The Best: The 2018 Cadillac CTS-V is a fun ride that’s comfortable enough for even the most experienced cabbie.
The 2019 Cadillac ATS is a more capable SUV, and the 2018 Lincoln Navigator is an easygoing pickup.
But in a city like Los Angeles, you’ll want to be sure to pick up one of the newest, most capable cars, because the CTS V and ATS are the best cars you can buy in the city right now.
The Worst: The 2019 Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class and the 2019 Ford Focus RS are the cars you’ll be most worried about in your commute.
Both cars come with a $40,000 price tag, and they’re also quite large and heavy.
But those are great choices if you live in Los Angeles.
The Mercedes-AMG GL-Class ($30,000) is a compact sedan that offers an interesting array of options, including an electrically powered roof, a six-speed automatic transmission, and a rear-wheel drive setup.
The 2018 Nissan LEAF ($30.4) is the smallest car in the new CTS lineup.
But if you’re just looking to spend the least money possible, the 2019 Volkswagen Golf R ($28,400) is also a great option.
There’s also a 2018 Mercedes-BMW SLS AMG ($27,500), the 2018 Porsche Cayenne Turbo ($25,000), and the 2017 Ford Mustang GT ($25.5).
The 2019 Ford F-150 Raptor ($25) and the Ford Focus ST ($25).

The 2014 Chevrolet Malibu ($19,900).
