The Jalopnik Buyers Guide doesn’t just tell you what to buy, it also tells you what to buy instead of the car you think you want. For example, don’t buy a Jeep Compass, buy a Mazda CX-5. Don’t buy a Volkswagen Passat, buy a Hyundai Sonata. Don’t buy a Maserati Ghibli, buy literally any other car in that class.
