I’d started out with a Top 10 list but before I was done, I’d put 12 names down and wasn’t in the mood to negotiate with myself and narrow the list down to 10. In fact, I’ve left out a few vehicles, namely the Hyundai Kona and Nissan Kicks because a Top 14 list would be weird.
As you can see, the list contains hugely varying models, from a $40k old-man’s sedan to some classic Japanese beauties to a $400+k hypercar. All merit their spot on this page for multiple reasons but the question I keep asking myself is: “What if I had to pick just one of these?”
So far, I’ve narrowed it down to the first three… What do you guys think?
