The Kia Optima Hybrid wowed us with its advanced drivetrain and great cabin tech, but slightly disappointing fuel economy and odd cabin tech packaging keep this green car from getting top marks.
The 2011 Volkswagen Jetta SEL makes for decent, if unexciting, transportation and includes a good suite of cabin electronics.
The 2011 Volvo S60 is a very enjoyable premium sedan, capable of sporty driving on the weekends and perfectly comfortable for an everyday commute. Frequently distracted drivers will appreciate the safety tech.
The Chrysler 200 Touring improves quite a bit on its predecessor, the Sebring, but its cabin quality and tech options still fall short of what we'd consider entry-level luxury.
The 2011 Dodge Charger is a competent driver with very useful cabin electronics. But the 2012 model will feature a much-improved transmission.
Although the 2011 Nissan Quest offers good maneuverability and plenty of usable interior space, its tech offerings lag considerably behind the competition.
The WD TV Live (2011) offers a solid combination of must-have streaming services and excellent USB and network file support, making it one of the best devices of its kind available for under $100.
A convertible SUV, the 2011 Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet carves out its own niche, but it's an odd-looking design with some serious problems. Its technology is Nissan-standard, very good in the cabin, but becoming dated under the hood.
The 2011 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid makes for a high-tech cruiser. It's a comfortable car with impressive body styling and useful cabin electronics.
The 2011 Audi A4 comes with a high-tech engine and transmission and some excellent cabin tech features, making it an easy driver and very comfortable.
