2019 Editors' Choice Awards


Welcome to the inaugural Edmunds Editors' Choice Awards celebrating the top cars, trucks and SUVs of 2019. Our seven award winners stem from an exhaustive testing process. Every year, we scrutinize over 300 vehicles on road and track, driving over half a million miles. We're confident our testing regime is the most robust in the business and as a result, the winners are a true measure of excellence. I hope you enjoy the films. — Alistair Weaver, Editor-in-Chief
