What have we learned after a year of driving more than 100 new cars? As automotive reviewers for the Globe, we’ve crawled in and out of more models than most people see in a lifetime.

With so many impressive competitors, it’s especially tough to pick 10 favorites for 2013. Our Top Drives span a wide range of prices and vehicle segments, but all carry the same core traits: excellent performance, quality construction, fine details, and most of all, solid value. Consider all of these cars for 2013.
