Two Edmunds.com awards for Top Rated
The coveted Top Rated Vehicles Awards were given to the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray and Chevrolet Traverse during the
2014 New York International Auto Show.
Of course the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray is known for its V8 performance engine and power on the road. The Top Rated Award for the coupe also took into account its spacious cargo area, upgraded electronic features and impressive handling.
The 2014 Chevrolet Traverse was recognized as a Top Rated SUV for meeting nearly all of the ‘wants’ a large family is looking for in a large crossover SUV. Its spacious interior is assumed – plenty of cargo room and seating for 8. The interior isn’t just big, its also attractive and comfortable with plenty of technological features.
Both the Traverse and Corvette Stingray also won in their Most Popular categories.

How does Edmunds.com choose the winners?
Apparently, Edmunds.com has a lot of time on their hands.
Edmunds.com recently tested 200 cars to find the Top Rated Vehicles being sold today. Using their standardized road-test loop and test track, the cars are subjected to controlled conditions and each vehicle is assessed against its rivals. Once the rankings are decided, a grade is assigned in relation to other vehicles in its class and price range. The cars that perform the best are given an “A” rating and awarded the Top Rated Vehicle Award.
Another honor – the Most Popular Award – is related to the number of unique visitors that visit the model’s pages and reviews at Edmunds.com. The three models in each segment with the most number of distinct visitors win the Most Popular Award.
