Consumer Reports tested new models to select the best cars of 2016

engine

Consumer Reports tested more than 70 new car models and found the Audi Q7, Lincoln MKX, and Honda Civic to be among the best.

Every year, dozens of new and completely redesigned vehicles are introduced to the automotive marketplace in the United States. Consumer Reports, a nonprofit organization that provides unbiased product testing and ratings, takes these new models and puts them to the test. Every new car is rigorously tested and only the best-of-the-best receive a Consumer Reports top rating.

In 2016, Consumer Reports chose six new models as the best cars of the year. On the list were the Audi Q7, BMW 7 Series, Honda Civic, Kia Optima, Lincoln MKX, and Toyota Prius. Each of these models showed fresh style, excellent functionality, and creative touches.

Audi Q7

The three-row Audi SUV made the list, having proven to Consumer Reports that you really can have it all. They praised the SUV for its athletic handling, powerful engine, and commendable 20 mpg. With an inviting interior, “cushy ride”, and standard safety features, the Audi Q7 is great choice for drivers in the luxury SUV market.

Lincoln MKX

The Lincoln MKX is a midsized SUV based off of the non-luxury Ford Edge. Consumer Reports commends the American car company for creating an SUV that “instills confidence and puts a smile on your face”. In the Lincoln MKX, you can expect a quiet, tranquil ride surrounded by a luxury interior and “supremely” comfortable seats.

Honda Civic

The Honda compact sedan made its way back to the top of the list, overcoming shortcomings from the previous Civic generations. The sedan offers drivers a refined ride and excellent handling. The interior offers passengers a roomy ride and high-quality materials, which Consumer Reports called a “huge improvement” for the model. With a “sufficiently powerful” engine, the Civic gives you 32 mpg and the option for a stronger turbo.

While Consumer Reports sang praise for these six models, not everyone was feeling the love. Among the vehicles named the worst of 2016 were the Smart ForTwo pint-sized city car, and the similarly fuel-efficient Chevrolet Spark designed for city driving.

Six advantages of buying a new car from Military AutoSource

2017 edge

There are many things to consider when you’re shopping for your next vehicle. But no question is debated as frequently as the decision whether to buy new or used.

It’s commonly thought that buying a used car is the cheapest way into your next vehicle, but that’s not always the case. When you factor in vehicle maintenance and repairs, buying used can actually cost you more over the years.

Buying your new vehicle from Military AutoSource comes with even more advantages, including better prices, more choices, and exclusive safeguards.

Below are six advantages of buying a new car from Military AutoSource

1. Get exactly what you want

You can custom order your vehicle to be exactly the way you want, building your dream car with all your desired options

RELATED: Friends and Family Delivery from Military AutoSource 

2. Convenient delivery 

You can take delivery of your vehicle overseas, or arrange to pick it up when you return stateside. This allows you to avoid the hassle of rental cars and means your ride is ready to go when you are.

3. Taxes 

If you deliver overseas, you do not have to pay tax! For stateside delivery, you have the convenience of budgeting up front any costs for state and local taxes, registration, and license fees at the time you pick up/and or register your vehicle stateside.

4. Factory warranty 

Your new vehicle comes with a factory warranty from the manufacturer and is valid both stateside and overseas. You may also purchase an extended service plan that includes comprehensive component coverage along with towing, rental and trip interruption. Plan coverage up to 75,000 miles. This coverage is valid both stateside and overseas.

RELATED: Green Tag Sales offers overseas military members payments as-low-as $199 a month 

5. Fuel efficiency 

Buying a new car means higher Miles Per Gallon (MPG) ratings and lower annual fuel costs. Older cars have lower efficiency that gets less effective over time.

6. Safety and technology features 

Your new car will have the newest safety features and innovations, and be equipped with the newest technology and innovations now standard or available.

A Closer Look: The Lincoln Navigator Concept Vehicle

In March, Lincoln revealed its new Navigator concept at the New York International Auto Show, and trust us, it’s worth a look.
Lincoln Navigator Concept

The concept is meant to offer a glimpse at what is to come from the Lincoln Navigator. While certain awe-inducing features, like the gullwing doors and concertina steps, were purely for the concept, many features will be seen when the 2017 Navigator hits showrooms.

“The all-new Navigator Concept reinforces our commitment to give every Lincoln client what we call quiet luxury – vehicles and experiences that are elegant, effortlessly powerful and serene,” said Kumar Galhotra, president of Lincoln. “This kind of quiet luxury sets Lincoln apart. Now, we’re showing fans of large SUVs how we can exceed their expectations, without being the loudest statement on the road.”

The new Lincoln Navigator will have a modern design inspired by luxury sailboats and yachts. It is meant to appeal to customers interested in better performance, more space, and added refinement.

Performance

The Navigator concept features a 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6 engine that delivers more than 400 horsepower. Additional technologies make the vehicle handle better on different road surfaces and in varying weather conditions. The SUV will have several drive modes that allow drivers to choose what fits them best, the including steering, suspension and noise.

Interior

The best way to describe the Navigators interior – luxurious. With the most spacious interior ever, the SUV is bursting with new amenities. The vehicle concept shows six Perfect Position Seats that allows the passenger to adjust their seat over 30 ways for the best support.

Technology

One thing the Lincoln Navigator Concept wasn’t lacking is cool technological advancements. A Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection uses radar and camera technology to detect possible collision risks with vehicle or pedestrians. The system is smart enough to break on its own if the driver isn’t paying attention.

A park assist camera makes the parking the SUV a breeze, giving the driver a 360-degree view. Passengers can enjoy Wi-FI connectivity on head rest mounted monitors. The driver can enjoy a large display screen that can be easily customized.

Are you excited for the reveal of the all-new Lincoln Navigator, set to hit showrooms next year?
