Consumer Reports' top car picks - Americans shut out

Detroit automakers don't make it into the influential magazine's list.

Luxury car: Audi A6

consumer reports 2012 audi a6
  • Base price: $56,295
  • Test score (out of 100): 93
  • CR overall fuel economy: 22 mpg

"Agile, quick, and joy to drive," the A6 has a powerful supercharged V6 engine. It also provides decent fuel economy even with its available all-wheel-drive. As you might expect from a German luxury car, some of its controls are complicated. "Be ready to cozy up wit the the owner's manual," the magazine suggests.
