Edmunds Unveils Top Rated Awards

By Staff Writer January 19, 2023

The envelope please. The winners of the Edmunds Top Rated Awards 2023 are determined by proprietary data and insights from Edmunds’ extensive new vehicle testing and rating process. They are:


  • Edmunds Top Rated Car — Honda Civic
  • Edmunds Top Rated Electric Car — Chevrolet Bolt EV
  • Edmunds Top Rated SUV — Kia Sportage Hybrid
  • Edmunds Top Rated Electric SUV — Hyundai Ioniq 5
  • Edmunds Top Rated Truck — Ford F-150
  • Edmunds Top Rated Electric Truck — Ford F-150 Lightning


This year’s collection of awards takes a fresh approach, including categories organized by powertrain (electric and internal combustion engine) rather than price (mainstream and luxury) to better reflect the shifting market and consumers’ growing consideration of green vehicles.

 “By including EVs and gas-powered models across a range of body styles and prices, the Edmunds Top Rated 2023 list highlights the best vehicles on sale this year for almost every consumer,” said Edmunds’ editor-in-chief Alistair Weaver.

Edmunds analysts report that battery electric vehicles made up 5.17% of new vehicle purchases in 2022 — up from 2.5% in 2021.

Edmunds Top Rated 2023 marks first-time wins for all of the EV category award recipients: the Chevrolet Bolt EV, Hyundai Ioniq 5 and Ford F-150 Lightning. In the internal combustion categories, the Honda Civic is back among this year’s winners after notching the Edmunds Top Rated Sedan award in 2022, and the Ford F-150 returns to the Edmunds Top Rated stage with its third consecutive Top Rated Truck award. Also new for 2023 is the Edmunds Top Rated Best of the Best award, which will be announced on Jan. 25.
