When it comes to cars and choosing the best model variant, it is difficult because of the diversified choices that are available in the market today. Every other car release is accompanied by a fanfare claiming it to be a superstar. You have sedan, hatchbacks, SUVs, etc. I mean the list goes on and on, but at least the variables on which these cars are chosen remain the same – speed, performance, design, safety, etc. So these variables considered, we bring to you a mixture of cars from different segments which would provide you the best return for your buck in 2014.
1. Audi A6
Audi A6 has had many revamp and redesign, but at the core the sedan remains true to Audi’s engineering. Priced between $43,000 and $73,000, it possesses beautifully crafted interiors, fuel economy to brag and a vividly engaging and competent handling. Definitely well wound sporty exterior with fast engines capable of producing upwards of 200hp and up till 420hp among its various engine variants, the Audi A6 definitely stands tall in the list.
2. Audi A7
A7 is truly gorgeous and we mean it. Better than its sibling A6, it’s described as a four-door coupe with a sexy design depicts more a crossover breed between a sedan and a hatchback. The front may look similar to the A6 but it’s a more versatile machine. Its subtle yet distinguished finishes, comfort, and opulent interiors explain the master craftsmanship which went into the car. The outstanding mileage, large boot space and loads of features make the Audi A7 the most attractive car around. It probably deserves to be on the list more than the A6 despite a steeper price tag ranging from $64,000 to $105,000.
3. Audi S7
We figured why not continue the flow and name another one of Audi’s gems – the 2014 S7. There is no ranking order here, so the mention of S7 below the 2 other Audi members should not infuriate fans because to be honest, S7 is one of the most well-rounded machines out there. With an all-wheel drive system that will be a match to any road condition, this car will thrill you with a power level of 420hp. In the looks department, a menacing grill and bumper gives it more aggression than the A7. Its interior leather covered aesthetics are also undeniably luxurious with a great number of safety features to boot and despite being performance centered, its economy is satisfactory. Priced $79,000 to $81,000, the Audi S7 is a car that can get you hooked.
4. BMW 3-Series
It is priced so economically between $32,000 and $47,000 for a car of its stature, there was no way we could have left it out of this list. BMW’s most understated ace, the 3-series has a good range of power to generate 180hp to 240hp depending on its variants. The graceful poise with which it conducts its handling, the efficient safety features, the excellent fuel economy and well spacious interior makes the 3-Series a brilliant buy at affordable price.
5. BMW 4-Series
The BMW 4-Series seems to put the right foot forward with its critically acclaimed turbocharged engines churning out a great amount of power ranging from 240hp to 300hp with the option of keeping the rear wheel drive or upgrading it to the all-wheel system. The 4 series is slightly costlier than its similarly named sibling, the 3-series standing at a range of $41,000 to $56,000. It justifies the higher price tag with a sportier design combined with high quality interiors and lower ground clearance. All the BMW 4-Series variants give an edgier appearance and are available in both manual and automatic transmission systems.
6. Cadillac CTS
Cadillac has really stepped up its game with the CTS, maybe the most brazen of all the cars in this list. For the price range between $39,000 and $67,000, it offers an extensive choice of powerful engines equipped with a 6 speed automatic or manual drive churning out power ranging 272hp to 321hp. It also provides both rear and all-wheel drive systems. Looking further, the American heritage continues with interiors that never stop getting better and a comfortable sound interior to protect your ears from all that power. From various attempts, starting from 2001, Cadillac can finally announce their rise to world with the 2014 CTS and quite possibly a good family car too.
7. Chevrolet Corvette Stingray
Chevrolet’s Stingray first launched in 1953 is known mostly for being the oldest sports car in U.S.A’s automotive history. Its latest redesign while honoring its lineage and history makes the car feel youthful and dynamic.

The comprehensive suspension system combined with the V8 engine underneath roars to a 455 horsepower with additional performance laden features provides a charismatic aura to the new edition and with great fuel economy included, it just goes up to the roofs and screams value for money at the top of its lungs.
8. Mazda 3
Mazda 3 is priced between $16,000 and $26,000, so it came as no surprise when it landed the award for value for money and best hatchback and compact car for families. The Mazda 3 deserved these awards because it competes with costlier cars by providing the same characteristics of a powerful engine, an upscale well refined interiors, fuel economy that is brilliant, sporty and nimble handling and a long list of technological features installed which all combine to make Mazda 3 look and feel costlier than it is, and after all, we all love a good bargain.
