. And if you are in the market, right now with it being tax season, checking out helpful hits from Cars.com is a great place to begin. Cars.com is giving us a look at their list of this year’s top car choices. So many brands make changes to their auto body styles, tech upgrades, and both major and minor improvements. Automakers redesign or introduce a few dozen of those cars, and in each of the past nine years, Cars.com has given one of those models our highest accolade known as the Cars.com Best Of Award. The list of vehicles included the Honda Accord, a new Honda Civic Type R, the sexy all-new Kia Stinger, a super luxurious SUV in the redesigned Volvo XC60, and two new practical family haulers in the redesigned Volkswagen Tiguan and all-new Atlas.
Cars.com: The Best of 2018
The Volkswagen Atlas.
Steady gas prices in recent years have rekindled shoppers’ love affair with SUVs. But the Atlas isn’t just a winner because of what it is; it’s a winner for how it does it. The Atlas boasts a cavernous interior with three adult-friendly rows of seats, an intuitive multimedia system, excellent scores in Cars.com’s Car Seat Check and reasonably good drivability. Indeed, it stood head and shoulders above other crowd favorites in Cars.com’s 2017 Three-Row SUV Challenge.
Throw in Volkswagen’s outstanding new warranty for 2018, and the Atlas marries all of that practicality with a lot of value. It was a close match this year among six contenders for Cars.com’s Best Of award, but when the dust settled, Volkswagen took home the title.
What I like about Cars.com™ is that it offers a two-sided digital automotive marketplace connecting buyers and sellers. They began as a pioneer in online automotive classifieds, and since then, the company has evolved into one of the largest digital automotive platforms, connecting thousands of local dealers and customers across the country. They have a comprehensive set of pricing and research tools, and the largest database of consumer reviews in the industry, helping Cars.com is transforming the car shopping experience via their website or mobile app.
