By Mark Fulmer

AUTO CENTRAL - December 31, 2012: These five cars are all 2012 models with the exception of the FR-S, which is a 2013. They have been selected out of this past year's available press fleet and have three qualities that are personal preferences of mine:

   1. Fun To Drive
   2. Distinctive technology/engineering/style
   3. Cost Effectiveness

So if you are in the market, I highly recommend that you test drive any of all of these. And Happy New Year from all of us at The Auto Channel!
