2015 Mini Cooper S 4-Door
Larger, with more doors and a more powerful engine, the 2015 Mini Cooper S, in 4-Door trim, broadens its appeal while retaining its unique looks -- but tread carefully on the option sheet as the price can get very high.
2015 Lexus LS 460 sedan
Big on comfort and just plain large, the 2015 Lexus LS 460L continues to define the brand and proves to be an equal to the German luxury competition.
2015 Chevrolet Trax
The simple, savvy 2015 Chevrolet Trax sets only modest expectations, but it meets them handily while presenting a significant price advantage over competing models.

2015 Subaru BRZ
The 2015 Subaru BRZ is an outstanding sports coupe for drivers who value handling prowess over outright power, but for the money there are so many compelling alternatives.
2015 Toyota Camry

The 2015 Lexus RC 350 F Sport looks like a boy racer, but it has the soul (and slightly soft performance) of a grand tourer.
2015 Tesla Model S P85D
With ridiculous acceleration, the 2015 Tesla Model S P85D serves as an excellent example of the potential for electric cars and boasts updates that make it compare well feature-for-feature with competitive luxury cars, but most buyers should consider the Model S 85D, trading acceleration for longer range.
