Meguiar's Nxt Generation.
* Meguiar's Nxt Generation Tech Wax 2.0 and Nu Finish NFP-80
have topped Consumer Reports' latest tests of 19 car waxes, for
liquid and paste, respectively. According to the publication, CR's
tests also revealed that premium car wax brands don't necessarily
out-perform their lower-priced counterparts: liquid or gel waxes from
premium brands like Auto Glym, Eagle One, Mother's, and Zymol
scored lower than products from Nu Finish, and 3M. However, Auto Glym
Super Resin Polish (liquid) and Mother's California Gold Carnauba Cleaner Wax (liquid) were both "recommended," and the
Mother's product is a "CR Best Buy."
Among paste waxes, Mother's FX Engineered SynWax 20011
(recommended), and Mother's California Gold Carnauba Cleaner Wax
05500 were outperformed by Nu Finish NFP-80 and Turtle Wax Synthetic
Paste Polish T-465.
Other products that scored well in the ratings included Turtle Wax
Ice Synthetic Paste Polish (paste), and the liquid Nu Finish NF-76.
Turtle Wax Ice Synthetic Paste Polish and Nu Finish NFP-80 were rated
"excellent" for durability. The Nu Finish NF-76 was rated Very
Good for durability, but gloss improvement was not as good and it left
some staining on plastic parts, CR said.
