Dodge Challenger
The Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat is ferocious, but in a good way. This 707-hp monster has an angry bark and is looking to devour the competition.

Rude, crude and wild. Love it! One of the better manual transmissions.

The noises this car makes, from the supercharger whine to the V8 exhaust rumble, are completely addicting.

How the Hellcat you not be impressed with such a powerful machine? I just wish the steering wasn't so vague. It's nerve-wracking to drive hard through a corner.

Ford Mustang
The Ford Mustang GT is all-new, and the new interior is a huge upgrade over that in previous models of the original pony car.

A Mustang GT has to be V-8 powered!

Volvo V60 Polestar
Who says that a wagon can't be cool? Not Volvo. The Volvo V60 Polestar is a very refined and spacious enthusiast's machine. And the Rebel Blue paint is truly special.

The darkhorse of TestFest, the V60 Polestar is one surprisingly capable performer.

You know what? Much like what happened with the FR-S and BRZ two years ago, I wonder if the Hellcat and 'Stang GT are gonna split the votes, allowing the V60 to cut up the middle? Fantastic seats, the best-looking wheels here, proper hot-hatch performance in a wagon, THAT blue colour; I dunno. There's just something about the V60 that scratches me right where I itch. It's making this category much harder to call than I originally thought, and others seem to agree.

This car surprised me more than anything else I drove this year. It sounds awesome, offers confidence inspiring grip, and is both practical and comfortable.

An unique (Swedish) balance of performance & comfort.
