Motor Authority's Best Car To Buy 2015: The Nominees

Follow Nelson

Every year, Motor Authority’s editors drive and rate hundreds of cars, including dozens of the best luxury and performance cars. At the end of the year, we look back over the new models introduced to the world and select the best—our Best Car To Buy award.

For our Best Car To Buy 2015, we’ve narrowed the list down to a still-large collection of 15 vehicles. It was a very good year for new sports cars, luxury sedans, and high-end crossovers.

So what makes a car Motor Authority’s Best Car To Buy? It's not necessarily the fastest, most luxurious, the most fun-to-drive, or even the best-looking car to come out this year. A balance of all of these factors, and more (call it an ineffable quality of simply being), combines to make us want the car for ourselves--and drives us to recommend the car for you, the enthusiast, as a fun and functional addition to your own personal fleet.

Without further ado, here are our 15 finalists for the Best Car To Buy 2015 award:

Alfa’s limited re-entry to the U.S. market is a stripped-down, no-nonsense sports car with a slight luxury twist and a definite air of the exotic. Behind the wheel, it’s a truly impressive little beast.
