2009 Automobile All-Stars

The end of the year is nearing and everyone is starting to put out their Best of 2008 lists. I dont have one this year as I have simply been super busy but I have found a decent one to comment on.

Automobile Magazine has put out a list that they are calling the 2009 Automobile All-Stars. The cars on the list range from the new Audi R8 and Corvette ZR1 to the Honda Fit and Ford Flex. The categories have a nice wide range and cover a lot of ground as well.

The article itself gives a nice amount of detail about each vehicle why it was chosen and so on. I do have to say that the layout of the pages was a bit cumbersome. There are 10 vehicles and of course 10 pages. It makes the reading of the list to be a pain in the arse  but that may just be me.

I have listed the cars and their categories but encourage you to go and read the full article.
