These fine gentlemen have the wit and audacity to cause manufacturers to change their stance on how the industry produces automobiles all over the world.
All thanks to these reporters, the mainstream automobile consumer base has been able to make sound decisions towards major car purchases. After all, buying a vehicle is about comfort, durability, and long-term performance – all of these aspects cannot be compromised or overlooked for that matter.
Selecting the Top Automobile Journalists
Our selection process is based on the individuals’ track record in the Automobile Journalism sector. We also gloated through the reporters’ social media following, real-time Klout score, and other variants to ensure that this list highlights reporters who know the ins and outs of the automobile industry.
