Edmunds.com selects the best cars on the market

It's always hard to select the best cars on the market. With so many different elements to consider - from the sticker price to ongoing vehicle maintenance to safety features - most rankings of the top offerings have to have some kind of variables that make the task easier. That wasn't the case with the most recent project from Edmunds.com, which selected The 17 Best Cars You Can Buy

"This list answers a question that we get all the time: If you could pick any car in a given segment, and money wasn't an issue, what car would you choose?" said James Riswick, automotive editor of Edmunds.com. "Sure, many of the cars on this list cost a pretty penny, but guess what? It usually costs more to get the best." 

In total, there are 14 different brands present on the list, with Toyota leading the way with three vehicles. Honda is next with two options ranked. Many drivers may notice the 2013 Nissan Altima was named the Best Midsize Sedan, thanks to its smooth driving performance, impressive fuel economy and relatively affordable price. 

Other winners include the 2014 Mercedes-Benz S-Class, which was rated as the Best Luxury Sedan, and the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette, which earned the title of Best Sports Car.
