NADAguides, a vehicle pricing organization, recently unveiled the seven cars included on its 2011 "Must Consider" list, reports MotorTrend.
While the auto experts don't "wholeheartedly agree with every choice" listed, there are several that they believe are worth considering when buying a new car.
After making it's U.S. debut, the 2011 Audi Q5 was welcomed with open arms, thanks to its high quality level and excellent safety features. The 2012 Fiat 500, recently praised by MSN Autos, also made the list.
The 2011 Hyundai Elantra and 2011 Kia Soul's low base price helped them earn spots on the "Must Consider" list, according to the new source. Troy Sydney, the director of product development at NADAguides praised the latter as "the whole package."
Sydney also said the Volkswagen Golf made the list because it "knows how to impress with a well-rounded combination of style, performance, safety, fuel efficiency and features."
The list of seven was completed with the inclusion of Toyota's 4Runner Trail 2011 model and Ford's 2011 Taurus Limited, both congratulated on their respective technological features and high safety ratings.
MotorTrend states the list is what NADAguides' analysts believe are "the hottest cars on the market."
