After taking some time to crunch the numbers, our 2018 results are in – and man, were they impressive! All of us at Magazine are humbled by our achievements, which make all of our efforts worth it. Each and every week we aim to drive, assess, and review just about any and every make and model of car, and we are grateful that you the readers have made us a trusted source of information on the automotive landscape in North America.

Whether you are visiting us for the first time, or you are one of our many loyal readers and followers, we want to extend our gratitude for your support in the past year, which was our best year yet! We were so impressed by our numbers that we wanted to share them with you. We saw a total of 16,232,197 reads, which is a 37% increase compared to 2017!

In total, we published 246 road tests in 2018, which is a 13% increase from 2017. On top of that, we traveled the world to bring you 48 first drives!

In terms of our most read articles, we were pleasantly surprised at the diversity of our top ten list. With the automotive industry lamenting (or rejoicing) over the slow death of the sedan, a few still managed to squeak into our accolades, in addition to more than just crossover sport utilities:
