Top 10 Best Cars of 2014

January 1, 2015

Happy New Year! As we all look forward to 2015, now is a good time to look back and reflect on the best cars of 2014 - there are still a lot of them left on dealer lots, and many of them come with great deals.

So which cars came on top last year? According to Consumer Reports, The Tesla Model S won hands down due to its excellent handling, acceleration, styling and controls. The second best car of 2014 was the BMW M235i, which also ranked tops in handling and styling. Also on the top 10 list are the Mercedes-Benz S550, Audi A8, Chevrolet Impala, and Infiniti Q70.

If you're considering purchasing any top ranking vehicles, make sure to use TrueCar No Haggle and Edmunds Price Promise for the best deals in your area.

My Recommendation for Car Shoppers

TrueCar, Edmunds, and 1-800 Car Show are the quickest way to see the lowest car prices in your area. These sites show you no-haggle prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually really good. This should be the first step you take when negotiating your car price. Follow this up with my checklist to make sure you squeeze out every last bit of savings.

California Residents - Important:

There is a new online car buying service called Roadster, available only to California residents, which I highly recommend you try - especially if you hate the stress of haggling with a car salesman. They provide an expert concierge who negotiates the price of the car and delivers it to your home with zero hassle - you never have to interact with a dealership. Here is my in-depth review of Roadster and why I recommend it.
