Acura RLX Sport Hybrid
It took Acura awfully long to come out with their hybrid, but they surely got every thing right.

The engine response is extremely smooth and the electric powerplant gives tons of torque. Comfortable ride, too.

Sous une robe trop discrète se cache un monstre de puissance, de luxe et de technologie.

A great combination of luxury and technology

The RLX Hybrid was a pleasant surprise for me. I was underwhelmed by the base version when I tested it in September 2013, but this hybrid version, while pricey, adds the power and performance that a car in this class needs to be competitive.

Cadillac ATS Coupe
I loved the handling and suspension of the ATS Coupe.

Hyundai Genesis
The quality and refinement found in the Genesis is remarkable, especially given its cost. I can see this machine being a real contender for CCOTY.

Very refined and assuring performance. Overly conservative styling.

Such a modern car with excellent styling inside and out. Great value, solid performance and all-wheel drive is a great standard feature.

Hyundai's got North American luxury and content figured out. And they make it look really good at the same time. Bravo.

The new Genesis is the proof that a Korean constructor is capable to develop a nice luxury car for less.

K900 V8 Elite
Kia is surely catching up fast & furiously with the German & Japanese.
