At their core, the Mitsubishi Lancer and Lancer Evolution are tried and true econo-cars. While you sure won't need to dig deep to see that, these models also stand out for their relatively sporty driving manners—and we're not just pointing to the amped-up, all-wheel-drive Evolution.
For most of our lives, the words "Made in China" have suggested products of poor quality -- cheap, disposable things that weren't meant to last. Chinese automaker Geely is anxious to see how Americans react to "Made in China" labels on cars when it ships over the Chinese-made Volvo S60 Inscription later this year.
The 2015 Jeep Renegade has only recently started arriving at dealerships; yet it’s already looking like quite a winning complement to another vehicle in Jeep’s lineup that we already like: the Cherokee.
2015 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350
When the all-new Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 goes on sale later this year, a few lucky buyers will be able to get their hands on an ultra-collectible 2015 model year example, which Ford is building to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the original Shelby GT350 launched back in 1965. Just 137 examples bearing a 2015 VIN will be built before production switches over to 2016 model year cars.

2016 Toyota Mirai
Toyota does not like battery-electric cars, and the world's largest carmaker isn't shy about that sentiment. Through numerous ads and statements from its executives, the carmaker has repeatedly criticized the short ranges and long charging times of battery-electric vehicles.
Car buyers today have far more information than they did just 15 years ago, and they're using it. Google says that three-quarters of all auto shoppers now do hours of research before they ever visit a dealer.
It's now clear that we'll see a slew of all-electric luxury vehicles with ranges of 200 miles or more from German makers Audi, BMW, and Mercedes-Benz starting in 2017 or 2018. What's less clear is whether those vehicles will be developed as electric cars from the ground up or whether they'll be adapted versions of gasoline models.
