7. Volkswagen Golf
There are cars that are popular for a few months or years after the release, and then there are iconic models that span over generations. The Volkswagen Golf, one of the best selling compact cars in the history, is still going strong. Known for its reliability, fuel economy, upscale cabin design, mild ride, and ultimate comfort features, the Volkswagen Golf is a great choice of a small vehicle.

5. Acura MDX

With a three-row seating and advanced safety characteristics the Acura MDX is a top choice of a family ride, while sharp handling and excellent performance make it simply a pleasure to drive.
4. Lexus RX350
Sometimes all you need from a vehicle is mind-blowing performance, but most buyers are ready to sacrifice part of the performance features for comfort, durability, and good looks. The Lexus RX350, one of the best-known luxury SUVs, may not have the most memorable performance, but it makes up for it with a variety of other outstanding features.
3. Honda Accord
