Regrettably, the average American consumer’s choices rarely parallel our own when it comes to cars. We like to pick AMGs, Audis, FR-Ss and Vipers (with the occasional diesel sedan thrown in); they choose beige family sedans, cheap compacts and big pickup trucks they may or may not really need.
But even amongst the appliance-like cars chosen in the largest numbers by the citizens of our fair land, there are still some enjoyable choices to be found. So we’ve gone through 2012’s ten best-selling models and chosen the best way to have each one. Just because you’re stuck driving the same car as everyone else doesn’t mean you can’t make it somewhat enjoyable.
*Note: In certain cases, we’ve had to make our choices based on new or heavily revised 2013 model year cars, which would not have made up all the sales the year before. Don’t let it bother you too much.
