With nary a fault to speak of, it’s quite possible that the Mercedes-Benz S-Class is the best vehicle in the world today.

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.

If you want a pony car from the 2012 model year, the Camaro ZL1 is the one to have. The ZL1 is one of those rare cars that manages to be the perfect on-track tool while still delivering a ride comfort that makes it a viable daily driver.

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 RLX is a very good car that might be let down by its badge. Acura simply doesn’t have the cachet of brands like BMW and Mercedes, and that could hurt the RLX’s sales, no matter how comfortable, quite and competent it might be.

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.

The E-Class has progressed nicely since ditching their CLK roots, but there is still room for improvement — we’re not blown away by the E’s interior appointments and the cars lack driving excitement.

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.
