Forbes magazine has done it again. The publication that knows all things quality and business has released another useful list. This one, created by the thoughtful lads at Total Car Score, helps those looking for a new car navigate the confusing auto market by listing the most improved cars of the year.
To make their list, Total Car Score mined data from a number of car review websites and publications including J.D. Power and Associations, Consumer Reports, and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. Instead of giving consumers more data, the list makers’ goal was to give consumers a simple list. Talking about this goal, Karl Brauer, editor-in-chief of Total Car Score, said, “Nobody ever says I need more information about automobiles. There are a bunch of good sites out there. I brought them all together.”
The most improved model year 2012 vehicles are the Ford Focus, Hyundai Accent, Toyota Camry, Toyota Camry Hybrid, Toyota Yaris, Kia Sportage, Cadillac SRX, and Honda CR-V. So if you’re in the market for one of these cars, you may want to try and get a new car auto loan for a 2012 model, as opposed to going down the pre-owned road. Sure, a used car loan is easier to get, typically, but the APR rates will almost certainly be higher.
