What prompts a new car purchase is often a change in your personal life. A bigger family may have you thinking more about extra seating and storage than you used to. A new job in a more far-flung location may have you craving cabin comfort. Downsizing may turn your mind to a small, sporty car.

That’s why we created these curated lists of the best vehicles for key life stages. For this guide, we combed through the hundreds of data points we collect on every vehicle we test, and—for the first time—ranked them according to the specific criteria we judged to be important for each milestone. So, for instance, there's “easy car-seat installation” for new families or “good visibility” for seniors. You’ll see a specially created score from 0 to 100 in each category for just this purpose.

Consumer Reports selects the best cars for savvy seniors, focused on the specific needs of older drivers. Older drivers may no longer commute to work every day, but they might need a car for longer road trips or one that can easily fit a car seat when it’s time to pick up the grandkids.

Regardless of the life stage, all the cars listed here are CR recommended models and have high Overall Scores in their categories. That’s because we believe any vehicle you drive should be reliable, have key safety features, and get good fuel economy and performance for its class.
