The Top Daily Drivers of 2018
A high-quality daily driver tends to be an extension of its owner. He’ll spend hours upon hours commuting and road tripping on stretches of highway and over winding back roads. To that end, even when brand new, the car should be like a new home — welcoming and ready to be personalized. And like a new home, it should match the driver’s style in regards to performance, luxury and design and, hopefully, hold up against the test of time. Out of all the cars to come out of 2018, these are the best candidates for a daily driver.
