Edmunds.com Announces Consumers' Most Wanted Vehicle Awards for 2005

Another interesting list...

Edmunds.com Announces Consumers' Most Wanted Vehicle Awards for 2005

Ford Mustang Named Consumers' Choice for Most Significant Vehicle of the Year; Domestic Cars Win, Place and Show

SANTA MONICA, Calif., May 10 -- Edmunds.com, the Internet's premiere resource for consumer automotive information, today announced the winners of the fourth annual Consumers' Most Wanted vehicle awards.

"Edmunds.com visitors regularly provide us and each other with feedback, so every year we ask them to vote for their Most Wanted Vehicles of the year," said Karl Brauer, Editor in Chief of Edmunds.com. "These are the vehicles that have captured the hearts and minds of the consumers."

The Ford Mustang won a landslide victory as the Consumers' Most Significant Vehicle of the Year for 2005. In a solid second place was the Chrysler 300 sedan, which was selected last fall as the Edmunds.com Editors' Most Significant Vehicle of the Year for 2005. In third place was the Chevrolet Corvette.

"The domestic automakers should be delighted to learn that their new cars were voted 'Most Significant Vehicle of the Year' by about 70 percent of those who participated in the survey," observed Brauer. "If they keep delivering products that attract consumer attention in this way, domestic market share is sure to climb."

Overall, however, domestic cars were chosen for only four of the vehicle segment awards. European vehicles won nine segments while Japanese vehicles earned top honors in 13 segments.

Honda, Porsche and Audi vehicles, in that order, were the most popular with those who participated in the survey this year. This is the second consecutive year in which Honda won the largest number of Edmunds.com Consumers' Most Wanted awards.
