Best cars for commuters 2012

Forbes.com recently wrote an article which named the best cars for commuters. To determine there list they started with new vehicles listed as Consumer Reports “Recommended Picks” for this year. Recommended Picks are models that have average or better predicted reliability and that meet Consumer Reports’ safety standards; they also had to have performed well in accelerating, braking, handling, comfort and other user-oriented tests. Then they selected from that group those vehicles that earned the “Most Reliable” distinction for this year—and crosschecked them with CR’s “Most Fuel-Efficient” winners as well. Nine vehicles, including hybrids, sedans and even a couple SUVs, made the final cut.

Here are the nine cars (in no particular order):

1. Ford Fusion Hybrid
MSRP: $28,700

2. Toyota Highlander Hybrid
MSRP: $38,540

3. Lexus CT 200h
MSRP:
 $29,120

4. Scion xD 
MSRP:
 $16,075

5. Chevrolet Volt
MSRP:
 $39,145

6. Honda Fit 
MSRP: $15,175

7. Toyota Prius V
MSRP:
 $26,400

8. Subaru Forester 
MSRP: $20,595

9. Toyota RAV4
