In October, we awarded three cars with “Editor’s Choice” status, and these three cars are completely different from each other. There is an electric car, a new medium truck, and a sport-oriented luxury station wagon. With the end of the year, we expect more 2022 model year update cars to be eligible for Editors’ Picks, so please pay attention as soon as possible. Please continue reading below to understand the reasons for the cut in October.
If you missed our previous editor’s pick post, here is a quick review of what happened here. We rate all new cars we drive on a scale of 1-10. Cars that are exemplary in their respective market segments received the “Editor’s Choice” status. These are the ones we would recommend to our friends, family and anyone who is curious and asks questions. The list you will find below contains every car that we evaluated in October that won the Editor’s Choice Award.
2021 Volkswagen ID. 4
Quick access: An EV full of fun to drive, with a rich cruising range, a variety of practicalities and stylish shapes. It was disappointed by unnecessary and difficult-to-use technology, but it identified all other important aspects of electric vehicles.
What does it compete with: Tesla Model Y, Ford Mustang Mach-E, Hyundai Kona Electric, Kia Niro EV
advantage: Comfort, excellent handling, spaciousness, and ample range
shortcoming: The technology inside the car is frustrating, and the interior is plain/barren
Senior Editor Green John Beltz Snyder — “ID.4 is not perfect, but when you consider its other qualities, it’s easy to overlook its quirky technology and touch interface. It’s very fast and has surprisingly sharp handling. It’s It’s also very spacious, with enough space for passengers and cargo. I always put it on the Tiguan.”

From the editor:
Road Test Editor Zac Palmer — “The Frontier is already one of my favorite mid-size pickups. Its interior is very quiet and refined. I like Nissan without making it much larger than the old extroverted model. All the features I’d like There, when we talk about trucks of this size and class, its below-average towing capacity is hardly annoying.”

advantage: Smooth and sporty design, sturdy power system, excellent handling and riding experience
shortcoming: Small rear seat, G70 drives better
From the editor:
Road Test Editor Zac Palmer — “Kia has solved the problem that bothered me the most about Stinger before the update. The V6 has poor exhaust and noise, and the four-cylinder engine lacks excitement. The V6 sounds more emotional and more Powered by a 2.5 turbocharged four-cylinder engine, the Stinger series is exactly what I want.”
Senior Editor Green John Beltz Snyder — “Stinger is just a dynamite bag. It is smooth, fast, spacious, and uses updated technology to keep it in line with other Hyundai/Kia extraordinary lineups. Its shape is magnetic and attractive parking lot Curious admirers around. I happily recommend it to anyone considering buying.”
