The Jaguar XF rises toward the top of the class with distinctive good looks, first-rate interior finish, excellent driving capability and a charm some competitors lack. All in all, the XF is one of the most appealing choices in a segment loaded with great cars.

SUV/Truck

The GMC Terrain is best suited to young families or active couples. It seats five in a well-designed, nicely finished cabin, with state-of-the-art powertrains, advanced safety systems and convenience features, and class-leading fuel economy.

Sedan

The Avalon might be Toyota’s best sedan. We think it’s as good as more expensive Lexus models. It’s big and comfortale and quiet. It can accelerate in lively fashion, given its modest engine size, and it returns good fuel economy, given its space and luxurious demeanor.

Coupe

The Bentley Continental GT V8 presents a slight contradiction. It’s more blatantly aggressive than the familiar W12, yet it’s based on a foundation of less conspicuous consumption. By price point, the Continental GT probably pegs the top end for daily drivers.

The ATS is fundamentally solid and inherently balanced. Its three engine options start near the tip in terms of output and technology. The car offers rear- or all-wheel drive out of the box, and its power-to-weight ratios are best in class.

The Santa Fe Sport is attractively priced, with a substantial feature-for-feature retail price edge on key competitors, and it will go toe-to-toe with best that Ford, Honda, Toyota or Volkswagen have to offer, regardless of price.

The Santa Fe Sport is an excellently sorted automotive appliance: functional, economical to operate, smooth, quiet and practical. It’s almost never annoying and it’s engaging to drive. The Sport will go toe-to-toe with the best any mainstream manufacturer offers.
