The quality gap between mainstream and luxury vehicles has shrunk so much that one of the most closely followed auto industry reviewers no longer breaks them into separate categories.

Consumer Reports on Thursday revealed its 2020 Top Picks, its annual list of the best vehicles you can buy. And for the first time, the product-testing website named 10 winners across four price ranges, rather than splitting them into luxury and non-luxury models or dedicating awards to specific body styles.

That’s because mainstream vehicle interiors have become more sumptuous, ride handling has improved, advanced safety systems have become common and reliability has spiked.

“We’re seeing this big merge of luxury-branded vehicles with just normal vehicles. They’re overlapping incredibly,” said Jake Fisher, director of auto testing for Consumer Reports. “You can get a lot of luxury, quiet, comfort, all that, with the normal non-luxury-branded vehicles, and the luxury-branded vehicles are marching down-market, too with some of their offerings.”

Luxury vehicles, he said, are more of a status symbol than ever, as evidenced by mainstream brands like Subaru, Mazda and Kia making the Top 10 on the Consumer Reports Car Brand Report Card for 2020. They beat luxury brands like Land Rover, Acura and Cadillac.

“You don’t have to pay a lot of money” to get a great vehicle, Fisher said.

Subaru, which scored two Top Picks, was the only other automaker with more than one win. (See the full list below.)

The Tesla Model 3 also earned Consumer Reports’ Top Pick designation for the first time.

Both organizations said pedestrian detection systems are critical to help combat the nation’s pedestrian safety crisis.
