Tesla Model 3 made Consumer Reports Top 10 best cars of the year 2020. According to consumer reports, this top 10 best cars standouts from hundreds of current models rated by consumer reports and backed by survey data from hundreds of thousands of consumer reports members.
When selecting Top Picks, we only consider CR-recommended models that come standard with forward collision warning (FCW) and automatic emergency braking (AEB) with pedestrian detection. This is the first year we’ve required standard pedestrian detection to be eligible. This feature works with AEB to sense when people are in a car’s pathway and automatically brake, if needed. We believe all of these features have the potential to save lives and shouldn’t cost extra as part of an options package.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that there were 6,283 pedestrian deaths from traffic crashes in 2018, the most since 1990.
“Studies and our own testing have shown pedestrian detection systems can help curb this tragic trend,” says Jake Fisher, senior director of auto testing at Consumer Reports. “We added this requirement to help make this feature commonplace.”Source
