New Car Models


Several Subarus made the list of top recommended cars for older drivers.

Consumer Reports on Thursday recommended 25 new car models for older drivers and others with limited mobility who “need a car that’s easy to get into and out of, with controls that are easy to reach and intuitive to use.”

All 25 models earned a score of excellent or very good in categories including road-test performance, predicted reliability, owner satisfaction and safety. Special consideration was given to features that Consumer Reports thinks are essential for older drivers.

The list includes:

  • Subaru Forester, Outback, Legacy and Crosstrek
  • Kia Soul, Sportage, Sorento and Forte
  • Toyota Highlander, Prius V, RAV4, Camry, Sienna and Corolla
  • Honda Odyssey, Accord, CRV and Pilot
  • Ford C-Max Hybrid, Escape and Flex
  • Hyundai Sonata, Santa Fe and Tucson
  • Nissan Rogue
