Brands known for reliability
When people are looking to buy a car, one of the first things they look for is reliability. Ideally, you want a car that will last a long time and not let you down. The criteria that go into reliability are the safety ratings, vehicle resale value, recall history, make and model reputation and the average repair costs. These are the most reliable car brands:
Brands known for luxury
Luxury car brands have high-end features that go beyond what's considered a necessity. These would be elements like sumptuous interiors, superior performance capabilities and the latest safety and technology features.
Brands known for value
Vehicles that give you value for your money are not just reliable, but they perform well and don't cost much to run and maintain. What car owners consider when talking about value is a reasonable price for a good range of safety and convenience features.
Brands known for comfort
Comfort is an important consideration, especially if you spend a lot of time in your vehicle daily, or go on long trips. What contributes to comfort is ride quality. For a smooth drive, a car should absorb bumps in the road, and there shouldn’t be excess noise from the engine, wind or the road. The comfort of the seats themselves is important, as well as the support they provide and the adjustability options.
Brands known for driving quality
Qualities that each of these brands offers is a smooth driving experience and good handling. Some characteristics that make for good drivability are agility, which is a matter of weight balance that allows for quick direction changes, steering that's responsive and controllability, so there's no unintentional understeering or oversteering. All of these combined make for a fun drive.
