Three American Cars in Top 10

Tesla Car
It should be announced that U.S. cars, including the battery-powered Tesla Model S, account for three of the top 10 picks by automobile testers at Consumer Reports for the first time since 1998.

Tesla Motors Inc.’s $89,650 Model S was the top overall pick for the second year in a row by the independent product-testing magazine. General Motors Co.’s Buick Regal was named the best sports sedan, a category the BMW AG 328i won last year, and its Chevrolet Impala was the top luxury sedan.

"For years, domestic automakers built lower-priced and lower-quality alternatives to imports, but those days are behind us,” said Jake Fisher, Consumer Reports’ director of automotive testing. “Today many domestic models can go toe-to-toe with the best imports."

Consumer Reports tests and evaluates cars for how well they drive, interior-finish quality, safety and reliability. The 2015 rankings, released Tuesday, influence car buyers and are published in the Yonkers, New York-based magazine’s annual automobile issue.
