Compact Luxury Sport: Mercedes-Benz SLK-class
2nd place: Nissan Z

The sleek little SLK, with its folding hard top, borrows its arrow-nosed look from Mercedes' far more expensive SL cars. Besides the design, the SLK offers its buyers a fun drive and nice little comforts like an optional "air scarf" that blows warm air around occupants' heads to make top-down driving on cold days more tolerable.

Among owners, the SLK scored particularly well for its high-quality feel.
