Let's see: you want the utility of a four-door, but you want the sleek styling of a hatchback. The 2015 Audi A7 Sportback can give you both. This "five-door coupe" has been completely refreshed, with your choice of five engines — two gas, three diesel, ranging in power from 218 to 330hp — wheels ranging from 17 to 21 inches, available MMI touch infotainment system with optional built-in LTE-powered Wi-Fi, an optional Bang & Olufsen sounds system, Matrix LED headlights, adaptive cruise control, a night vision assistant, and a pre-sense safety system. Plus, you know, the aluminum and high-tech steel body doesn't look to shabby, either.
The future is still bright for those looking to drive a seriously-powerful American-made muscle car off the lot — and the 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat is just the car for them. Billed as the most powerful Chrysler engine made to date, this supercharged 6.2-liter Hemi V8 produces over 600 horsepower, making it a highly-capable track car. All this power goes through either a six-speed manual transmission or an eight-speed TorqueFlite automatic. Multiple drive modes let you customize the ride and horsepower depending on whether you're headed to the track or just driving to work, while Brembo brakes and forged-aluminum wheels help improve the driving experience.
Nissan's high-performance brand NISMO has long been associated with speed — and the 2015 Nissan 370Z NISMO is no exception. This souped-up coupe features a GT-R-inspired body kit, 19-inch super-lightweight wheels, Recaro seats, a 350-horsepower 3.7L V6 engine, a 6-speed manual or 7-speed automatic transmission, an exclusive exhaust system that adds 18 horsepower, a refined 4-wheel independent suspension, large brakes, and your choice of four race-friendly liveries: red, black, silver, or white.
To celebrate the end of the line for the model, the guys from Detroit have announced a special limited edition 2015 Cadillac CTS-V Coupe — kitted out with a black grill, matte black wheels, red Brembo brake calipers, and available in a gorgeous black finish. Inside you'll find upgrades throughout, with Recaro racing seats with red details, metal control surfaces, a suede-covered steering wheel and shifter, and wood trim. It still comes with the impressive power plant you expect: a 6.2-liter supercharged V8 with 556 horsepower available with either a six-speed manual or automatic. Limited to only 500 units, you could pick yours up in white or gray instead of black — but who would want to do that?
