With more power, fewer emissions and a simpler user interface, the 2013 M5 is easily the best of its breed. If you’re looking for a vehicle that can pull double duty of comfortable cruise and all out track machine, you won’t find anything better.

The Cayenne manages to seamlessly blend the best attributes of a sports sedan and a pure off-roader, while packaging it all with a handsome exterior and thoroughly luxurious interior.

If you have a budget of about $30,000, need the room a four-door sedan and care about having fun while driving, the 2012 Dodge Charger R/T could be the perfect purchase. Nothing else on the market delivers what the Charger R/T does at this price point.

The Durango is one of the true ‘all-rounders’ that just seems to do everything well and looks good doing it. If we were plunking our hard-earned cash down on a three-row SUV, we’d have a tough time walking past the Dodge dealership.

It’s hard to argue with class-leading fuel economy. Throw in a dash of off-road capability, excellent on-road manners and handsome styling and the Pathfinder might just have enough to become the new segment leader.

Hyundai wants you believe that the Equus is a luxury cruiser intended to be chauffer driven, don’t believe it. Instead, it’s a capable driver’s sedan that should have no problem stealing away some sales from the heavy-hitters in the luxury segment.

Although the 2011 Edge features new styling inside and out, we came away most impressed with the car’s added technology. Appropriately, the 2011 Edge goes to 11.
