Best Car of the Year: Here Are the Top 2019 Vehicles in Our Rankings

If one of your New Year’s resolutions is to buy a great new car, you’ve come to the right place. We’ve gone through our car and SUV rankings and found the best of the best for 2019.

In this slideshow, we’ve included the vehicles with the highest U.S. News overall scores across four broad segments: Cars, Luxury Cars, SUVs, and Luxury SUVs. Vehicles that have never been tested for reliability were disqualified. Pickup trucks and sports cars are also not included.

Our new car rankings are based on the consensus opinion of the automotive press, as well as third-party safety and reliability data. Five components make up a vehicle’s overall score: Performance, Interior, Critic’s Rating, Safety, and Reliability. We combine these scores in a formula that is based on what new car shoppers say matters most to them in a new vehicle. The result is an overall score for each new car on a 1 to 10 scale. For more information on how we rank cars, visit our methodology page.

The scores on our site are regularly updated based on new data, so bear in mind that the U.S. News scores cited here may vary slightly from the scores on our rankings pages.
