Toyota's Prius Tops Consumer Guide(R) Automotive's 2013 Best Buy Awards

More Rigorous Selection This Year Produces Clearer Choices for Consumers

LINCOLNWOOD, IL -- (Marketwire) -- 11/30/12 -- Consumer Guide Automotive, the leading publisher of authoritative, objective new and used car reviews for 45+ years, today announced the recipients of its 2013 Best Buy Awards. A Consumer Guide Best Buy represents the finest balance of attributes and value in its class. For 2013, just 26 Best Buys have been awarded, providing clearer, easier choices for consumers.

Toyota's entire line of 2013 Prius models win the first-ever Editors' Choice Best Buy Award, which recognizes them as the pinnacle in value, features, and driving experience among 2013 vehicle choices. This year's Best Buy list showcases vehicles from the hundreds of available cars, SUVs, minivans, and trucks including the Chevrolet Volt, Kia Sorento, Dodge Ram 1500, Acura's RDX, Volkswagen's Passat, and Ford Mustang.

The complete list of Consumer Guide Automotive's 2013 Best Buy Awards can be viewed at:

Or look for the magazine Consumer Guide® Automotive BEST BUYS 2013 at newsstands across the U.S. starting December 4th.

Since 1967, Consumer Guide Automotive's award-winning editorial team has used a rigorous and comprehensive evaluation process to identify the vehicles worthy of serious consideration by a consumer. The editors utilize objective criteria, such as price, features, performance, accommodations, fuel economy, reliability records, and resale value, to assess each vehicle. Previously, top vehicles were divided into two categories: The Consumer Guide Automotive Best Buy and Recommended winners. For 2013, the Editors decided to give the consumer a more focused evaluation of the vehicles available by eliminating the Recommended accolade and also raising the criteria for earning a Best Buy classification. The result is a shorter and more prestigious list. "Our goal," notes Consumer Guide publisher Tom Appel, "is to be sure that only the very best vehicles are recognized. This means clearer choices for consumers."

The key to Consumer Guide Automotive's annual Best Buy Awards is the careful evaluation of every aspect of each vehicle as it relates to consumers' real-world driving experience. It is this thoroughness that is bringing consumers to check Consumer Guide Automotive reviews before buying a new vehicle.

Consumer Guide's editorial team drives nearly 200,000 miles per year in evaluating what these vehicles do well -- and what they don't. Whether it is driving through the city, on highways, in rural areas, on long trips, or simply picking up the kids at school, these vehicles are tested in the same way that typical car buyers would use their vehicle.

Complete reviews of the winning vehicles, as well as other pertinent information for in-market car buyers, can be found at ConsumerGuide.com.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
