Every year, the editorial staff over at Automobile magazine take a good, long look at every passenger vehicle on sale in the U.S. to determine ten “All-Star Winners” out of the bunch that they believe are the best vehicles in showrooms at the moment. By means of a vote, they decide without “contorted rules” and categories what their favorite vehicles are. This year, those cars are then subjected to a 1,684 mile road trip around the country, which you can read about here.
In the meantime, here are the ten vehicles chosen by Automobile‘s knowledgable staff as being their favorite vehicles in showrooms today. The following are ranked alphabetically, and the numbers are assigned merely for formatting purposes — number one is no “better” than number 10, or vice versa. All models are from the 2014 model year.
10. Audi A7/S7/RS7
Audi’s (VLKAY.PK) A7 sportback-coupe has been around for a while now, but it now comes in two new and intense flavors. The Audi A7 “continues to epitomize the qualities that have made Audi one of the leading luxury brands — sophistication, style, substance, and comfort. It’s equally wonderful to look at, to sit in, and to drive,” Automobile said. Further, new for 2014, you can now buy the RS7 and all 560 of its horsepowers, giving the car the performance to match its aggressive and elegant looks.
