Car and Driver announces 10 Best Cars awards
Ann Arbor, Michigan – Car and Driver has announced the winners of its 26th annual 10 Best Cars sold in America list. General Motors made a strong showing with three models, while other domestic carmakers dropped off the list.
In alphabetical order, with the number of times each model has made the list, the 2008 winners are the BMW 3 Series (17), Cadillac CTS (1), Chevrolet Corvette (14), Chevrolet Malibu (1), Honda Accord (22), Honda Fit (2), Mazda MX-5 (9), Mazdaspeed3 (2), Porsche Boxster/Cayman (9) and the Volkswagen GTI (3).
“The increased competition between domestic and foreign manufacturers has created a tougher annual contest, but the eight repeat winners deserve accolades for continuing to deliver outstanding quality, performance, value and driver satisfaction,” said editor-in-chief Csaba Csere. “Last year, we saw a return of the small car to the list. This year, the strong showing by General Motors proves that the company’s stable management and consistent strategy is really starting to pay off. For the new Chevy Malibu to make our lists demonstrates that, for the first time in about twenty years, GM can compete with the likes of Toyota and Honda in the important family sedan segment.”
