Jeep Wrangler Picked as Lifestyle Vehicle of the Year
Carspondent.com has concluded its Active Lifestyle Vehicle of the Year assessment. Over a hundred attendees including seventy athletes who participate in sports including cycling, triathlon, kayaking, softball, running and more evaluated 28 cars in seven categories. Predictably, the Jeep Wrangler easily won the "Best Value Off-Road" category for 2013.
ALV is the only car-of-the-year program in the United States which combines the input of automotive journalists with elite and area athletes to determine which cars and trucks best meet the needs of buyers with active lifestyles.
“Authenticity is a very important aspect of this program,” said ALV co-founder, Nina Russin. “We vet the athletes to make sure their involvement in sports is significant enough to impact their car buying decisions. Team leaders are considered opinion leaders in the active community."
