NEW YORK (MONEY Magazine) - MONEY's car tests don't involve stopwatches.
Instead, trunks are loaded up, kids shuttled, vehicles parallel-parked -- in other words, what you do with your car in the real world.
Value is the other essential consideration: Building a great, expensive car is easy -- it's building a great car at a great price with great resale value that's a real triumph.
