We’ve been good this year, Santa. Sort of.

As 2018 comes to a close, we look back on the year's automotive landscape with fondness, eager to see what automakers are dreaming up for next year. This year we drove some nice vehicles – a speedy Lamborghini SUV, a topless BMW, and a sporty Swedish sedan, among others. But there were naughty cars of note, as well – we're looking at you, Lincoln and Lexus. But of all the cars we drove – or even didn't, in 2018, these are the ones that we hope to find shoehorned under our Christmas tree when we wake up groggy-eyed tomorrow morning.
