Hatchback

The Fiesta really is more than the sum of its parts, offering a premium compact suite of features in a subcompact wrapper that looks a whole lot better than the rest of the competition.

Mitsubishi threw all of its eggs into the performance basket, and if this is the kind of omelet you want, you will be richly rewarded. The Evo will bring you unbridled joy behind the wheel long after the tastemakers have moved on to the next “must-have” luxury car.

Buyers looking for solid A-to-B transportation could do much worse than the Cruze 2LT. Chevrolet’s “one-size fits all markets” small car is good enough to expunge the wretched compacts of the past three decades from our collective memories.

The Sonata Hybrid has a distinctive look, and it takes an innovative route to furthering fuel economy. It is perfectly poised to go after an important, but small, niche.

Wagon/CUV

For anybody reading this worried about the Countryman compromising the MINI’s legendary driving experience you can all pop a Xanax, because the Countryman trades off very little performance for a fair bit of utility – as long as you only need to carry four.

With the sheer amount of content on offer, not to mention superior power and fuel economy figures, and styling that’s more German than Japanese, the Sonata 2.0T Turbo presents a compelling case in the mid-size sedan category.

Hatchback

As a vehicle for thrifty non-conformists, the Nissan Juke succeeds admirably. While not without its aesthetic shortcomings, the driving experience delivers enough thrills to put a smile on anybody’s face.
