2. Cadillac CTS-V Coupe
Part of an already popular line, the new 2011 CTS-V Coupe (MSRP $63,465; 18 city, 27 highway mpg) zooms in at a spectacular 556 hp that promises to compete with much higher price tags. Sleek lines, unbroken by recessed handles, curve into a high back, while a plush interior with French stitching ensures that the coupe is debut ready.
3. Bentley Continental GT
You'll appreciate Bentley's "angel wings" when you slide into the mind-altering, plush haven that is the Continental GT (MSRP $182,800; 10 city, 17 highway mpg)—courtesy of the rich, hand-stitched leather and hand-polished woods, powerful 552-hp engine and assorted touches that include a SIM card reader. Haven? Heaven.
4. BMW Active Hybrid X6
It's still an eye-catching design that you either love or love to hate, but whichever side of the fence you're on, you probably agree that $88,900 is a pretty hefty price tag for an SUV—one that clocks fuel economy at 17 city, 19 highway mpg, far below many segment competitors. What the X6 does offer is power: 480 hp, to be exact, so while you may stop to refuel long before your competitors, you'll be so far ahead of them that it won't matter.
