If you're in the mood for something fun, small, and electric, the 2014 Fiat 500E might be just the ticket. Expected to produce about the same power as a standard Fiat 500, but with an all-electric drivetrain, the 500E promises to be one of the most compact and stylish of the road-going EVs--but it's mostly a "compliance car," so don't expect to see many of theme reach buyers hands outside of a handful of U.S. states.

Subaru is also planning a range of updates for its Forester. The Forester XT continues to be one of our favorite sleeper vehicles, with a new turbocharged flat 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine rated at 250 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. All-wheel drive, room for your gear, a turbo Boxer four, and still small enough to be fun to drive? It's a solid combo, even if the looks are a bit frumpy.

If you'd like a lot more speed with your gear/passenger hauling, not to mention even better handling, you'll have to give up any pretense at sleeper status for the 2013 Porsche Cayenne Turbo S. While the exterior is aggressively Porsche, with large air inlets, big wheels, and huge Turbo S badging, it's the 550-horsepower twin-turbocharged V-8 engine that will really impress, slinging the SUV to 60 mph in just 4.3 seconds and on to 175 mph top speed.
