Which cars are beautiful? Plenty of vehicles are undeniably handsome, or good-looking, or at least styled well.
And then there are those that deserve a pile-on of adjectives: timeless, crushworthy, gorgeous.
Those cars merit some special attention--and at The Car Connection they merit the highest rating we give in our styling category. As we review more than 250 new vehicles every year, we rate them all across six categories. Among those new and continuing models, we give only a handful a perfect score of 10 for styling.

That perfect 10 represents a peerless look, among all cars or among vehicles in a certain class. It can also represent a purity of form that's as close to ideal as possible, given the chosen duty--the essence of form-follows-function philosophy.
This year, the vehicles that have earned our highest styling score include some of the most desirable new vehicles on the road--including everything from Aston Martins and Lamborghinis to a fantastic new Nissan. Beautiful? Each one earns the tag, even if some shapes aren't as hormonal or as naturally elegant as other body styles.
According to our editors, these are most beautiful vehicles of 2015:
The 4C began life as a concept car at the Geneva Motor Show in 2011, and it's translated almost perfectly to reality. It's low-slung and outrageously sexy.
