2016 Audi TT roadster
Although pricey, Audi gives the 2016 TT Roadster almost too many high points, delivering a fun weekend driver with the addition of open-top views coupled with a truly innovative electronics interface that will become second-nature for owners.
2016 Hyundai Tucson
The 2016 Hyundai Tucson has a lot to recommend it, just not in this trim.
Pricing not available
2016 Audi Q3
Audi's Q3 boasts excellent tech and a premium feel, but the newer competition has raised the bar, edging out the Audi for performance, cabin space, and efficiency.
2016 Ford Escape
The 2016 Ford Escape exhibits all the practicality of a small SUV and offers an excellent driving experience, with get-in-and-go ease. The new Sync 3 infotainment system responds as well as any tablet or smartphone, and its AppLink feature promises interesting future capabilities from third-party developers.
2015 GMC Sierra 2500 Denali HD
The 2015 GMC Sierra 2500HD Denali adds a few high-tech perks to its old-school work truck frame, helping with navigation and collision avoidance, but the highlight here remains pulling power and load capability.
2015 Audi S8
The 2015 Audi S8 performs extraordinarily well at speed for such a large car, but there are better options for pure luxury. Even due for a generational update, Audi's connected cabin tech remains impressive and useful.
2016 Scion iM
The 2016 Scion iM is an attractive, value-priced compact car with good space, but ultimately middling efficiency and underwhelming driving dynamics.
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.
