These Are the 10 Most Reliable Cars You Can Buy

November 15, 2019 Cars By

Reliability is an important consideration when buying a car, either new or used. Consumer Reports released its new 10 most reliable cars list for 2020. True to form, nine of the top 10 cars are from Japanese automakers. And the list just so happens include some of our favorite new vehicles on sale todat.

Check out the top 10 list below.

1. 2020 Mazda MX-5 Miata

Mazda’s best car also happens to be its most reliable. Isn’t it great when things work out?

2. 2020 Toyota Prius Prime

The plug-in hybrid version of the Prius won’t let you down, while also averaging about 54 mpg.

3. 2020 Toyota Prius

It’s still slightly dorky-looking, but the standard Prius won’t disappoint you over the long haul.

4. 2020 Lexus GX

Lexus has been putting out this rugged off-roader for more than 10 years. So it’s no surprise they know how to make it well by now.

5. 2020 Hyundai Kona


The North American Utility Vehicle of the Year for 2019 also has a fun electric version.

6. 2020 Mazda CX-3


The Mazda CX-3 is a subcompact crossover that stands out in a crowded room.

7. 2020 Lexus NX

The Toyota RAV4‘s fancier cousin makes the list.

8. Toyota 4Runner

It’s hard to find a cooler off-roader than the Toyota 4Runner. Hard to find a more reliable one, either.

9. 2020 Mazda CX-9

The Mazda CX-9 is one of the best SUVs on the market, regardless of price.

10. 2020 Lexus GS

Lexus’s performance-oriented luxury sedan is also a reliable choice.
