Top 10 most anticipated cars for 2015

Editors at Cars.com named the 10 most anticipated new cars for 2015. "There's plenty for car shoppers to look forward to in 2015, because there are so many new releases soon to be on sale," said Joe Wiesenfelder, Cars.com's executive editor.

Alfa Romeo 4C

The Italian brand's return to the U.S. market after a 20-plus-year hiatus comes in the form of a curvaceous coupe.

Ford Mustang

The modernly styled Mustang is lighter, wider for 2015 with a new engine option.

Jeep Renegade

The Renegade brings back the blocky, rugged look for which Jeep is known, in a very small package.

BMW i8

The sci-fi looking BMW plug-in hybrid delivers the drama with a long, low, wide body and swing-up doors.

Chevrolet Corvette Z06

Brute power, dynamic handling and head-turning style are three Corvette hallmarks, and the new high-performance Z06 ups the ante on all accounts.

Ford F-150

The truck's makeover for 2015 includes a pumped-up grille, an aluminum body and several new powertrains.

Porsche Macan

Boasting baby Cayenne styling and two engine options, Porsche is following suit with many other luxury automakers by adding this smaller model to its lineup.

Lexus RC F

The RC F strikes a menacing pose backed up by some serious numbers including 450 horsepower.

Mercedes-Benz C-Class

Appearing hugely improved over its predecessor, the 2015 grows in size and offers a suite of high-tech safety features.

Hyundai Sonata

This midsize sedan has always been an affordable, good-looking, feature-packed sedan; a facelift and more features only sweeten the Sonata's appeal.
