  1. Ford Mustang

    1. Ford Mustang (33.3%)

    What says:
    Even without any dramatic changes for this year, the 2014 Ford Mustang continues to offer style, thrills and value. It's our top pick among muscle cars.

  2. Chevrolet Camaro

    2. Chevrolet Camaro (30.0%)

    What says:
    For tire-burning power and Hollywood looks, it doesn't get much better than the 2014 Chevrolet Camaro. The reintroduced Z/28 model is sure to thrill around a racetrack as well.

  3. Mazda MX-5 Miata

    3. Mazda MX-5 Miata (20.0%)

    What says:
    The 2014 Mazda MX-5 Miata maintains its position as one of the best roadsters ever built, with equal parts fun and refinement in a compact and affordable package.

  4. Volkswagen Beetle

    4. Volkswagen Beetle (5.1%)

    What says:
    The 2014 Volkswagen Beetle convertible pays proper homage to an icon of the past, but it's thoroughly modern in important areas such as features and performance.

  5. Chrysler 200

    5. Chrysler 200 (4.3%)

    What says:
    Although it's hard to make a case for the 2014 Chrysler 200 sedan, which is smaller and less fuel-efficient than its midsize rivals, the 200 convertible remains a good choice if you want an open-air driving experience and need seating for four.

  6. Mini Cooper Convertible

    6. Mini Cooper Convertible (3.5%)

    What says:
    It may not be a very practical car, but with its personable, spritely demeanor, the 2014 Mini Cooper is a great pick for a small hatchback or convertible.

  7. Mini Cooper Roadster

    7. Mini Cooper Roadster (2.1%)

    What says:
    It has some drawbacks to be sure, but the 2014 Mini Cooper Roadster is still an appealing choice for a fun and personable roadster that can be had on a reasonable budget.

  8. Fiat 500C Abarth

    8. Fiat 500C Abarth (1.4%)

    What says:
    The 2014 Fiat 500 isn't the most practical or logical choice for an economy car. But what do you expect from something Italian? If you're shopping for a personable small car, the 500 is worth a look.

  9. Smart Fortwo

    9. Smart Fortwo (0.5%)

    What says:
    While the 2014 Smart Fortwo can be parked almost anywhere, a major plus for city dwellers, its unrefined powertrain and questionable value proposition make it hard to recommend.
