2012 Audi A7

The Audi A7 evokes the best of European refinement, while at the same time sporting the newest technology both under the hood and in the cabin. It is a definite executive-level gift.

2012 Fiat 500C Convertible

Cute and cheap, the little Fiat 500C is a great fit in urban environments, not only because you can park it anywhere, but also for its retro Italian style. Put a hook on top and hang it from the Christmas tree.

Jabra Freeway Bluetooth speakerphone

This is easily the loudest and clearest visor-mounted Bluetooth speakerphone that we've tested--both great accolades to claim when operating in a noisy environment such as a car's cabin. As a nice bonus, the Freeway's bass response is good enough for music listening as well.

ContourRoam waterproof sports camera

The ContourRoam is the newest and cheapest entry in Contour's family of wide-angle action cameras. It's also the easiest to use of the sports cameras that we've tested, with an idiot-proof control scheme that's as easy as slide-and-go.

The 2012 update adds Aha Radio integration to an already robust feature set that includes Pandora Internet Radio connectivity and voice command for iPod playback, hands-free calling, and navigation.
