There's plenty to look forward to, because there are almost too many new vehicles to choose from such as the redesigned, more modern Ford Mustang and the sleek, futuristic electric car from BMW, the i8. They're not all sports cars though; the tiny Jeep Renegade SUV and midsize Hyundai Sonata sedan are also on our list.

Lexus Changes Multimedia Controls, Still Distracting

Lexus' mouse-style control system, Remote Touch, debuted about five years ago. It was the luxury automaker's response to knob-based controllers from Audi, Mercedes-Benz and BMW. The interface had a certain familiarity in our computer-centric world, and so does the latest version of Remote Touch, which replaces the mouse controller with a laptop-style touchpad. It debuts on the 2015 Lexus RC sport coupe, which hits dealerships late this year.

Like the prior mouse controller, the new touchpad operates a cursor on the dashboard screen, and you move the cursor to select different systems, like navigation. The setup includes haptic feedback; when you move the cursor across a menu choice the touchpad pulses under your finger. Pressing down on the touchpad makes a selection.

2015 Lexus RC F: Up Close

One of the first things you notice about the new Lexus RC F — apart from its massive hourglass grille — is how low it is, both its roofline and stance. The coupe is hunkered down on 19-inch forged-alloy wheels, which together with low-profile tires fill out the wheel wells nicely.

The rear-quarter view is my favorite; it lets you see the coupe's stout rear fenders, fastback roofline, thin taillights and aggressive bumper styling.

2015 Lexus RC 350 Arriving in Late 2014

Rc3

Lexus' big reveal at the 2014 North American International Auto Show in Detroit was the high-performance RC F coupe, a car designed to take on the BMW M4 and Audi RS 5, among others. The luxury brand also brought the car the RC F is based on: the RC 350, which it first showed late last year at the Tokyo Motor Show. The 2015 RC 350 will be available at U.S. dealerships in November or December of this year.

The RC 350's design is a little toned down compared to the RC F, but not as much as you might expect. Lexus' spindle grille still dominates the front end, albeit in a different form, and it's bordered by headlights that wouldn't be out of place on a concept car. Flared rear fenders hint at the car's performance aspirations.
