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.
Visit manufacturer site for details.
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.
2016 Mazda CX-3
Small in stature and a tad light on utility, the 2016 Mazda CX-3 hustles to the front of its burgeoning segment on the strength of its looks, dynamics, interior polish and technology.
2015 Ford Edge
Redesigned for the 2015 model year, the Ford Edge is a classy-looking crossover with cabin materials that elevate it into premium territory. Engine choices and ride quality emphasize practicality, making it a top crossover if you can ignore the fussy infotainment interface.
2015 Honda Civic Si sedan
The 2015 Honda Civic Si's new HondaLink tech is flawed, but still slightly better than the competition's. However, its performance is starting to lag behind the younger, more powerful models.
2016 Acura ILX
The 2016 Acura ILX undercuts other comparably-equipped premium cars in price, and while it offers some impressive cutting edge features, falls down in overall driving quality.
2015 Ford Mustang
The 2015 Ford Mustang GT is not only an excellent and powerful entrant to a historic model line, but also a very fine example of a modern sports coupe, leaving out cabin electronics that fall behind the competition.
2015 Honda CR-V
The 2015 Honda CR-V makes modest improvements to efficiency, safety and tech across the board, but faces very stiff competition from younger challengers.
2016 Nissan GT-R
Nissan's GT-R is an icon, but one that's definitely in need of a refresh.
2015 Ford F-150
The 2015 Ford F-150 continues to evolve and refine itself with new aluminum construction, a smart EcoBoost engine and luxurious amenities, but we'd advise waiting until the 2016 model year when the new Sync 3 tech arrives.
2015 Mercedes-Benz S550 Coupe
With its stunning looks, the 2015 Mercedes-Benz S550 Coupe sets a new bar for driving comfort, yet can also handle twisty roads with confidence and power. While it carves a path toward the self-driving car of the future, its Internet features let it down.
2015 BMW M5
The 2015 BMW M5 tries to be all things to all drivers: comfortable, configurable, and brutally fast. With the aid of a lot of expensive technology, it delivers on nearly all fronts.
