  1. 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe

    1. 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe (24.3%)

    What says:
    The 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe deserves consideration if you're shopping for a large, truck-based SUV with impressive towing capacity. But for everyday passenger and cargo use, a large crossover SUV might be a better choice.

  2. 2015 Acura MDX

    2. 2015 Acura MDX (11.6%) - Tie

    What says:
    The 2015 Acura MDX is a top pick for a three-row luxury crossover, offering abundant refinement, luxury and comfort at a relatively reasonable price.

  3. 2015 Ford F-150

    2. 2015 Ford F-150 (11.6%) - Tie

    What says:
    The redesigned 2015 Ford F-150 may not look all that different, but those familiar lines disguise what is unquestionably the most sophisticated and capable version of this best-selling pickup ever to hit the road.

  4. 2015 Jeep Wrangler

    4. 2015 Jeep Wrangler (6.7%) - Tie

    What says:
    An SUV unlike any other, the 2015 Jeep Wrangler offers exceptional off-road capability, though its lack of refinement makes it an acquired taste.

  5. 2015 Chevrolet Corvette

    4. 2015 Chevrolet Corvette (6.7%) - Tie

    What says:
    With its improved automatic transmission and reinvented, ridiculously fast Z06 variant, the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette bolsters its credentials as the world's best performance-car bargain.

  6. 2015 Hyundai Genesis

    6. 2015 Hyundai Genesis (6.0%)

    What says:
    The Hyundai Genesis has always offered plenty of features at a very agreeable price. But this year's redesigned 2015 Genesis has all that, plus the quality interior and overall refinement it was missing previously. It's a top choice for a luxury sedan.

  7. 2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class

    7. 2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class (5.6%)

    What says:
    With striking style, a luxurious interior and high-tech safety and driver assistance features, the 2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class is one of the best cars you can buy among small sport luxury sedans and coupes.

  8. 2015 Volvo V60 Cross Country

    8. 2015 Volvo V60 Cross Country (4.9%) - Tie

    What says:
    Combining a sleek wagon body with the ride height and capabilities of a crossover, the 2015 Volvo V60 Cross Country is an intriguing concept, though its limited interior space may give some shoppers pause.

  9. 2015 Ford Mustang

    8. 2015 Ford Mustang (4.9%) - Tie

    What says:
    The 2015 Ford Mustang brings the iconic pony car into a more fuel-efficient future without sacrificing any of its trademark swagger or performance.

  10. 2015 Volkswagen Golf

    10. 2015 Volkswagen Golf (4.5%)

    What says:
    The redesigned 2015 Volkswagen Golf delivers competitive performance, comfort and refinement. For a small hatchback, it's a worthy consideration.

  11. 2015 Honda Fit

    11. 2015 Honda Fit (4.1%)

    What says:
    A roomier cabin and improved fuel economy allow the redesigned 2015 Honda Fit to maintain its place as one of the top choices in the subcompact car segment.

  12. 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata

    12. 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata (3.7%) - Tie

    What says:
    Neither exotic nor supercar, the MX-5 Miata remains Mazda's halo car, a roadster that distills the automaker's philosophy of fun, inspired driving into an ultra-compact two-seater. For 2016, the Miata will be smaller and lighter, but should remain one of the most rewarding convertibles you can buy.

  13. 2016 Toyota Mirai

    12. 2016 Toyota Mirai (3.7%) - Tie

    What says:
    The 2016 Toyota Mirai is a hydrogen fuel cell powered electric car. Much quicker "refueling" and longer range are the big advantages over more traditional battery-powered electrics.

  14. 2015 Chrysler 200

    14. 2015 Chrysler 200 (1.5%)

    What says:
    With a more powerful base four-cylinder engine and a thoroughly overhauled interior, the midsize 2015 Chrysler 200 sedan has what it takes to fight for a spot in your driveway.
