These are, according to science, the 12 most distracting cars.

A recent study by the American Automobile Association (AAA) and the University of Utah ranked 30 vehicles from the 2017 model year in ?distractibility” or the amount of time needed to perform basic infotainment tasks using their car’s interactive features.
