AUTOMOBILE MAGAZINE PICKS THE TOP 10 CARS; FEBRUARY ISSUE FEATURES BEST AUTO OFFERINGS

 ANN ARBOR, Mich., Jan. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- The editors of AUTOMOBILE Magazine have selected the 10 best 1994 cars now on sale based on vehicles which will give their owners driving pleasure (and workday utility), not necessarily on what people think they have to buy.
 "Nineteen people, all of them knowledgeable and experienced drove these cars and cast their ballots," explained Editorial Director David E. Davis, Jr. "The process, detailed in the February 1994 issue, worked, and the list of winners is a good one. People go through life doing what they think they have to do; the purchase of one of these cars will give the owner the opportunity to do what they want and without any guilt!"
 And this year's top 10 list from the home office in Ann Arbor, the 1994 AUTOMOBILE Magazine All Stars:
 BMW 325is
 Eagle Vision TSi (and Chrysler Concorde and Dodge Intrepid)
 Ford Probe GT
 Geo Prizm LSi
 Lexus SC300
 Mazda Miata MX-5
 Mercedes-Benz C280
 Nissan 300ZX Turbo
 Nissan Sentra SE-R
 Volkswagen Corrado SL-C
 The editors nominated 24 cars for this year's group of the best automobiles offered to the American public, and after four intense days of driving, discussing and evaluating, settled on the above group.
 The criteria: the cars must be fully fledged production models on sale before the February issue reaches newsstands and they must pass the federal government's gas-guzzler rule.
 Two of the All Stars, the Eagle Vision TSi and Mazda Miata MX-5, were past Automobile of the Year winners which this year went to the Dodge/Plymouth Neon (and was announced in the January 1994 issue).
 "These are truly great cars," Davis said about the winners. "We launched this magazine in 1986 with the rallying cry 'no boring cars,' and by that we mean the industry shouldn't build boring cars, the public shouldn't buy them, and we wouldn't be devoting a lot of space to them.
 "We are a magazine for car enthusiasts, by car enthusiasts. Therefore, when we set out to honor a small group of cars, it should be safe to assume that those cars will be as noteworthy for their ability to provide pure automotive pleasure as for their plain workday virtues."
 Founded in 1986, AUTOMOBILE Magazine has been the fastest growing automotive-enthusiast publication in history, having achieved circulation in excess of 500,000 within its first five years. Acclaimed by AdWeek as one of the nation's 10 hottest publications in 1992, AUTOMOBILE Magazine is published by the K-III Magazine Corporation, which also produces Premiere, New York, Seventeen and New Woman.
