FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
InsideLine.com Announces the 2010 Editors' Most Wanted Vehicles
SANTA MONICA, Calif. — (December 2, 2009) — InsideLine.com, the most visited automotive infotainment Web site, has chosen the winners of the 2010 Editors' Most Wanted Awards. Every year the editors pick their six most coveted vehicles from among the hundreds tested. All cars, trucks and SUVs tested by November 1 were eligible — and although it's not a requirement, the editors seek to choose one vehicle in each of the following categories: speed, luxury, hauling, commuting and family.
"Of all the cars and trucks we've tested in the last 12 months, these are the ones we most want in our garage," said Scott Oldham, InsideLine.com Editor in Chief.
The winners of the 2010 Inside Line Editors' Most Wanted Awards are:
2010 Porsche Panamera — The Porsche Panamera is nothing less than the finest high-performance four-door sedan money can buy, the ultimate combination of space, speed and luxury. — Scott Oldham, Editor in Chief
2010 Audi R8 5.2 FSI Quattro — Slow, tight mountain roads? No problem. The car is supernaturally nimble for its size. Open, sweeping valley roads? It is capable of such smooth, stable progress that you will be going much, much faster than a sane person would. — Daniel Pund, Senior Editor, Detroit
2010 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor — This is quite possibly the most unique and entertaining vehicle sold in North America right now. — Josh Jacquot, Senior Road Test Editor
2010 Mazda 3 — With numerous innovative options, class-leading dynamics, engaging driving character and a new look, the 2010 Mazda 3 continues to set the compact class standard. This car is an example of how to do it right. — Mike Schmidt, Vehicle Testing Manager
2010 Ford Flex — Just as its appearance promises, it shatters your expectations about the whole people-moving paradigm and delivers a luxurious, adult-rated experience. It's both functional and artful, like one of those pieces of kitchenware on display at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. — Daniel Pund, Senior Editor, Detroit
Instant Classic: 2010 Ford Shelby GT500 — For a car of its mass, the GT500's control feel is astonishing and cements the conclusion that the GT500 is a $50,000 Mustang that is worth the price of admission. This is a machine to be lusted after. Today and tomorrow. — Jason Kavanagh, Engineering Editor
