Car & Driver's 10 Best Cars for 2010

The list is out.

Every year, Car & Driver magazine announces its 10 best cars of the new model year and the list is out and once again US car companies only managed to get 2 cars onto the list, the Cadillac CTS and the Ford Fusion Hybrid.

Making the list for 2010: Audi S4, BMW 3 series and M3, Cadillac CTS - CTS-V, Ford Fusion Hybrid, Honda Accord, Honda Fit, Mazda MX 5 - Miata, Mazda 3 - Mazdaspeed 3, Porsche Boxster - Cayman, VW GTI.

18 Car & Driver editors rated vehicles on a scale of 1 to 100, with a focus on performance, driving satisfaction and value. The only requirement was that the vehicles be available in the US in January 2009 and priced below $80,000.

We can't fault the selection, when viewed against our lemon car cases either. While the Cadillac line has had its lemons, the CTS is not one we've run across. Same for the rest of the roster, except for the Honda Accord, which has seen its share of lemons in our files. But the rest of the list we heartily agree with.

If you are looking at buying a new car and don't want to end up with a lemon, the Car and Driver Ten Best Cars list is a good place to start. Just watch out for that Accord.
