Get a quick look at the cream of the high-zoot crop.
Everyone's got a list of features that their next car absolutely must have. For some folks, this is easier than for others. Got six kids? You're looking at three-row crossovers or minivans. But what if you crave technology in your ride? Sure, some cars are known for catering to tech-craving folks, but it's not always easy to broadly survey the entire field of vehicles on sale and see everything in your category.
Don't be the guy in the image above. If you're just plain tall, or have really long legs, we feel your pain – and you should be driving a car that fits you right. A few Autoblog editors fall into the long camp, and despite vehicles designed for Americans generally being generous with interior room, it's not always easy to find a car that'll work without contortion.

But if you're self-employed or buying a vehicle for personal use, the range of choices can be nearly overwhelming. There are vans, midsize pickups, SUVs, and full-siz
If you live in an area where snow and ice are common in the winter, travel on unimproved roads for fun or work, or simply want an extra degree of security in inclement weather, you should really consider an all-wheel or four-wheel drive vehicle. For many people, an all-wheel drive crossover, truck, or SUV offers the most traction in the greatest number of situations. Where conditions are less severe, or your recreational needs are not as serious, a front- or rear-drive vehicle with good season-s
If you're looking at maximizing fuel economy or getting a car with green cred, you're probably already thinking about a battery-electric vehicle (also referred to as an EV), a gasoline-electric hybrid, or a plug-in hybrid. And we do, too. That's why there's a special category in our Car Finder tool just for environmentally-friendly cars, trucks, and crossovers. You'll can further sort by specific green powertrain, so if you're only looking for plug-in hybrids you can filter out the rest. Filter
