Quick Specs
7.6
The 2015 Lexus CT 200h is the industry's only small luxury hatchback that's also a hybrid, and it's considerably more fun than you might expect.
7.8
The 2015 Volkswagen Golf and GTI trade flashy looks for great interior and cargo space, especially in the SportWagen model—but they don't give up anything for driving fun.
8.2
The 2015 Mercedes GLA isn't the roomiest small crossover, but it's a stylish vehicle with a double shot of urban attitude--and a dash of ruggedness--that looks fully up to Mercedes-Benz luxury standards.
8.2
The 2015 Subaru WRX is no quicker than before, but beautifully balanced handling and spot-on steering are better than ever.
