Every other year the car manufacturers come up with car models for people to buy. Depending on the features that come with such models, the brands are either popular with customers or not. However there are factors that contribute to the buying of cars by millions of people. If in the past a car has had a good history with its cars, such that their cars have been reliable, fuel economical, luxurious among other features, the brand is likely to follow precedent. That is the case in 2012.
The most popular brands in the market today are basically based on the practicability rather than the specific tastes that a particular person might be having. While a person might love a Lamborghini very much, it will definitely not appear on the most popular cars as it is not in the reach of the millions around the world. A car becomes popular because of its fuel efficiency, comfort, capability, reliability, space, handling among other features. Here are some of the most popular models for the year 2012.
Honda Civic Hybrid
This is a car which has scored good ratings among numerous review sites and has received much acclaim from many buyers. The car scores highly when put to the mileage and reliability test, the engine is 1339cc and even though not very powerful, it gives a modest 115 mph. It is accorded good interior space and a family can comfortably ride in it only if there is no much luggage to carry. A good car for the basics. The mileage that the Civic Hybrid commands is 44mpg on average.
Toyota Camry Hybrid
Toyota has had a good name for many years and this remains to be so even though there has been several recalls which would presumably cause a dent in its image when it comes to its car sales, but on the contrary, this is not the case. Toyota Camry Hybrid is commanding quite a following from all quotas. The fuel consumption is good and by all means performance exemplary on the road given that it is an economical car.
Ford Fusion Hybrid
The thing that stands out when one sees a Ford Fusion Hybrid is the fact that it can accommodate literally anything a normal car should. The space is good and it this quota it beats the likes of Camry and the rest. The car is a good family car to be associated with and it has an average 39mpg.
Hyundai Sonata Hybrid
The 2.4l 4 cyl. hybrid engine performs well on the road and comes with several advantages over its rivals. The cabin for a start is spacious and one can carry quite a lot of stuff and have a good drive. It comes with a smooth ride which is also very comfortable. The car also offers the driver and the passengers’ high safety guarantees. Maybe the downside of this car would be the clumsy braking system and a fuel system which is not very refined.
