Car and Driver 10Best list cracked by Tesla Model S, BMW 3 Series left off

Filed under: , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Tesla Model S

Car and Driver 10Best LogoCar and Driver is keeping new blood pumping into its annual 10Best cars list with three new entries making it on for 2015 and a perennial favorite falling off. Among the biggest shocks this year is that the BMW 3 Series and 4 Series are no longer named, despite years of some portion of that lineup earning a mention. In another surprise, the Tesla Model S (specifically in S 60 trim to fit under the $80,000 cost cap) makes it to the 2015 roster and is the only electrically motivated member of the group.

Despite the loss of the 3 Series, BMW isn't entirely shut out this year, because the M235i gets its name on the list. Car and Driver argues that the little coupe feels like a welcome throwback to the E46 chassis M3 of the early 2000s. In addition to the Model S, the final newbie to the annual group is the 2015 Ford Mustang GT. The inclusion of these new members knocks the Audi A6/A7 family and Ford Fiesta ST out from the 2014 rundown.

The other seven models carry over from last year, including the Cadillac CTS, Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, Honda Accord, Mazda3, Mazda6, Porsche Boxster/Cayman and Volkswagen Golf/GTI.

The 2015 10Best cars list certainly seems to have something for everyone from the hot hatch fan to the family man and even the green car driver, thanks to the addition of the Tesla. Head over to Car and Driver to read its detailed explanations for each vehicle's inclusion, but if you've got a difference of opinion or just really like the list, let us know in Comments.

Automobile Magazine releases 2014 All-Stars List

2014 Automobile Magazine All-Stars

You never know exactly when it's going to come, but you know that it's going to come, and the Automobile Magazine list of All-Stars is here. Six of the cars that were on the 2013 list have survived into 2014, just two have made the leap from the 2012 roundup, and there are three common names with the 2011 ranking. The only 'two' cars to show up in all of those years and this one: the BMW 3 Series - now the 3/4 Series, and the Porsche Boxster and Cayman. The mighty eleven: Cars were chosen for the single reason that the magazine's editors like them, then they took them on a road trip from Ann Arbor, MI to New Orleans, LA. You can read one rationale for why each car was chosen, you can read a second rationale for each choice in the press release below, and there's also the story of that road trip on Automobile Magazine website if you've still got some time left.

Car and Driver releases 2014 10Best list, Miata’s 8-year run ends [w/video]

2014 Car and Driver 10Best

Change! Unlike last year, in which Car and Driver's 10Best list was populated with almost exactly the same vehicles as the year before - the only change between 2012 and 2013 was that the Scion FR-S/Subaru BRZ twins took the position previously occupied by the Cadillac CTS-V. By contrast, 2014 brings with it several notable additions and subtractions. But first, let's look at what carries over from 2013 to '14: the Audi A6/A7/S6/S7 family, the BMW 3 Series/4 Series family, the Honda Accord, Porsche Boxster/Cayman and Volkswagen Golf/GTI.

That's a mighty fine list of machinery there, to be sure. But you may notice a few glaring omissions, most notably, in our eyes at least, the Mazda MX-5 Miata. For those keeping track, the little Japanese sports car had been on the list for eight consecutive years, ending in 2013, for a total of 14 appearances since hitting the market in 1989. Given the model's age and the rest of this new 10 Best list, we don't think Mazda will be too disappointed, however. Also missing is the Ford Focus/Focus ST and Mustang, which made it in 2013 in GT and Boss 302 guises. Finally, the Honda Fit falls off, along with the aforementioned FR-S and BRZ coupes.

So, fully half of last year's 10Best cars were removed for 2014. Here are the new faces: Want to know the reasoning behind what's leftover and what's brand new? Head on over to Car and Driver for the complete rundown, scroll down below for a video, and feel free to let us know what you think of the magazine's 10Best Cars for 2014 in the Comments.
