Consumer Reports has issued their Top Picks for 2006 evaluation of over 200 cars in 10 different categories. Ignoring minivans for the moment--because deep down, aren't we trying to avoid minivans here? Yes, yes we are--Daddy Type cars have landed in the top of three daddy-type categories:
Small SUV: Subaru Forester
Mid-size SUV: Toyota Highland Hybrid
Pickup: Honda Ridgeline
I would mention "Green car: Toyota Prius," but if you drive a Prius, you already feel so damn good about yourself, any more compliments will make you insufferable. I will praise your car-buying acumen if, say, you separate my trash for me, though.
