In our line of work, we often get asked to name one best car to buy at a certain budget or segment. It is a question that many motoring publishers have sought to answer with comparison tests and Car of the Year awards.
But having reviewed countless number of cars over the years, covering various segments, we have come to the realization that it is pointless to dictate any one car to be the absolute best of a given segment.
Every car out there has its unique collection of traits that make them each better suited to the needs of different individuals. To name one car that best fits the requirements of every buyer shopping in that segment? The approach doesn’t quite make sense now, does it?
Also, just because a car was launched last year, or two years ago, does not mean it’s immediately no good next to the brand shiny new one unveiled yesterday.
