If you want an Impreza that's a bit more fun, opt for the 268-horsepower WRX. (2015 model shown.)

It's available with either a manual or continuously variable transmission, the latter of which isn't too bad for this performance sedan.

The Maxima being on this list proves that interesting styling isn't always a hit against resale value.

Its funky styling has migrated to a host of other Lexus vehicles, as well, and don't expect that trend to stop.

Sports Car: Porsche 718 Cayman

The engine note might not be as good, but it sure as hell handles every bit as well as the old one.

High Performance Car: Ford Shelby Mustang GT350

If the regular Ford Mustang isn't enough for you, perhaps the Shelby Mustang GT350 is enough.

High Performance Car: Ford Shelby Mustang GT350

Its flat-plane-crank V8 engine will scream its way up to a ludicrously high rev limiter.

Electric Vehicle: Chevrolet Bolt EV

Many other EVs on the market are limited in market size and on the old side, so it's no wonder the Bolt is on this list.

Do you need an SUV the size of a small house? The Suburban is worth looking at, then. (2015 model shown.)

Luxury Compact Crossover/SUV: Porsche Macan

Porsche's Macan might not be long in the tooth, but the Audi Q5 underneath that sheet metal is.

Luxury Compact Crossover/SUV: Porsche Macan

The Macan impressed us with its excellent specs that translated to a sublime drive when the going got twisty.

Luxury Mid-Size Crossover/SUV: Lexus RX

You can't pass a single bank in town without seeing at least one of this puppies parked in the employee lot out back.

Luxury Full-Size Crossover/SUV: Lexus LX

The Lexus LX is little more than a tarted-up Toyota Land Cruiser. (2016 model shown.)

38 of 44 Emme Hall/Roadshow

Luxury Full-Size Crossover/SUV: Lexus LX

But since this is a luxury category, the Land Cruiser can't win, so the honor goes to its Lexus variant.

Minivan: Toyota Sienna

It's a Toyota built for families. Would you expect it to sell for pennies on the dollar so soon after being released?
