2015 Maserati GranTurismo Convertible Sport
This is a car that sounds and looks good enough to almost make you forget its other shortcomings. Those looking to buy will do so with their hearts, not their minds.

2016 Subaru Forester
Although boxy in styling, the 2016 Subaru Forester exhibits many practical characteristics, such as a roomy interior and decent fuel economy, then adds extras with its standard all-wheel-drive and adaptive cruise control, making it a good all-around car for non-aggressive drivers.
2016 Hyundai Elantra GT
The 2016 Hyundai Elantra GT boasts a solid level of standard features with standouts that make it feel like a value, as well as optional features that add a premium feel and a premium price.
2016 Jaguar F-Type
The 2016 Jaguar F-type S Coupe is an extraordinarily gorgeous car that backs up its looks with excellent everyday drivability and sports handling. While its infotainment system shows some ambition and handles the basics, its more connected features don't quite hit the mark.
2015 Ferrari California T
This isn't the ideal Ferrari for track hounds, but if you're thinking Mercedes-Benz or Maserati and want something a little bit more, this could be your car.
2015 Jeep Renegade
Although its power delivery can prove problematic, the 2015 Jeep Renegade shows excellent capability for a small SUV, delivering comfortable everyday driving and supporting weekend and vacation activities into snow and wilderness.
2016 Lincoln MKX
The 2016 Lincoln MKX is a solid upgrade over last year's model, but we'd wait until Lincoln updates its dashboard tech.
2015 Mercedes-Benz S-class Hybrid
The 2015 Mercedes-Benz S550 Hybrid adds reasonable fuel economy and a few miles of pure electric driving to an already extraordinarily comfortable, capable and high-tech luxury sedan, brought down only by slow-to-connect onboard data.
2016 Acura MDX
The 2016 Acura MDX fits a useful niche, offering a choice between seven passenger or ample cargo capacity good for those who only occasionally need either. Its high-tech highlights are a bit quirky, though, and may be too much to satisfy some drivers.
2015 Land Rover Range Rover Sport SVR
The 2015 Land Rover Range Rover Sport SVR is insane and the fastest, loudest model in the automaker's history, but it's not the best buy for a high-performance SUV.
