On June 27, 2017, Doug DeMuro launched the DougScore a new system for evaluating cars he reviews.

The DougScore has 10 separate categories, which are each judged on a scale of 1 through 10 — with "1" being the worst, and "10" being the best, meaning the highest possible DougScore is 100.

The ten categories are split into two separate groups: "Weekend" and "Daily."

The "Weekend" categories measure a car’s appeal to enthusiasts; in other words, how much fun it would be to drive on the weekend.

The "Daily" categories meanwhile, focus on a car’s livability and practicality.

DeMuro posts the DougScores of all the cars he has reviewed in a public Google Sheets file. [18] [17]

The current "Weekend" categories are styling, acceleration, handling, fun factor, and cool factor.

The current "Daily" categories are features, comfort, quality, practicality, and value.
