1. Best Mid-Size Car - Toyota Camry

In Consumer's Report's latest survey of new cars, the Toyota Camry is recognized for delivering outstanding reliability. Although the car does not take any major leaps forward in styling, its solid looks score marks for being "plain vanilla," and as they point out, there are many people who like vanilla! With a roomy interior, good controls and visibility, and strong drivability, the car is almost flawless. 

2. Mazda MX5 Miata - Best Sports Car Under $40,000. 

Consumer reports remark that the Mazda has "precise handling," something that you should expect from a sports car, although not all deliver. This vehicle has an intimate feel. The Mazda MX5 Miata packs an enormous amount of value for money into an attractive, appealing chassis, and to top it all off, gets great gas mileage too. In addition, for 25 years the continuing evolution of this model has been renowned for its reliability.  

3. Best Midsized SUV - The Kia Sorento

One of the best-kept secrets is out! The Kia Sorento is an amazing vehicle "hiding in plain sight." The reliability scores come in well above average, making it an excellent buy. This vehicle comes loaded with features and has an excellent safety record too. If you are looking for a vehicle that combines these features with an attractive exterior and interior, and a respectable price tag - look no further. 

4. Best Minivan - Toyota Sienna

Yes, it's a van - but what a van! With its attractive styling, this van is an exception to the rule. It features everything a family could want in transport - space, versatility, features, good fuel economy, seating for 8, strong drivetrain, and available all-wheel drive. If you have to move a group of people around on a regular basis, there's no better way to do it.

5. Best Pickup Truck - Ford F150

Setting aside the traditional steel body in exchange for an aluminium one, the Ford F150 loses none of its toughness, and the weight saved allows Ford to create a more fuel-efficient vehicle with better acceleration than its rivals. To add to its list of attributes, the vehicle has excellent reliability, which is something that the crew at Hansma always appreciate!
