That's a mighty fine list of machinery there, to be sure. But you may notice a few glaring omissions, most notably, in our eyes at least, the Mazda MX-5 Miata. For those keeping track, the little Japanese sports car had been on the list for eight consecutive years, ending in 2013, for a total of 14 appearances since hitting the market in 1989. Given the model's age and the rest of this new 10 Best list, we don't think Mazda will be too disappointed, however. Also missing is the Ford Focus/Focus ST and Mustang, which made it in 2013 in GT and Boss 302 guises. Finally, the Honda Fit falls off, along with the aforementioned FR-S and BRZ coupes.
So, fully half of last year's 10Best cars were removed for 2014. Here are the new faces: Head on over to Car and Driver for the complete rundown, scroll down below for a video, and feel free to let us know what you think of the magazine's 10Best Cars for 2014 in the Comments.
