Amidst the predictable hail of automotive year-end best lists, Royal Ford, the splendiferously named automotive correspondent for the Boston Globe, has picked his ’10 Vehicles That Will Get Your Motor Running.’ The Beantown pundit (and One Lap of America veteran) has curried his favorite rides of the year from every genre, from workaday sedans to sports cars and sport-utes.

While a particularly well-rounded list, Royal’s choices won’t exactly rock the industry. Its only real ‘dark horse’ pick is Toyota’s genre-bending Tacoma X-Runner, or perhaps the Audi A3.

Royal’s list shakes out as follows:

  • Nissan Xterra
  • Ford Fusion
  • Pontiac Solstice
  • Hyundai Sonata
  • Honda Civic
  • Porsche Cayman S
  • Toyota Tacoma X-Runner
  • Audi A3 S-line
  • Honda Ridgeline
  • BMW M5
