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.
