  • Best Sub­com­pact: 2013 Mini Coop­er — “The Mini Coop­er is the far supe­ri­or sub­com­pact car. It’s bet­ter to dri­ve, bet­ter made and bet­ter to behold. The Mini is a car that is desired regard­less of its size, and in some cas­es because of it.”
  • Best Mid­size Sedan: 2013 Nis­san Alti­ma — “In total, the Alti­ma is the nicest to dri­ve, the eas­i­est to use and cheap­est to fuel. When it comes to a fam­i­ly sedan, those qual­i­ties make it the best.”
  • Best Lux­u­ry Sedan: 2014 Mer­cedes-Benz S-Class — “Not only is the recent­ly redesigned S-Class the best lux­u­ry sedan you can buy, one could cer­tain­ly argue it’s the best car in the world… The design is supreme­ly ele­gant, the mate­ri­als exquis­ite and the fea­ture con­tent tru­ly stag­ger­ing.”
  • Best Con­vert­ible: 2013 Bent­ley Con­ti­nen­tal GTC — “When [the roof is] low­ered, the cab­in remains notably serene with the wind deflec­tor in place, so your dri­ving companion’s immac­u­late­ly craft­ed coif­fure will remain unfussed. The Bent­ley Con­ti­nen­tal rep­re­sents top-down motor­ing at its absolute finest.”
  • Best Sports Car: 2014 Chevro­let Corvette — “The all-new C7 Corvette has been trans­formed into a 100-per­cent gen­uine, world-class sports car that looks great, goes like hell and is built to a stan­dard that now war­rants its price.”
