TrueCar.com recently announced that November auto sales came in at a seasonally adjusted annualized rate of 15.54 million units, up 15 percent from November last year.

"November was one of the strongest months in over four years and we project that December could end up being a bigger month," said Jesse Toprak, senior analyst for TrueCar.com. "Combination of great products and attractive finance/lease promotions in addition to a boost from replacement demand created by Sandy will ensure a solid finish to the best year in car sales since 2007."

TrueCar anticipates that nearly 30,000 of those November sales were due to Hurricane Sandy's impact on the automotive industry, however, it was the attractive financing options that drove customers to auto dealers.

"With either of the EcoBoost engines, it feels like a premium sedan, at an affordable price."

Marty Padgett, editorial director of High Gear Media, added that the 2013 Fusion has good looks and handling, while not cheating on room or safety in order to get them.

The Motor Authority site named the 2013 Porsche Boxster as the Best Performance/Luxury Car to Buy 2013 primarily because of the car's styling, features, acceleration and handling.

Finally, the Green Car Reports location named the 2013 Tesla Model S as its Best Green Car to Buy 2013 because of new technologies, practicality and the car's impact on the environment.
