The Best New Cars

1 . Audi A3

The 2015 Audi A3 sedan 2.0t quattro features cuttingedge technology, bold, handsome styling and the brilliant TFSI turbo four cylinder engine, all wrapped in a stiff, capable chassis. It accelerates quickly while still returning up to 33 mpg on the highway.

2 . Chrysler 200C

Redesigned completely, the new Chrysler 200C now offers a 9speed automatic transmission, an available 295horsepower V6 and all wheel drive. Its chassis is based on the capable Alfa Romeo Giulietta platform.

3 . Jaguar Ftype Coupe

The coupe version of the Jaguar FTYPE is arguably even more beautiful than the convertible. It marries classic sports car aesthetics with modern performance and plenty of luxury touches.

4 . Toyota Avalon

Toyotas longrunning fullsize sedan is back with a bold new look that is a far cry from the reserved styling of its forerunners. The Avalons 3.5liter V6 is carried over from the outgoing model, providing the same solid performance and fuel efficiency. Best of all, a base price of just over $30,000 means that buyers can indulge in attractive extras like touchscreen DVD navigation, smartphone integration and an elevenspeaker JBL premium sound system.

5 . Alfa Romeo 4C

Heralding the return of the famed Italian marque to the US, the Alfa Romeo 4C is a lightweight, turbocharged midengine sports car with a carbon fiber chassis and a nofrills interior.

6 . Chevrolet Impala

Toyotas longrunning fullsize sedan is back with a bold new look that is a far cry from the reserved styling of its forerunners. The Avalons 3.5liter V6 is carried over from the outgoing model in order to provide the same solid performance and fuel efficiency. Best of all, a base price of just over $30,000 means that buyers can indulge in attractive extras like touchscreen DVD navigation, smartphone integration and an elevenspeaker JBL premium sound system.

7 . BMW 228i

Replacing the outgoing 1 Series coupe, the BMW 2 Series follows the current BMW practice of producing sleeker, more fuelefficient cars. Too radical of a departure to retain its 1 Series badge, this compact sports coupe is slightly larger than its predecessor and is powered by a turbocharged 2.0liter inline4 that propels it from 060 in 5 seconds flat while earning up to 36 mpg highway.

8 . Ford CMAX Energi

As Fords first dedicated hybrid, the CMax strikes a good balance between fuel savings and drivability. Featuring a 2.0liter inline4 paired with a lithiumion batterypowered motor, our plugin Energi model offered effortless performance while still earning an EPAestimated 100 MPGe.

9 . Kia K900

Based on a stretched version of the upcoming Hyundai Genesis sedan, the new flagship luxury car from Kia features advanced telematics, a long list of standard amenities and a 420horsepower V8.

10 . Acura TLX

Replacing both the midsize TL and compact TSX for 2015, the Acura TLX aims to be the Japanese premium brands jack of all trades. Powered by either a 2.4liter inline4 mated to an 8speed dualclutch transmission or a 3.5liter V6 mated to a 9speed conventional automatic, the TLX should provide smooth performance and improved fuel economy.
