All the news from Computex 2014, the largest IT tradeshow in Asia.
The following cars represent the most technically advanced available.
Mercedes-Benz takes a big step forward with its 2014 S550 flagship sedan, improving just about every feature in this model update, but app integration suffers from slow connection times.
Pricing not available
The 2014 Mini Cooper benefits from a small but powerful engine, and connected cabin tech with a bit of whimsy, but its handling feels more grown up than the previous generation's.
With its new appearance, 2014 Lexus GX 460 is a competent full-size luxury SUV, but its powertrain and dashboard tech could also use an update to keep up with the competition.
The 2014 Nissan Rogue comes out with many tech features not available among the competition and offers excellent utility for an economy crossover, but it could use further refinement, such as better integration for connected features.
The usefulness of connected features outweighs their hodgepodge organization in the 2014 BMW X5 xDrive35i, and the mediocre fuel economy might be a price worth paying for the excellent driving dynamics.
The Tesla Model S not only looks good, it drives exceedingly well while running with electric efficiency, but we would like to see more of the driver-assistance features found on comparably priced cars.
The big-screen Origin PC Eon17-S gaming laptop won't win any design contests, and isn't particularly portable, but our high-end config was great where it counted -- running new games at high detail settings.
The 2014 Mazda MX-5 Miata is an excellent driver's car that is best experienced without expensive bells and whistles. Skip the options and just enjoy the ride.
Though big for a Fiat model, the 2014 Fiat 500L is still small for a wagon or crossover that boasts so much interior volume. However, limited tech and performance have us reconsidering the competition.
The 2014 Scion tC delivers a strong power-train and a well-sorted suspension on a budget, leaving it to the driver to add most of the tech via the aftermarket.
