The 2012 Bentley Continental GT’s performance gear, including all-wheel drive, transmission, and suspension, works sublimely together to deliver an excellent driving experience, but tech-focused drivers will find the cabin electronics subpar for the car’s class.

Hatchback

As a subcompact car, the 2012 Ford Fiesta faces pretty fierce competition. Sync and AppLink give it an impressive techie edge, while the body design and decent fuel economy lend to overall practicality, but the car does not punch above its class in comfort.

Hatchback

The 2012 Volvo C30 R-Design embodies hot hatchback performance with retro style. Its six-speed manual shifts with European precision and the car flies through the corners. Solid cabin electronics are marred by a confused interface.

The 2012 BMW X5 xDrive35i emphasizes onroad handling in the most high-tech SUV available, although it hasn’t conquered the curse of mediocre SUV fuel economy.

The 2012 Aston Martin V8 Vantage Roadster looks like a million bucks and snakes through corners with near-perfect manners. It serves as a fine showpiece, but a balky transmission and poor cabin electronics hurt its everyday drivability.

The 2012 Honda Civic Natural Gas works well as an economical commute car and errand runner, but its average cabin tech falls far short of the cutting edge.

Hatchback

A turbocharger, closer gear ratios, and suspension tuning make the 2012 Fiat 500 Abarth ridiculously fun to drive, but it takes the TomTom navigation option to overcome problems with the cabin tech interface.

The 2012 Mitsubishi i-Miev will fit specific driving situations well, such as a 20-mile suburban commute, but above the base trim level its price comes too close to that of the more capable Nissan Leaf.
