To select a car for our Lifestyle Awards, a car first must be selected as a Best Bet, though there are exceptions. To become a Best Bet, a car must have ratings of Acceptable or higher in Insurance Institute for Highway Safety crash tests; a reliability rating of average or higher; strong ride and handling; and average or better gas mileage in its segment.
Note: Some of our Lifestyle categories do not rely on Best Bets. There are many reasons for this, not the least of which is that there are often convertibles and/or low-volume models, which don't get crash-tested and/or don't always sell enough copies for valid reliability data.
