This paper is an incremental report of an on-going program of the Automotive Engineering Department of the Automobile Club of Southern California in which desirable significant characteristics of today's automobiles are identified. Subjective and objective testing of current model year vehicles is conducted and the vehicles tested are ranked against a “target”. The results of the tests involving twenty-four vehicles are reported.
