You might find some who'll argue that. But anyone who simply takes a trip out to a couple of new-car showrooms will find that's actually far from the truth. Many of today's production cars offer expressive designs that scream out; pack futuristic materials and sophisticated chassis systems; run with complex powertrains; and give you interfaces that we might have only dreamed of just a decade ago.
Keeping in mind the spark of innovation, we've taken a look both at the vehicles that will be arriving for model-year 2015, and at the vehicles that we expect might arrive by the end of calendar-year 2015. And from them, we selected some of the most fascinating models on the way.
And because expensive cars often seem more compelling—or is that glamorous?—we made this even more interesting by keeping exotics off the list, and making sure that most of our picks are anticipated to start below $50k.
In the spirit of looking forward to what's fascinating, we've prepared a list of ten. There are indeed a few boring cars on the market today; but these upcoming models in the pages ahead certainly won't be among them.
