The annual MotorWeek Drivers' Choice Awards are unique for their consumer focus and represent the best automotive picks for a range of lifestyles. The writers, producers and staff of MotorWeek evaluated 150 vehicles, looking at performance, technology, practicality and dollar value. The winners represent what MotorWeek considers to be the best in each class.
