March 2016

THE END of this year’s first quarter has shuffled our bottom 10 significantly but left our toporder largely unchanged. Nissan’s ageing GT-R has slumped to the bottom rungs after a brief moment in the sunshine in January, entering the worst 10 with Chrysler’s 300, Toyota’s 86, and Citroen’s DS3. Up top, Porsche has kept three of its models in the fray, but its 911 has replaced the Boxster in the rankings. Meanwhile the Panamera has moved up the ladder slowly to third spot, despite it nearing its model-cycle’s end.
