2014 Dodge Challenger
“Unlike the original Challenger, which had a shapely "fuselage" body that wrapped under at the rocker panels, the new car is slightly more slab-sided. But that's a good thing because it makes this muscular car, with its 20-in. wheels and tires, look as if it is firmly planted to the tarmac. ” — Road & Track   See More Reviews
2014 MINI Roadster
“[The optional SMG transmission] swaps gears as quickly as any dual-clutch gearbox and even matches revs when we call for a downshift. ” —   See More Reviews
2014 Nissan 370Z
“The 370Z is also notable for more than just its dynamic talents. Surprisingly, the interior is luxurious and the ride is comfortable, so long road trips are possible.” —   See More Reviews
2014 Audi S4
“Even the sound it makes when we lift off the accelerator while barreling into a tight one at the end of a straight is great music.” — AutoWeek   See More Reviews
2014 Audi S5
“The engines, both of them nice pieces that rarely inspire complaint, are nevertheless different in character. The smaller engine somehow makes the car seem smaller than did the V-8, less like a muscle car and more, well, German.” — Car and Driver   See More Reviews
2014 Audi TT
“The [Audi TT's] brakes did not fade in the face of aggressive driving and maintained a consistent feel. ” — New Car Test Drive   See More Reviews
2014 Audi TTS
“Even in sport mode, the [2009 Audi TTS'] magnetic shocks offer the best combination of ride and handling: always firm and never harsh. ” — Car and Driver   See More Reviews
2014 BMW M235
“The expected rapid acceleration produced by the N55 is accompanied by a bit of extra noise from off-throttle exhaust overrun” — Car and Driver   See More Reviews
2014 BMW Z4
“...available with Adaptive M Sport suspension, consisting of computer-controlled adjustable dampers that constantly vary their firmness based on road surface inputs, steering angle and lateral acceleration data. ” —   See More Reviews
2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA45 AMG
“I can't deny that this is a fun car; even non-fans can still have a good time on the road in it. ” — AutoWeek   See More Reviews
2014 Mercedes-Benz SLK250
“It carved through the corners like an Olympic slalom skier and had just the right amount of power to sprint from one turn to the next.” — New Car Test Drive   See More Reviews
2014 Cadillac CTS-V
“That supercharged V-8 drinks from such deep reserves of power and torque that it hardly feels like it's breaking a sweat.” — Motor Trend   See More Reviews
2014 Chevrolet Corvette
“First up is the all-new interior. This is probably the biggest improvement to the car.... it now looks, feels and operates like it's been built to a modern standard.” — TopGear   See More Reviews
2014 Ford Shelby GT500
“...0-to-60 sprint of 3.5 seconds.” — Car and Driver   See More Reviews
2014 Lexus IS F
“The Lexus just kept putting a smile on my face, generating huge lateral grip, demonstrating its remarkable balance, and showing off its big underhood muscle. ” — Automobile   See More Reviews
2014 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG
2014 Mercedes-Benz SLK350
“It carved through the corners like an Olympic slalom skier and had just the right amount of power to sprint from one turn to the next.” — New Car Test Drive   See More Reviews
2014 Porsche Boxster
“The seats are very comfortable and the driving position offers good visibility for a low-slung sports car.” — The Car Connection   See More Reviews
2014 Porsche Cayman
“Nearly 45 percent of the new Cayman body is aluminum” — New Car Test Drive   See More Reviews
2014 Audi RS 5
“This engine is a model of linear, free-revving performance. ” — Automobile   See More Reviews
2014 Audi S6
“The V10 has a guttural growl, braking is stellar, handling is reasonably grippy and well-balanced, and while its power is less prodigious, AWD allows the S6 driver to exploit it in all seasons.” —   See More Reviews
2014 Audi S7
“The results are entirely to our liking. On the road, the S7 feels considerably lighter than it actually is. The car's limits are high, and its fluid responses make it easy to control.” — Car and Driver   See More Reviews
2014 BMW 640
“The 6 Series is a sporting car that can also cruise the boulevard.” —   See More Reviews
2014 Jaguar F-TYPE
“ reality it feels even faster than that on the road, and has a delicious flamboyance to its handling, steering and ride to match.” — Autocar   See More Reviews
2014 Lotus Evora
“The steering and suspension ... help the car respond with near telepathic precision, and the brakes and throttle are equally responsive. ” — Kelley Blue Book   See More Reviews
2014 Mercedes-Benz SLK55 AMG
2014 BMW 650
“It is easy to find a comfortable seating position, at least up front.” — Car and Driver   See More Reviews
2014 BMW M5
“Simply put, the new M5, codenamed F10, is discreetly wicked.” — Road & Track   See More Reviews
2014 Jaguar XK
“Out in the hills the XK continued to impress. The car tackles the twisties with real poise yet never seems to stiffen its ride or responses to the point of severity. The paddle-directed fast upshifts and blipped-throttle downshifts lend real sporting character, and on several occasions we found ourselves drawing to a stop and pulling on both paddles to find neutral, the way it's done in Ferraris and Lamborghinis. That's how authentic the experience is.” — Car and Driver   See More Reviews
2014 Porsche 911
“The purists might question their own judgment when they realize the double-clutch is just a wee bit faster, and just as much fun to operate when you turn to the steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters, which pair especially well with the optional sport wheel. ” — New Car Test Drive   See More Reviews
2014 Audi RS 7
“The RS7 is opulently equipped and spacious inside, and the versatile hatch is eminently practical.” — Car and Driver   See More Reviews
2014 Dodge Viper
2014 Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG
“This uber E-Class packs the most powerful engine ever into the iconic sedan, for a positively mental driving experience.” — Kelley Blue Book   See More Reviews
2014 Mercedes-Benz SL550
“Handling? Let's be honest: There's no way anyone short of a professional race driver could exercise the SL550 on public roads without being a nuisance.” — Road & Track   See More Reviews
2014 Aston Martin V8 Vantage
“While it doesn't float over the obstacles, it soaks them up with skill, surefootedness, and self-assurance. ” — Automobile   See More Reviews
2014 Audi S8
“The Audi S8 is in the running to be named the quietest, smoothest car extant. ” — Motor Trend   See More Reviews
2014 BMW M6
“Unlike regular 6ers, the M6 is equipped with hydraulic assist for the power steering.” — Car and Driver   See More Reviews
2014 BMW M6 Gran Coupe
“Jet up a freeway on-ramp and slide into fast-moving traffic, though, and the M6 suddenly begins to get into its element. It'll do 70 without batting an eye, but one suspects it is happiest closer to 140.” — AutoWeek   See More Reviews
2014 Nissan GT-R
“Just a quick look at the GT-R's spec sheet is enough to qualify it as a supercar.” — The Car Connection   See More Reviews
2014 BMW i8
“The best engine notes are cued by the Aisin six-speed automatic's upshifts. Every rip-braap! from the pipes cleanses the mind of hybrid notions.” — Car and Driver   See More Reviews
2014 Maserati GranTurismo
“Cachet, style, the essence of Italian exotica--these are some of the benefits of owning a Maserati.” — The Car Connection   See More Reviews
2014 Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG
“One of our favorite compact Uber-sedans of the modern age returns with a fresh, yet still thoroughly irascible demeanor based off the updated 2012 C-Class. More significantly, though, is that it'll be offered in both "practical" 4-door form or what will certainly be the highly desirable coupe. ” — Road & Track   See More Reviews
2014 Mercedes-Benz SL63 AMG
“When the seven-speed so-called Speedshift automatic upshifts, the exhaust produces a gratifying pop like a single handclap of applause. It invariably makes passengers say "oooooh."” — Car and Driver   See More Reviews
2014 Aston Martin V8 Vantage S
“Very nice and upscale -- a custom tailored look as opposed to a mass-produced plastic-on-plastic interior.” — AutoWeek   See More Reviews
2014 Audi R8
“If this were a normal car, it might be time for an overhaul - but it's not, and this isn't. Audi is just dotting i's and crossing t's for 2014, with the S tronic dual-clutch automatic the most crucial change in spec.” — Car and Driver   See More Reviews
2014 Aston Martin DB9
“Handling is where the DB9 truly excels, hanging on with passion through swift curves and delivering a civilized experience.” —   See More Reviews
2014 Ferrari California
“...the California's folding hardtop lets it perform double duty as a near-coupe and a convertible; its balance of performance and comfort make it very well-suited to both a spirited canyon run and the daily commute. ” — The Car Connection   See More Reviews
2014 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG
“To drive this new Gullwing coupe is to enjoy automotive performance at the very highest level. It has incredibly quick throttle response, immense power and torque available....” — New Car Test Drive   See More Reviews
2014 Lamborghini Gallardo
“Quick, responsive and highly desirable.” — The Auto Channel   See More Reviews
2014 Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG
“The SL65's secret weapon is its 6.0-liter, direct-injection, twin-turbo V-12, which produces 621 hp and a stump-pulling 738 lb-ft of torque.... ” — Motor Trend   See More Reviews
2014 Ferrari 458 Italia
“The sound of the mid-ships engine is, simply, glorious. ” — The Car Connection   See More Reviews
2014 McLaren MP4-12C
“The combination of compact dimensions, precise steering, and predictable handling means that the 12C can be positioned precisely and with great ease.” — Car and Driver   See More Reviews
2014 Ferrari 458 Spider
“Steering is quick and accurate, body control superb and supple: this is a Ferrari that makes you look good in every sense, without requiring you to be a racing driver in order to be satisfied. ” — TopGear   See More Reviews
2014 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Black Series
2014 Aston Martin Vanquish
“Carbon-fiber body panels replace aluminum, and Aston Martin boasts exhaustive effort at weight control, but also more cabin and cargo volume in a car 6.4 inches wider and a half-inch taller than the one it replaces (wheelbase is identical, and overall length is a tenth of an inch shorter). ” — Car and Driver   See More Reviews
2014 Ferrari 458 Speciale
2014 Ferrari FF
“For the first time in Ferrari history, all four wheels are used to route power to the road.” — Kelley Blue Book   See More Reviews
2014 Ferrari F12berlinetta
“Slip onto a track, and the F12berlinetta's best side comes out, displaying tenacious grip and neck-snapping off-the-line sprints all while emitting the most melodic sound from the big quad exhaust outlets.” — Kelley Blue Book   See More Reviews
2014 Lamborghini Aventador
“The two-seat cabin is futuristic, feeling and looking more like a jet fighter cockpit than a simple street car.” — The Car Connection   See More Reviews
2014 Ferrari LaFerrari

How are models ranked? editors have compiled the most extensive rating database on the internet, drawing upon $20 million of automotive research from CarsDirect and Autodata, and summarizing expert opinion from an extensive group of the leading third party sources. Here is a brief overview of how we do it:

Professional Reviews Ranking: editors analyze car reviews from a range of magazines and websites, distill each down to a quantifiable ranking and then average those rankings to arrive at the Professional Review Rank.

Other Rankings: also ranks vehicles based on criteria such as fuel efficiency, cargo capacity, and comfort and convenience features. You can see some of the data that we have used to rate each vehicle in any given category by expanding the category header on the vehicle detail page. For example, click on the arrow next to "Passenger Space" on the Honda Civic detail page to see the actual measurements for that vehicle's interior. These measurements were stacked up against the interior measurements of all the other vehicles in the compact car segment in order to calculate the Honda Civic's rating in the Passenger Space category. That rating is then used to determine the Honda Civic's overall ranking in the compact car category.
