The 2012 Audi A6 provides few surprises. It represents a logical, well-executed evolution of its predecessor. There are few features that are truly outstanding and it fails to move the genre on in any significant way.

Audi’s most sensible car, the 2012 A6 takes on the BMW 5 Series and Mercedes E-Class and seeks to impress the discerning executive with a newfound depth of ability.

This revamped Q5 is apt to attract buyers who like its usable size, sharply tailored interior and clean, if forgettable, design. They’re not likely to notice the lifeless steering or worry that it’s not as flashy as a Range Rover.

The Sports Wagon is a 3 Series sedan that costs only a little more, drives just as well, is arguably better-looking and comes with enough space to serve an average-size family.

Sedan

The 2012 BMW ActiveHybrid 5 is a highly capable and extremely rapid executive express. It’s a fine car, but whether the marginal economy and performance benefits over a 330-hp 535i can justify a hefty price premium is open to debate.

The face-lift has done a fine job of righting the wrongs of the X1. It also has the right engine lineup for the U.S. Throw in a price point that opens the door for a larger chunk of the buying public compared to the 3 Series and it should do just fine, even if it’s a little small for a crossover.

The 2013 McLaren 12C Spider feels like a precise instrument, exquisitely crafted and wonderful to use. McLaren is only really beginning its journey as a supercar manufacturer, and there can be no denying the 12C is an excellent start.

Convertible

The 2012 Mini Roadster Cooper S’s funky styling scores it some points, but it’s not enough to make up for its other notable shortcomings. Mini is justifiably proud of its “go-kart” handling, but it shouldn’t have to be accompanied by a go-kart ride quality.

If the standard coupe is the best all-around 911 ever, then the Cabrio is all that and then some, purists be damned. It’s so close in performance and feel to the coupe that few will notice the difference. Add in the slick-looking top that works better than ever and the allure is undeniable.

The 2012 Porsche Panamera S Hybrid sacrifices its dynamic competence and aural pleasures in favor of fuel-efficiency gains that will only really be felt by urban dwellers. The result is a car that forever feels at war with itself.

There is nothing about the 2012 Volkswagen Tiguan that’s truly exceptional, but it is also hard to criticize and goes about its business with minimal fuss.
