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.
2015 Volkswagen Golf R
It's a pricey upgrade over the already excellent GTI, but the 2015 Volkswagen Golf R packs the power and all-wheel drive performance to rival Subaru's WRX STI.
2016 Mercedes-Maybach S600
The 2016 Mercedes-Maybach S600 represents the apex of Mercedes-Benz opulence and technology for those who can afford it's astronomical asking price.
2015 BMW X5 M
The 2015 BMW X5 M seems to defy physics with its performance technology, letting it take turns at tremendous speed, but the sports focus of this SUV takes away some of its practicality.

2015 Jaguar XJL Portfolio AWD
The smooth and quiet 2015 Jaguar XJL makes driver and passenger comfort its top priority. This luxury sedan and its tech may be aging, but they're doing so gracefully.
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.

Among the many crossovers available, the 2016 Kia Sorento appears more tech-forward than most, with an advanced engine, driver assist features and app integration, but a few configuration requirements might turn potential buyers away.
2015 Kia Sedona
The 2015 Kia Sedona competes well with other minivans for ease of driving and fuel economy, and shines for its suite of driver assistance features, but look elsewhere if you want a full-featured built-in rear-seat entertainment system.
2015 Subaru BRZ

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.
2015 Mercedes-Benz GLA250
The 2015 Mercedes-Benz GLA250 is a good-looking and capable entrant in the compact SUV segment with an impressive array of driver assistance tech available, but its ride quality falls short of its premium price.
2015 BMW 740Ld xDrive
It's no surprise that the 2015 BMW 740Ld xDrive is a comfortable cruiser, but the big Bimmer handles like a much smaller sport sedan.
2015 Alfa Romeo 4C

2015 BMW X4

2015 Audi A3 Cabriolet
The little 2015 Audi A3 delivers excellent everyday driving characteristics and useful connected cabin electronics. In Cabriolet form it sacrifices voice command and trunk space, but makes up for it with pure, open-top driving enjoyment.

2015 Infiniti QX80
The massive 2015 Infiniti QX80 boasts luxury transport for six or seven souls, but the smaller QX60 does this job better and more efficiently.
